The curtain has come down on the 20th World Indoor Bowls Championships at Potters Resort and what a year it was! The Just 2018 World Indoor Bowls Championships were a huge success, with players from around the world competing to earn a place in history at the biggest bowls event in the world.

Once again, spectators attending the 17 days of bowls action had the opportunity to enter a competition to guess the colour of the jacket being worn by Judy Potter at the Final of the World Indoor Bowls Open Singles Championship. Judy wore a different coloured jacket for every day she attended the World Bowls matches and this fun competition was the perfect opportunity to raise money for worthy causes. Judy wore a patterned yellow jacket to the 2018 Final, and money was also raised from seat cushion and World Bowls Tour programme donations.

We caught up with Judy, who said: “This 40th anniversary of the Championships and 20 years hosted at Potters Resort, was yet again another wonderful year. I can’t thank our guests enough for their generosity in getting behind our fundraising activities during the Championships and contributing to the Potters Friends Foundation.”

Thank you to everyone for their generosity. We can’t wait for the Just 2019 World Indoor Bowls Championships!
