Bowlers Arm tournament results 2015-16
Tournaments have been run all throughout the State for arm bowlers in 2015-16, with hundreds so far taking part in events specifically for a growing demographic in bowls.
“This demonstrates the reach and interest in Arm Specific events,“ according to BV Director Phil Gude, who co-ordinates arm bowling in Victoria.
“We are confident the growth of arm usage, now well over 6,000 in Victoria alone, will see these events get bigger each year as players seek to test themselves against other arm exponents.
“The season’s biggest tournaments occur after the Christmas break and BV will keep you up to date progressively as they occur, so watch this space for the latest reports and action in Arm Bowling Victoria.”
