PlaceholderThe Over 80 Singles Tournament is one of several Sun City Lawn Bowls Club annual events. It is open to any club member who is or becomes 80 years old anytime in the current year. Recent winners can be found in the Champions link in the main menu.

The tournament is played over a 4-day period, typically beginning Tuesday and ending Friday. The Tournament Director posts a sign-up sheet at the club "shack" prior to the event.

Day 1 - All contestants play - they are matched by random draw.
Day 2 - All contestants play - matches are determined by the day 1 draw.
