Open 4’s Bowls Tournament added to JBay Winterfest Events
The JBay Winterfest 2019 event organisers are proud to announce the addition of the Open 4’s Winterfest Bowls Tournament from 4-7th July.
Investec and Trink are the proud sponsors of this year’s bowls event, and the Jeffrey’s Bay Bowling Club will host the tournament over a four-day period, with prize money totaling R64,000.00. There will be up to 36 teams, comprising a mix of men and women bowlers, from clubs throughout South Africa. The tournament comprises eight games of 15 ends, running over the first three days, and then two games of 18 ends on the Sunday.
Bowls will bring a whole new element to the Winterfest this year. It is a game that is enjoyed by young and old, with families often in attendance and supporting their family members. These days more and more of the youngsters are getting involved in competing as well.
The Jeffrey’s Bay Bowling Club is also a social club, and members enjoy getting-together as much as competing. They will be hosting a braai night, as well as interacting with various stalls and sectors of the JBay Winterfest between competing. People entered into the event will enjoy the social side of this vibrant club, while in the running for a share of that R64k prize pool.
The Open 4’s Winterfest Bowls Tournament joins the already-established events at the JBay Winterfest like the Endurade JBay X Trail Run, the Skins Fishing Tournament and the Winterfest Funduro.
The Endurade JBay X Trail Run is a compact stage-race, with the target of 60km over 48 hours for those who are going to enter all three stages. For those that wish to run closer to a half-marathon distance, they can enter the 20km stand-alone race on the Sunday. This year the event moves to Kabeljous, which will ensure considerably less beach running, according to the event organisers, which is bound to make entrants cheerful.
There are also the Live In The Park free evening music sessions that will take place in the park after the surfing has taken place. While nothing has been confirmed as of yet, two of the band/musician names that have entered the conversation already are top-rated, award-winning South African artists, and there is a promise of even more big names to drop. As the bands are confirmed we will post to our social media platforms to let everyone know who is going to be jamming, so keep your eyes on our Facebook and Instagram platforms.
