Held at our seaside coastal village Lakeside, the EIBA Champion of Champions Bowls Competition took place on the 3rd to 6th February 2017.
The EIBA Champion of Champions Competition is a singles competition that brings together 16 of England’s top men and women bowlers. The bowlers play over 3 days for the title and this year’s Champion of Champions is Katherine Rednall!
Katherine Rednall won her first National Champion of Champions Title at Lakeside Coastal Village when she was just 16. The talented bowler then went on to claim the World Singles Champion Title just 3 years later, making her the World’s youngest winner of a World Indoor Bowls title.
Katherine then returned Lakeside to win her second Champion of Champions in 2016. If that wasn’t enough, Katherine also went on to claim the World Singles title in 2017!
To really get 2017 off with a bang, Katherine has retained her Champion of Champions title – all at a mere 21 years of age! This is now her third Champion of Champions title; I think you’ll agree it is pretty remarkable.
Lakeside Coastal Village has become the spiritual home of the National Champion of Champions Competition, which again attracted large crowds. Guests were treated to 3 days of brilliant bowling with England International skipper Jamie Chestney claiming his first men’s title.
Lakeside Bowls Centre Manager said, “It’s good to know that the our regular bowls groups, and the hundreds of guests we introduce to bowls each year, are able to enjoy the same facilities as the international stars who played here this weekend”.
Congratulations to Katherine, a fantastic achievement!
