Touring Groups

Valverde Bowls Club is always happy to welcome bowls tours from UK (or elsewhere). We can put up teams to play against tour parties of up to 8 rinks.

The lists below summarise recent and forthcoming tours. Clicking on each link will give details - game scores for past matches, Valverde teams (when selected) for future matches.

These games are always played in a good spirit, and are an ideal gentle introduction for the inexperienced player to the world of competitive match play

Any club planning to visit the Algarve and wishing to arrange to visit Valverde should contact Jennifer Preece, club tour liaison officer.
We are a Bowls Club and not a travel agency, so we cannot book flights, hotels, etc.,
but we are happy to recommend Personal Touch and Bowling Abroad, who both specialise in organising bowling holidays to the Algarve (and elsewhere).

An analysis of VBC performance against touring teams, season by season, can be viewed here.

For results from previous seasons, see Previous Seasons.
