The Dorset Resort invested over a £1,000,000 in opening the Championship Bowling Rink and Fitness Centre. It was a fantastic addition to the already extremely popular Resort of Luxury Accommodation and Championship Golf.

Two of the WORLDS GREATEST EVER bowlers David Bryant CBE & Tony Allcock MBE performed the Opening Ceremony at The Dorset Resort’s new 3 rink Indoor Bowls Arena on the 16th October 2009.

It was the first time that the two stars, who have won 29 World Bowls tittles between them, have opened a new bowling facility. This was the Bowls equivalent of the Golfing Legends Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer appearing together!

Over 200 people attended the opening; guest included the Chief Executives of Bowls England and The English Indoor Bowling Association, the EIBA Men’s & Ladies Presidents, and the Dorset Indoor & Outdoor Presidents, a real who’s who of the Bowls World.
