2017 School Sport Victoria Primary & Secondary State Final Preview!

by Team BV

The teams are set for this Wednesday’s annual School Sport Victoria (SSV) Primary & Secondary State Bowls Finals at Darebin City Bowling Club.
In the lead-up to the event, 21 School Sport Victoria Regional & Divisional Events were held around the State, with some new Bowls Clubs signing up to get involved with our School Sport Programs.
For the first time, the Primary School SSV Competition will have representatives across the whole state, after seven of the eight SSV regions had regional bowls finals in the months of March & April.
Teams will play three games in their Pool, followed by the State Final involving teams that top the Pool A & Pool B competitions. The Eastern Metro Region School, Wattleview Primary headline the teams involved, as they aim to go for a three-peat in 2017!
The Primary competition will begin at 10:30am at Darebin City Bowling Club on Wednesday 3rd of May. For more information, please visit the School Sport Victoria website here: SSV Primary Event Details
