A new year brings new opportunity, as the 2018 Indoor season has kicked off and Bowls BC will offer 4 Provincial Indoor tournaments once agin this year, along with a qualifier that will be held at Qualicum Beach LBC for the Vancouver Island members.
Last year Bowls BC created these new Provincial Championships to add to the winter season, along with giving the Mixed Pairs Champions an opportunity to travel to the UK to participate in an WIBC International event. A great relationship has been created with the World Indoor Bowls Council, giving Bowls BC members the chance to experience representing the Province on a World stage. Last year Lynn Coules and Ed Logan participated at this great international event. This year the WIBC Championships will be held in Hartlepool, England on April 10-13, 2018.

Having a facility like the Pacific Indoor Bowls Club gives BC Bowlers the chance to play 12 months a year. The Indoor season runs from October-April and Outdoor May-September, showing that more time is spent inside rather than out, but in the past having less tournaments. To change this, Bowls BC worked closely with the PIBC to help increase participation for Indoor Bowling. There is a great opportunity for people to get out and enjoy Bowls throughout the winter and experience a world class facility.
