Update 14-1-2022

Unfortunately, we had to take the decision today to cancel the Valcke Bronzen Schietspoel Tournament 2022.

Due to the COVID-19 restrictions in the Netherlands, it was not possible to organize the tournament on the original date. We tried to find a new date, but in particular the overcrowded Dutch match calendar in combination with the planned and postponed international matches left us no choice but to cancel the tournament.

From 2023 we will organize the tournament in June, so that there is less chance of lockdowns and other misery. Next year the Valcke Bronzen Schietspoel Tournament will be held from 18 to 25 June 2023.


New Sponsor

The Bronzen Schietspoel Tournament is one of the oldest bowling tournaments in the Netherlands and has been a fixture in the European Bowling Tour for many years. Once started as a small tournament in the 1970s, it has grown into one of the top tournaments in Europe with a prize pool filled with 50,000 euros for the coming year.

Just like Bronzen Schietspoel, Valcke Bowling is a fixed value in the bowling world. Valcke Bowling has been Brunswick Bowling's exclusive distributor for decades. Recently the brands Hammer, Ebonite, Columbia and Track were added. "We are very proud to link our name to the most beautiful bowling tournament in the Benelux." Says current CEO Henri Valcke. “We want to continue to support the sport of bowling, even in difficult times. In addition to the tournament, we will organize clinics for pro shops in collaboration with Brunswick. ”

The Bronzen Schietspoel Tournament will continue as the Valcke Bronzen Schietspoel Tournament in the coming years. "We are very pleased that in these difficult times Valcke Bowling has made the choice to support our tournament and therefore also the bowling sport in this way." According to Luc Jansen.
