Festival of Skittles

What better way to celebrate the end of lockdown than with a Grand Festival of Skittles

It’s Great To Be Back

What better way to celebrate the end of lockdown than with our brand new event – the Grand Festival of Skittles (adults only) at the very popular Sand Bay Holiday Park, Weston-super-Mare.

Here’s your chance to celebrate your favourite sport with two full days of skittling competitions, in a super value deal including accommodation, meals and entertainment, all in one place. You’ll be able to use all the facilities at Sand Bay.

We’re Serious About big cash prizes too. Winning teams will collect £500 and £100 awaits the singles and pairs winners!

Let’s Get Those Balls Rolling

The fun begins on Friday morning (September 17) with a full day of skittling competition in the singles, men’s and ladies’ pairs events, continuing after dinner. Then you can relax or hit the dance floor to some great live entertainment. And of course, the bars will be open late.

Saturday will see another full day of skittling as the men’s and ladies’ teams take to the alleys. After dinner, the group rounds will conclude, followed by some more fantastic live music and late bars. On Sunday we’ll be cheering the qualifying teams for the final knock-out stages with presentations at around 2 pm. Every team will be guaranteed at least five matches at the Festival.

Supporters and non-playing partners are most welcome to take up this incredible deal, subject to availability, and give their skittlers some noise on the alleys.

Please note, there won’t be enough alley space for mixed pairs or mixed teams. Skittle entry fees will be £6 per person per event.

What Does the Festival of Skittles weekend include?

Late night bars

A popular feature of our weekends! You can carry on partying super late– and it’s not far to stagger to bed

All Skill Levels Welcome

Friendly fun on the alleys for regular skittlers and absolute beginners. Non playing supporters welcome too.

Scrummy food

Dinner on Friday night, breakfast, lunch and dinner on Saturday and breakfast on Sunday, on a self service basis.


Comfortable chalets in the grounds of the holiday park, plus the use of all the facilities on site.


What better fun can there be than meeting up with your mates and celebrating being back on the alleys.

Range of Skittles competitions

From singles and pairs to teams, there’ll be some big cash prizes for the winners and the runners-up.

Points Mean Prizes

They certainly do – in the team events, the winning team will receive a cash prize of £500, with the runners-up team collecting £250. In the singles and pairs events, winners will receive £100 and runners-up £50.

The competitions will be for men’s singles and pairs, ladies’ singles and pairs, men’s teams and ladies’ teams. Sorry but there won't be enough alley space for mixed pairs or team events.

For the team events, you will need five players (a rotation of four players plus one member officiating their game). If you don’t have a full team or pairs partner, we’ll do our best to match you up with other players.

The Process


All you need to do is get five skittlers together (a team of four with one member officiating their game). Regrettably we don’t have alley space for mixed teams. Supporters and partners welcome, subject to availability.


When you’re ready to book or have some questions, it’s super helpful to have some info ready. We’ll need a breakdown of your team, in terms of entries for singles, pairs and team events.


Once booked, we will send over your statement detailing payment information. Then 3 – 4 weeks before your weekend, we’ll send the itinerary to share with your group. Then just pack your bag.

Location Lowdown

Sand Bay is in a great location with the chalets set in 17 acres of lovely gardens, beside a long sandy beach with unforgettable sunsets.

There’s a large indoor pool, jacuzzi and arcades to enjoy and it’s close to shops for those who fancy a spot of retail therapy. We’ll have some fabulous entertainment lined up for both nights including live music. We know nearly all skittlers love to dance. The bars will be open late of course.

So what are you waiting for? We’re looking forward to being back where we all belong – on the alleys. Find out more here.
