Start making plans for the world’s largest and richest open bowls tournament. The Australian Open is held at Broadbeach Bowls Club from June 11 to 24, within a 2-minute drive or a lovely 9-minute walk from Boulevard Towers.
The Australian Open has grown into a notable bowling event since coming to the Gold Coast in 2015. The sporting event will be in 14 separate Gold Coast host clubs over 14 days. This tournament attracts approximately 2,000 bowlers from all around Australia and the world and is open to any registered bowler.
Yes, the tournament is an open-entries event with no qualification requirements. In the beginning, each discipline has sectional rounds, with qualifiers going to knockouts. There are no seedings in either sectional or knockout play. Therefore it’s a completely random draw.
