You could win the Scottish International Bowls Championships...

we're giving you the chance to play

The crowd is silent. Last year’s winner, Greg Harlow, watches on intently as you kneel down to survey the bowling green that lies ahead. Against all the odds you’ve made it to the final of the Scottish International Championships - this is your Leicester City moment...

Perhaps we’re getting ahead of ourselves, but this could soon be a reality thanks to our incredible wildcard entrant competition.

We're giving one colleague or member the chance to play their way to the Scottish International Championships and compete in an actual bowls tournament against the best players in the world.

In order for you to even get close to the finals, you’ll need to prove yourself first…

Saturday 3 September – Sunday 4 September: Regional competition playoffs
You and 47 other colleagues and members, drawn at random, will play against one another, head to head, until one victor for each region remains. Come out victorious and you’ll be representing your region in the final competition playoffs.

Sunday 2 October: Final Competition playoff – Blackpool
This is where it gets tough. You’ll now be playing against the top 5 bowls players in the wildcard competition. Make it through this and you’ll be on your way to Scotland.

November (Date TBC): Scottish International Bowls last 16
You’ve made it to the finals. You’re our Co-op champion, all that stands between you and eternal glory are the world’s best bowls players.

Everybody loves an underdog story, why not be that underdog?
