Welcome to the Poole Borough Bowls Association Website


On August 21st 2021 "The Tournament Committee" announced that following the unqualified success of the 55th Poole Borough Open 'McDonalds' Bowls Tournament in July 2021 the 56th Tournament will be held from Sunday 24th July to Friday 29th July 2022.

Press Release can be found here.

Full tournament details can be found here and an Entry Form can be downloaded from here.

Competitors should note that this will be a week later than normal.  In 2023 Poole Borough Open and Bournemouth Open Bowls Tournaments were due to align ‘back to back’ but due to the recent successes this year both Tournament Committees have agreed to bring this forward to 2022.  Bournemouth Open Bowls Tournament will follow on immediately from Sunday 31st July – Saturday 6th August 2022.  Together they will create a ‘Festival of Bowls on the South Coast 2022’
.  The rational for this initiative is explained in more detail here.

We pride ourselves on being the friendliest tournament and 'McDonalds' are keen to support us again as the 'principal sponsor' and make it an even more enjoyable experience for all participants and spectators.

The three member and host clubs Broadstone Wessex, Branksome Park, and Poole Park Bowls Clubs look forward to welcoming you to their rinks over the week.

Once again the tournament will be supporting Ronald McDonald House Charities.  Your support when the time comes will be very much appreciated.
