Some of the top bowlers in the world will be taking to the rinks at the Risbygate Sports Club, in Bury St Edmunds, later this month for the annual Master’s Tournament.

The club’s international Mark Royal has sent out invites to top players on the circuit to join him including Greg Harlow (World Bowls Tour ranked one), Wayne Willgress (World Indoor Singles semi-finalist 2018), Rebecca Field (World Indoor singles runner-up 2018), John Price (winner of World Indoor Singles, Pairs and Mixed Pairs) and Jason Greenslade and Les Gillett (World Indoor Pairs champions 2017) to battle it out on Sunday, February 18.

Joining the stars will be two of Risbygate’s bowlers who won through internal play-offs ... Matthew Smith, of Ixworth, and Marcus Fuller, of Stowmarket.

Katherine Rednall was last year’s winner of a closely contested final and everyone will want to win this major prize immediately following the world championships a few miles up the road at Hopton.
