WBW Solicitors and WBW Chartered Financial Planners have agreed to provide funding for the friendly but competitive Open Bowls Tournament located in the heart of the English Riviera.

This annual event first started in 1994 and takes place in the beautiful setting of Torquay seafront which has remarkable views of both the beach and the rest of Torbay. Over the years, bowlers from every inch of the UK as well as from Holland, South Africa and even Australia have participated in the tournament. The tournament runs over a 7-day period from Sunday 16th to Saturday 22nd June 2019.

The funding from WBW will secure the future of the tournament for at least the next two years. WBW are thrilled to be able to support the three bowling clubs that host the tournament; Kings, Torquay and Victoria bowling clubs which are all located on the main Torquay seafront.

Steve Bulman, Managing Partner of WBW Solicitors said “We are delighted to be able to support such a great local event for the next two years. The tournament attracts people from far and wide down to the English Riviera to enjoy all that the bay has to offer”.

The opportunity for funding this prestigious event presented itself following the loss of financial support from Torbay Council. The council began a gradual withdrawal of its involvement with the tournament from 2004 and the last grant was awarded in 2018. For a while the future of the tournament was unclear as the ERBC struggled to find funding. Alan Horwell, Bowling Tournament organiser said “We are delighted that WBW have come forward to support this popular event in Torbay’s sporting calendar; we very much look forward to working with our new sponsors during the years to come”.

Dave Robinson, Director of WBW Chartered Financial Planners and co-sponsor said “We hope that the event is a great success and wish all the competitors the very best of luck”.
