Norfolk Island Bowling Club and The Travel Centre Norfolk Island invite lawn bowlers to participate in the longstanding and very popular Bounty Bowls tournament 28 April to 2 May 2013.

Norfolk Island famous for the dramatic story of the Mutiny on the Bounty is home to Bounty descendants and the Norfolk Island Bowling Club who began the Bounty Bowls tournament 52 years ago.

Bowlers travelling from Australia and New Zealand are likely to be competing against descendants of Fletcher Christian, Adams, Quintal and McCoy, although visiting bowlers will find these local bowling descendants to be a friendly, less mutinous bunch.

Bounty Bowls open fours competition (where teams can be men, women or mixed) is well and truly stamped on the bowls calendar. However if April/May doesn’t suit visitors are welcome to come later in the year for the TAB Triples 18-22 August (ladies or mens teams) or sooner for the February Pairs mixed event 24-28 February 2013.

Bowlers come to participate in the tournament but almost as importantly they come, to enjoy a holiday and the many visitor experiences Norfolk Island has to offer. Tours, shopping and attractions are slotted in between or after their time on the greens.

In fact so popular is the holidaying side of the visit that the Norfolk Island Bowling club hosts a second week of bowls for those who can extend for a two week stay. A separate mixed fours comp will run 5-9 May - winner takes all!

The bowling club is located in the centre of town all visitor needs are literally next door, including shops, cafes, island touring and accommodation. Driving after play is optional. Travel to the island for the Bounty Bowls or come another time of year for a social rollup, the local club member hospitality and friendship like the climate, remains a year-round constant.
