Spalding host their annual Under-25 Open on Sunday with some of the best young bowlers in the country in action at the Castle Sports Complex.

The tournament, again being generously sponsored by Hughes Electrical, is played to a quick-fire Premier Threes format. Each match is best of three sets, each being just three ends.

Spalding players will be well represented, including under-25 international and current champion Jordan Philpott, plus Ruby Hill, who recently became the under-18 national singles champion and is the first player to be an under-18, under-25 and senior international at the same time.

Other players going for glory include Acle’s Dan Seabourne, who is an under-25 international, and Glenn Williams from Riverain, who recently won the national triples title.

Play continues throughout the day and entry is free.

Meanwhile, defending champion Martin Spencer, of Spalding, was beaten 21-13 by Stan Thompson from North Cave in the last 16 of the National Indoor Championships men’s singles at Melton Mowbray on Friday.

Spalding Town will be opening their green for the 2017 season on Wednesday, April 12, at 6pm.
