Hong Kong International Bowls Classic Carnival 2017

The Hong Kong International Bowls Classic started in 1981 for men and 2009 for women.  With the dedicated effort from the organizers, the Hong Kong Classic had been recognized as one of the most prestigious outdoor international events in the World Bowls annual calendar.

Over the years, there has been many overseas spectators and supporters that came to the Classic but found not much to do apart from watching bowls, shopping and sightseeing.

Having borne this in mind and after talking to spectators and supporters both overseas and locally, the organizers had done studies in the availability of venues and attractions to visitors, the inaugural Classic Carnival was successfully launched in November 2015.

Dates of the 2017 Classic Carnival will be, tentatively, 8th - 15th November 2017. Venue at Hong Kong Football Club an Indian Recreation Club, from Hong Kong Island. Format of the Carnival will be Fours or Mixed Fours and participating teams will be drawn into groups for round-robin games. Depending on the number of entries, finalised details will be issued.

Overseas teams participating will have to make their own way to Hong Kong and arrange their own accommodations.

Entry fee for the Carnival will be HK$8,000 per team which includes meals during games, local transportation, carnival souvenirs, Classic dinner, prizes and probably, a night out in the evening horse-racing.

Teams participating shall wear identical team shirts and white trousers/skirts.
