The 2016 Athena Beach Bowling Classic was held between the 2nd and 9th March and followed on from the inaugural Cyprus Festival last year. The festival was generously sponsored once again by The Athena Beach Hotel, Zenos Transfers, Cantina Per Vini Wine Cellar and The Royal Artemis Medical Centre. The total prize money increased to £7320.
The festival is a result of the hard work Ces Hope has put in building friendships with the hotel and local businesses.
The event was live streamed on the Live Bowls YouTube channel with commentary from Mel Evans MBE, Roy Armson, Lynn Pritchatt and Steve Davies. The streaming was supported by FLOWFIT, industry leader in the manufacturing and supplying of hydraulic components.
