Heads Up – 2 February 2018

Victorian Junior Bowls Classic

The future of Victorian bowls is in safe hands if the Sportscover Victorian Junior Bowls Classic held at Churchill-Waverley Bowls Club is any indication. Thirty-six Under 18 bowlers competed – the youngest aged just 10 – in an event becoming an important part of the fast-growing Victorian junior bowls calendar. Play was nine ends of Two Bowl Triples, with a short, sharp five-end final. Several matches, including the final, were live-streamed, and you can watch replays of all those matches by clicking below.

Bowls legend plays 700th Pennant match

Legend is an often overused word.

Not for Bendigo East Bowling Club’s Ken Gloster – a bowler, administrator, and all-round good guy who’s provided superb service to the sport.

The Bendigo Advertiser has done an outstanding series of stories and a video piece on Ken’s 700th Pennant match milestone, and his life spent in bowls. It’s well worth a look.
