UBC Challengers' Registration

Are you interested in playing in the UBC in 2020?

There will be a one-day, action-packed qualifying event prior to the Ultimate Bowls Week in December 2020. This gives anyone the opportunity to play in a competition under the same rules and format as the UBC (as seen on TV!).

Competition details:

The field size is limited to the first 24 teams to enter. This is on a first in, first served basis. The UBC event management team will randomly draw three sections of eight teams, which will give every team the opportunity to play a minimum of seven matches during the event. The top two from each section and the next best two overall will proceed to the knock-out quarterfinals. The event will be a full day affair (early start and late finish).

1st prize is entry into the UBC main event (note this is UBC04 only) which is commencing the next evening (Monday 14th December) also at the Deer Park Club

Note: the format is subject to change depending on final team entry numbers.
