Prize money will go to 6 Mixed Pairs teams and 8 Singles players. We also have two draws, each draw for a set of Aero Bowls.** Thank you Aero Bowls!

 

WHO CAN ENTER?

We welcome bowlers from all over North America to come to the beautiful city of Vancouver and test your bowling skills on our precise, fast carpet built to World Bowls standards, the only indoor facility of its kind in North America.

The entry fee for the Pacific Coast Open is $100 per person for each event you choose to enter. Note: No refunds if you cancel less than 10 days before the event.

PLEASE NOTE: To enter, you must register as a MIXED PAIRS team. Both of you have the option of also competing in the (gender neutral) BRUCE MATHESON OPEN SINGLES event. You cannot enter just the singles event by itself.


Included with your entry fee:

  • Welcome reception at our host hotel, the Rosedale on Robson

  • Continental breakfast each day at PIBC

  • Snacks/tea/coffee each day at PIBC

 

To ensure there is room for visitors to our beautiful city, the organizers have placed a limit on the number of local entries. 12 of the 24 Mixed Pairs slots will be reserved for out-of-town bowlers (registration deadline for out-of town bowlers is October 6th).

 

Bowlers who already belong to a club within the Vancouver & District Bowls Association (V&D) will need to register separately for the qualifying tournament to be held Sunday, October 6th at PIBC (registration deadline for V&D bowlers is September 29th)
