Cast Open full cast


Try as he might, the roguishly handsome Cliff Starkey, just can't keep out of trouble. In his sleepy home town on the English coast, nothing much inspires him...apart from bowls. Cliff has always preferred to play by his own rules much to the disapproval of the regimented, elderly bowls fraternity. Before long, the bay boy of bowls is turning the sedate and very English pastime upside down with hysterical results.

"Blackball" is a 2003 sport comedy. In the world of spectator sports, there are the all time greats: Football, Rugby, Tennis, Golf and... Lawn Bowls...? In the sleepy seaside town of Torquay, on "The English Riviera," the game reserved for geriatrics and pensioners is taken VERY seriously. None more so than by the reigning champion Ray Speight, conservative and stuffy he has been Torquay's home grown hero for over 20 years. "Blackball" directed by Mel Smith.
