We Proudly Sponsor the Junior Ribblesdale Classic 2024

We sponsored the Junior Ribblesdale Classic 2024 with a contribution of £1,000. The qualifying sessions, which took place on Saturday 27th April and Friday 10th May, showcased talent and sportsmanship among junior Crown Green Bowls enthusiasts.

The Junior Ribblesdale Classic Finals Day 2024 then took place on Sunday 26th May and saw eight talented qualifiers return to the Ribblesdale Wanderers Cricket and Bowling Club, less than a mile away from our Half Penny Meadows development in Clitheroe.

The finals day saw the final eight junior players and final 16 players in The Ribblesdale Classic take part and attracted hundreds of spectators as well as thousands joining us via our live broadcast on Blue Border Sports on YouTube.

Our £1,000 donation will go towards the prize money given to the juniors. Players come from all over the UK and the prize money allows them to use it to purchase new bowls and equipment that they need to play the sport.

Sam Evans, Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey Manchester, said: "We are thrilled to support the Junior Ribblesdale Classic 2024 and contribute to the growth of youth sports in the Ribble Valley. Initiatives like these align perfectly with our values of community engagement and promoting an active lifestyle among young people."


The Ribblesdale Classic, now in its fifth year, has established itself as a premier event in the Crown Green Bowls circuit, attracting participants from across the UK. With our sponsorship and the support of other stakeholders, the Junior Ribblesdale Classic aims to foster interest in the sport among a younger demographic while contributing to the vibrant community of Clitheroe.
