THE inaugural Barefoot Bowls Championship will start at the Nadi Sports Club next week.

The pairs event sponsored by BRED Bank has already attracted 16 teams.

"Teams can only have one experienced bowler," he said.

The winning team will get $250 while runner-up will receive $150. The third placed team will receive $60 and the fourth placed team will get $40.

Seasoned bowlers Shorab Khan, David Aitcheson, Som Padayachi, Sitiveni Tikoisuva, Sophie Khan, Rick Eyre and Rajnesh Prasad will participate in the championship.
