2019/20 Metropolitan Pennant Season Wraps Up
Following last week’s COVID-19 advice from Bowls Victoria regarding postponed events due to hotspots located in Metropolitan Melbourne, we wish to notify to all Metropolitan Pennant Clubs due to play 2019/20 Divisional Finals, that all Divisional Finals will now be cancelled.
This includes all Midweek Metropolitan Pennant (Division 1 through to Division 5 and 6-a-side) and Weekend Metropolitan Pennant (Division 1 through to Division 7 and 6-a-side).
All of the above competitions will have no Divisional Champion for Season 2019/20.
The Premier Division matches scheduled for August, will also be cancelled, with the Premier Division Title being awarded to Bundoora RSL based upon:
- Being the Minor Premiers
- Being the only team in the Grand Final as the competition ceased in March 2020; and
- Having a winning head-to-head record against the remaining opponents (Deer Park 2-1, Altona 2-0)
Bowls Victoria congratulates Bundoora RSL on a remarkable season and a fantastic, if not unusual Premiership!
The next Metropolitan Pennant matches will be the commencement of the 2020/21 Season on the anticipated date of Saturday September 26, 2020.
Bowls Victoria will continue to monitor the COVID-19 hotspots situation and provide an update to clubs and members at the end of July, as we progress towards next season’s competition.
