New Event | Victorian Bowls League (VBL)

by Team BV


Bowls Victoria is excited to be launching our very own state Victorian Bowls League (VBL), an event that has been quite some time in the making, but it’s finally here!

“For years we’ve had talented players all across Victoria, but it’s rare that they get the chance to play against each other, particularly regional teams getting the chance to play metropolitan teams”, said Bowls Victoria CEO Tony Sherwill. “The VBL is a truly state-wide competition and it’s fantastic to see teams from the north, south, east and west of our state coming on board”.

One of the goals of adding this new event to the Victorian bowls calendar is to provide an opportunity for Victorian bowlers to enter and compete against the best in the state and country. With this year’s event being held in the lead-up to the traditional summer season, we aim to reignite interest in bowls during the traditional dormant winter. It will also provide BV with a streaming product to grow engagement in Victorian Bowls, with corporate sponsorship opportunities also available. In addition, our Victorian State Coach and Selectors will be looking on keenly to see how our players fare in the event.  

“It’s great to see our stronger clubs backing the VBL and supporting this bold new competition, said Sherwill, “and one thing I’m really pleased to see is a female-only team, which will showcase the talent we have both here and from interstate. I have every confidence they’ll prove that our sport is the most inclusive sport people can play”.

We can’t wait to bring this new event to our bowls community next month.
