Paradise Point Bowls Club and Mudgeeraba Lawn Bowls Club, both Australian Open host venues, have been added to the lineup for this year’s World Bowls Championships to cater for what is set to be the biggest instalment of the event in its history.
With 47 nations expected to join the competition on the Gold Coast, almost double the 24-nation attendance of previous events, the two clubs are joining original hosts Broadbeach, Helensvale and Musgrave Hill, to provide much-needed green space for the four-day competition.
World Bowls CEO Neil Dalrymple said that the five world-class venues will add to what will be an amazing event that will see an incredible 1,300 matches played across the Gold Coast clubs from 29 August – 10 September.
The 2023 World Bowls Championships will also break new ground as the first in history to stage para-bowls events within its program. Bowls Australia CEO Neil Dalrymple welcomed the inclusion of para-events, which will not only showcase the talented para-athletes at the 2023 Championships, but demonstrate bowls inclusivity as a sport.
