Indoor bowls

The Somerset County Indoor Bowls Fours Championships has received a boost thanks to Specsavers opticians in Minehead.

Specsavers has sponsored this year’s indoor bowls championship, including the finals day and prize money for the winners and runners up.

For the first time, the competition now also has an age 16 and Under, Mixed Singles element to give the young people who play bowls in the county's 21 clubs a chance to play in a serious county competition.

Local businesses, support local sports

Philippa Hales, store director at Specsavers in Minehead, says: ‘Everyone at the store is very pleased to have sponsored the local championships, supporting not only a healthy active lifestyle but also the importance of great eyesight in sport.’

‘We feel that it’s important for local businesses to support their local clubs and we are very proud to have sponsored the Somerset County Indoor Bowls Fours Championships.’
