Champion of Champions called off

The COVID-19 pandemic claimed another victim yesterday with the official announcement that the 2020 World Singles Champion of Champions would not go ahead.

Originally scheduled for presentation in Australia at the picturesque Adelaide Bowling Club between October 26 and 1 November, the event was cancelled after close consultation between World Bowls, Bowls Australia and the host venue.

The next staging of this annual event, which will be the 2021 World Singles Champion of Champions, is being planned to be staged in the latter part of 2021 and negotiations are in progress regarding the date and venue.

World Bowls fully appreciates how disappointing the cancellation decision must be for all concerned.
