Vancouver's English Bay Cup is a ten-pin bowling tournament held annually in Vancouver, BC, Canada, usually the second weekend of March. The event is volunteer run by two leagues bowling at Revs in Burnaby, BC.
We're an IGBO (International Gay Bowling Organization) member tournament and sanctioned by the CTF (Canadian Tenpin Federation).
Our goal is to create a fun weekend and promote camaraderie between bowlers. We strive to offer a safe, welcoming environment for the LGBTQ community and our friends and family.
Although sport is at the core of our event, we feel the true legacy of the event is the fostering of friendships and understanding within our community.
VEBC generally attracts a mix of men (65%) and women (35%), generally split evenly from Vancouver BC, Seattle WA and Portland OR.
The tournament consists of a registration party on the Friday night, nine games of bowling over Saturday and Sunday with an awards banquet on Sunday.
