Tournament History

In 1928, the then Governor General of Canada, His Excellency the Right Honourable Viscount Willingdon presented a silver trophy to the Eastern Ontario Lawn Bowling Association for annual competition between Men’s ‘fours’ teams from the Eastern Ontario LBA and the Québec Lawn Bowling Federation. The Tournament now also includes competitions between Women’s ‘fours’ and between the Ladies and Men’s Novice Singles winners from District 16 of OLBA and their counterparts of the Quebec LBF. The tournament alternates between the two provinces hosted by various Clubs and remains an important and prestigious part of the regional bowling calendar.
