On behalf of the U18 committee we thank all players for attending the observation days and selection for these squads was very difficult.  We as a committee are very impressed with the standard of bowls and our future looks bright. 

Congratulations to those who were selected and may you be looking forward to the coming season.  For those of you who were unsuccessful this time, please don’t feel despondent and continue to train hard and improve your bowls.  As the athletes turn 18 new squad members will be required so you may get a call up during the season.

Good bowling,

Regards Bowls Victoria U18 Bowls Committee.
