by Lachlan Williams

Bowls fans will once again have access to view some of the biggest matches of the 2021 Australian Open live from the comfort of their home.

From June 19-June 25, play will be live-streamed to Bowls Australia’s Facebook page.

Across the last two days, streamed matches will include finals of the Over-60s Pairs, Under-18 Singles, Fours, and Multi-Disability and Vision-Impaired disciplines and much more.

Rinkside Live’s Clive Adams will commentate the live-streamed action, alongside familiar stars of the sport.

Once again, both the Men’s and Women’s Singles and Pairs finals will be broadcast live to viewers across both free-to-air television and pay-TV, on 7Two, Fox Sports, Kayo and Sky Sports NZ on June 24 and June 25.

Jack Heverin will return to the broadcast anchor role, alongside special comments from Carla Krizanic and Matthew Flapper, while Lynsey Clarke will again appear as the host of the coverage.

Finals content will also be featured in The Bowls Show on 7Two, Fox Sports and Kayo later in the year.

The 2021 Australian Open will be staged across the Gold Coast from June 12-25, courtesy of support from Tourism and Events Queensland and City of Gold Coast.
