The Qualicum Beach Lawn Bowling Club (QBLBC) will be making good use of its indoor facility once again, this time for a tournament coming its way in March.

Sponsored by Bowls B.C., the QBLBC was chosen to host a ‘pilot project’ for both a men’s and lady’s indoor singles tournament, taking place from March 4 to March 6.

The indoor facility, which is used by members of the QBLBC and various others from across British Columbia throughout the winter months, boasts a large playing surface for bowlers to utilize while the weather outdoors is less than ideal through lawn bowling’s usual off-months.

“We’re very excited for our club and community,” QBLBC marketing director Meryl Yates said. “We’re expecting many players and spectators from across B.C. and will be working hard to make this event a success.”

“Hopefully, it will become an annual event and bring visitors to Oceanside during a normally quiet time of year.”
