Coverage of the 2015 Victorian Open

by Team BV

How can I find out what’s happening at the 2015 Victorian Open? We’re glad you asked. Here’s your guide.

Watch: WIN TV Shepparton
WIN TV covers the event in detail on its local news. It’s on weeknights during the tournament from 7pm. They’re a terrific supporter of our event. So watch WIN TV News for wraps on the event on weeknights. And keep an eye out for the Vic Open TV ad running on WIN if you’re in town!
Read: Shepparton News
The Shepparton News provides excellent coverage of both the Victorian Open, and of the Goulburn Valley pennant competition. The newspaper is a strong supporter of local bowls. We urge our members and those involved in the event to support them, and buy the newspaper daily. Or subscribe to the Smart Edition.
Listen: ONE FM Bowls show
Brian Nisbet and Dave Hardie have a great local bowls program covering all news in the Goulburn Valley, including the Victorian Open, on a Saturday morning from 8am on 98.5FM. Listen in for a preview and wrap-up of the event.
Website: We will be updating results as matches finish, so if you want quick information about how a match went, look here first. There will be news stories throughout each day of the tournament, as well as pictures and photo galleries. Check regularly. You might be in one!
Heads Up: Bowls Victoria will produce a daily edition of our e-newsletter Heads Up for the duration of the tournament at the end of the day (or night’s) play. Get all the Victorian Open news delivered to your email inbox. Go to and enter your email into the Sign Up box.
Twitter: Updates as they happen of results involving key players, or things of interest happening during the tournament. Follow Bowls Victoria on Twitter to stay informed of everything that moves during the Vic Open.
Facebook: Morning and evening wraps of the day’s play, and interesting photos and video will be on Bowls Victoria’s Facebook page. For more regular in-the-moment updates, you should go to Twitter or our website.
Periscope: Watch out for live streaming via the Periscope app of some of the action. We’ll be doing “guerrilla coverage” of the event, streaming a couple of ends of matches when and where we can. All we need is a strong 4G signal, and enough bandwidth. You just need to get the app on your smartphone, follow Bowls Victoria, and you’ll be informed when we’re on air!
Instagram: We’ll be posting interesting pictures in and around the Vic Open on the Bowls Victoria Instagram feed. 
If you’re posting to social media, the 2015 Victorian Open hashtag is #2015VicOpen – yes, we thought it was sheer genius too 😉
Use the #2015VicOpen hashtag for anything to do with the event. Or if you’re at Shepparton Park BC, and you want to take a selfie with one of our Shepparton Cows – hashtag it #sheppcowselfie
Enjoy the biggest annual event in Victorian bowls! Whether you’re watching, visiting or playing, we hope you have a great time.
