2019 Australian Open

The Australian Open is back again for 2019!

After four massive years the World's Biggest Bowls Festival will again hit the sunny Gold Coast in 2019.  

To build upon the success of the 2018 open, some of the features of the 2019 event include:

  • Open disciplines in Singles, Pairs & Fours, Under-18 Boys' and Girls' Singles as well as an Over-60s Pairs discipline as an alternative to Open Pairs;
  • Up to 13 host venues with some of the best greens in the world, including the host clubs for the 2019 Asia Pacific Championships and 2020 World Championships;
  • $250,000 in total prize money, across just under 780 prize money paying places;
  • A "Player of the Tournament" cheque for $2,500 to reward the best and most consistent individual player across all open disciplines;
  • Opportunity to catch up with old friends and meet new ones;
  • Take part in the festival atmosphere that is the World's Biggest Bowls Festival and the famous Mega Bowl competitions!

Along with the Australian Open, players will also be able to enjoy all the sights and sounds (not to mention the weather) that the Gold Coast has to offer, and the area truly has something for all to see and enjoy.
