ECBA Carpet Bowls Festival 2012
Monday 14th to Friday 18th May 2012

This was the 9th year that this event has been held and it continues to be popular but there has been a significant drop in entries this year, no doubt the current financial position affecting everyone is a major factor but illness and sadly the loss of some of our regular competitors has also had an impact.

Despite this we still had 48 rinks 96 pairs and 120 singles taking part.

Next year will be the 10th anniversary of this event and the date is Monday 13th May until Friday 17th May 2013.
