Last year Bowls BC formed a partnership with the WIBC as Lynn Coules and Ed Logan went over to represent British Columbia at the World Indoor Bowls Senior Championships. This has been a great avenue for our players to display their Indoor Bowling skills as we have the opportunity to train at the Pacific Indoor Bowls Club throughout the year.
