DARLINGTON SOUTH Park Bowls Club are on a mission to turn its bowling venue into a sporting hub and bring bowls into the 21st Century.  We are a club always fighting the stigma of the sport being primarily old men with pipes and slippers and an opportunity has arisen for us to do so but we need your help.

We have a few projects on the go, however we hope to bring 'BONANZA BOWLS' to the park.  This is a new concept and popular competition of bowls played with multi-coloured bowls and music to create a carnival atmosphere.  The rules have been modernised where points for a certain colour of bowls can differ.

The competition itself has proven very popular in indoor bowls where South Shields run this successfully, it has also expanded across the Country and furthermore into Scotland.  The new concept is ran by current Hong Kong Classic Singles Champion David Bolt and would be a fantastic thing to bring to Darlington to raise awareness of how much fun and how competitive also bowls can be as a sport.

To attract competitiors to make this copetition viable we need to try and boost the prize pot, any donations or sponsorships would be really appreciated, we will ensure that the sponsored are named within all adverts and pinned to be visible on teh day and leading up to the competition.

If successful we would like to make this a bigger day at South Park and invite any entertainers who are willing to volunteer themselves for the day to make it a spectacle fo the public.

Please if you are willing to make a donation or sponsor the club please contact Scott on 07984 603455 or
