A seafront event thought to be the largest outdoor bowls tournament in the country is getting ready to roll in the summer.

Organised by the borough council, the Great Yarmouth Festival of Bowls is a four-week tournament and this year runs between August 27 and the September 22, with around 1,200 competitors taking part.

Organisers are reminding teams from across the country to get their entries in.

This year will be the 72nd consecutive year of the tournament.

Spaces are still available in all categories: men's and ladies singles, pairs and triples, mixed pairs and triples, over 60s singles and pairs, as well as the under 30s singles.
