Burlington set to host 2022 Canadian Lawn Bowling Championships

The 2022 Canadian Lawn Bowling Championships are set to begin at the Burlington Lawn Bowling Club in Burlington, Ontario. The competition takes place from August 15-25, 2022 and will feature top bowlers from across the country in men’s and women’s pairs, fours, and singles. The pairs and fours disciplines will take place from August 15-20, while the singles will occur August 21-25. The winners of the singles events will represent Canada at the 2023 World Bowls Champion of Champions event.  

The Burlington Lawn Bowling Club is no stranger to this event, having hosted the pairs and fours in 2019 when the event last ran. This year, they are also hosting the singles event, which was last held in Kitchener in 2019. Under the watchful eye of host organizing committee chair and greenskeeper extraordinaire Charlie Roach, players can expect a quality event on some of the best greens Ontario can offer. 

Many of 2019’s gold medal winners are back to play on Burlington’s greens, albeit many have switched disciplines: The Pituley brothers from Saskatchewan are competing in Fours, meaning there will be a new Men’s Pairs champion this year; Derek McKie, skip of the 2019 Men’s Fours gold medal team is now competing in pairs alongside Murray Bennewies; Peggy Plathan and Patricia Walker have teamed up with Bev Robinson and Jan Robinson in Women’s Fours, leaving the door open for new Women’s Pairs champions this year; Jennifer MacDonald who was part of the winning Women’s Fours team in 2019 is now competing in pairs alongside Joanna Cooper.
