Knock them down!

Gay & Lesbian Sport Bern GLSBe is organising the bowling tournament at EuroGames Bern 2023. The competition will take place at CineBowling Muri, located just outside of Bern. The venue is fairly new, having opened in 2018, and boasts a well-equipped facility with 12 lanes. Free shoe rental is available for all EuroGames participants.

Three competitions will be held: Singles (male-identified/female-identified/non-binary), doubles (male-identified/female-identified/non-binary) and mixed team (4 players).

It is not necessary to indicate your handicap during registration. Your handicap will be calculated on the day of the tournament on the basis of an average value.

In case of a lower number of participants, the tournament will only be held on Thursday, 27 July. Should this be the case we will inform you by 31 May, 2023 so you have the opportunity to add a second sport to your EuroGames programme. The tournament will be directed by Tammo van den Heuvel, manager of GLSBe’s bowling group.
