For the second year the competition has been sponsored by the fantastic Co-op Funeralcare and this has enabled the competition to return to the television screens.
The nation watched as some of the best players in the game battled it out to be this year’s champion and join the greatest bowling honour’s board. Tim Houghton, from Garstang, proved to be too good for them all and was a worthy winner.
The programmes are now available to watch again on the Globegig Media website (please click here) and join a fantastic selection of crown green bowls competitions broadcast by Globegig Media.
The action from Tuesday and Wednesday (finals day) were originally broadcast on the 20th and 21st September. In total there is nearly thirteen hours of the best crown green bowls you could hope to see and the most exciting bowling action broadcast on national television.
For a crown green bowler this is the competition valued above all others.
Steve Sharples, Managing Director of Globegig Media released this statement:
“Globegig Media is delighted to make this years Co-op Funeralcare Waterloo Handicap available to be viewed again. The programmes were originally live streamed and shown on ITV and we are now able to let the bowling world enjoy them again. Our thanks to the Waterloo Committee and the many sponsors who made this possible”.
I hope you enjoy the action from the Co-op Funeral Care Waterloo Handicap and all the other programmes available on the site.
Hopefully the large TV audience and, hopefully, high numbers viewing the programmes on-line will enable the future discussions regarding the televising or live-streaming of bowls competitions to go relatively smoothly.
