After a 12 year absence from Nova Scotia hosting the top national event in Junior Lawn Bowls, Lawn Bowls Nova Scotia are pleased to announce that the Dartmouth Lawn Bowls Club has been selected by Bowls Canada Boulingin as the host of the 2017 Canadian Junior and Under-25 Championship, to be held July 31-August 7, 2017.
“We’re excited at the opportunity to be able to showcase the future stars of our sport,” event co-chair Ann Marie Siteman stated after learning of Dartmouth’s selection to host the event. “An event like this is an honour to bring back to Nova Scotia with an opportunity for local bowlers and the public to see outstanding play from these top notch Juniors that will not disappoint.”
These championships offer many opportunities to the young stars of our sport from around the country. The winners of the Under-25 Men’s and Women’s Singles will represent Canada at the 2018 World Junior Championship, held in recent years at the Broadbeach Bowls Club in Queensland, Australia. As well, the top four in each of the Junior and Under-25 Singles events will be named to the Youth Developmental Squad of the Canadian National Team.
A host of many national level events since the club was founded in 1982, the Dartmouth Lawn Bowling Club has hosted many major competitions including the Canadian Lawn Bowling Championships. The club most recently hosted the Women’s tournament of the Canadian Senior Triples Championship in August 2016. They are the largest club in Nova Scotia with over 130 members playing on the artificial turf green on Pleasant Street, just a few minutes away from downtown Dartmouth.
