The West Vancouver Lawn Bowling Club was recently pegged as the host site for the 2016 Canadian Outdoor Singles Championship running Sept. 6-11.
“We are preparing to give Canada’s lawn bowlers a great competition along with a memorable experience,” said club president Tim Mason in a release. “Our committee is already working hard to prepare for the event as we take great pride in being chosen to host the 2016 Canadian Singles. The Open format gives every bowler across the Country the opportunity to participate in a Canadian Championships, one we believe in and a major reason why we wanted to host the event.”
The Canadian Singles Championship is an annual outdoor event for men and women with the winners going on to represent Canada at the World Bowls Champion of Champions competition in November of the following calendar year. Previously held in conjunction with the Canadian Lawn Bowls Championships, the Singles moved to an open format in 2013 as part of an initiative to align with Canada’s long-term athlete development framework.
