Bowls England Celebration Matches are a great way for Affiliated Clubs to celebrate an anniversary or a special event.

Celebration Matches are usually held when a Club or County reaches its 50th anniversary and then rising in multiples of 25 years.

The respective Bowls England President will compile their programme a year in advance and make a final decision regarding the schedule. They will usually bring a team of six rinks.
