Venues Announced for 2017 National Championships

Ottawa, Ontario | January 13th, 2017

Bowls Canada is excited to announce the venues for the 2017 National Championships.

Dartmouth Lawn Bowling Club will be hosting the 2017 Canadian Junior and Under 25 Championships, from July 31st – August 7th, 2017.  After a 12 year absence from Nova Scotia, the top national junior event is heading back.  The chair for the event is Ann Marie Siteman. Her experience traveling to many national championships with her son John will be a significant asset for the 2017 event.  The Dartmouth LBC most recently co-hosted the 2016 Canadian Senior Triples Championships in August.  They are the largest club in Nova Scotia with over 130 members playing on the artificial turf green.

The Canadian Lawn Bowling Championships will be hosted at the Juan de Fuca Lawn Bowling Club in beautiful Victoria, British Columbia from August 13th – 19th, 2017.  Juan de Fuca is no stranger to hosting high calibre events, as they are the only club in British Columbia with a four grass green facility.  In 2009, Juan de Fuca hosted the Canadian Championships followed by the North American Challenge in 2012.  Davie Mathie will be the chair for this event.

Peterborough Lawn Bowling Club will host the Canadian Senior Triples Championships from August 24th-30th in Peterborough, Ontario.  The club successfully hosted this event in 2013 and is excited to once again welcome Canada’s top Senior Triples teams to their two green facility.  In 2012, the Peterborough LBC partnered with the Whitlaw Mariners Senior Club to construct a beautiful new clubhouse.  The chair for this event is Jeff Lawrence.

Bowls Manitoba will once again host the Outdoor Singles Championships at the Dakota Lawn Bowling Centre and Norwood Lawn Bowling Club.  The Outdoor Singles will run from September 4th – 9th in Winnipeg, Manitoba.  In 2015, Winnipeg hosted the Outdoor Singles where local resident, John Bjornson claimed the men’s title and just competed for Canada at the 2016 Champion of Champions.  The co-chairs are John Bjornson and Phil Clark.  The Host Organizing Committee is excited to have the Outdoor Singles back in Winnipeg.

Pointe-Claire Lawn Bowling Club will be hosting the Mixed Pairs Championships this year.  The event will run from September 14th-19th in Pointe-Claire, Quebec.  These Championships are one of Bowls Canada’s most popular championships as they enable men and women to compete together for a National title. This one green facility contributed to hosting the Canadian Championships back in 2012.  The chair of this event is Ann Ditmar.
