Sunderland & District Bowling Association Competitions

The Sunderland & District currently run two open competitions - The Silver Jacks and The Burkett Shield plus a team knock out 3-2-1 Triples sometimes fondly referred to the "Ted Rogers Triples" (after the TV quiz show). At the latter end of the season their is also a Champion of Champions Singles competition played which was expanded to incorprate a Seniors Champion of Champions in 1998. Although not organised by the District the council run Town Tournament was once a calendar highlight and in 1992 it was rebranded the City Singles, sadly interest from the council and the local bowls scene dropped off and in 2006 Roker Marine's Bobby Graham was the last winner of the event.
