Junior Events

Each year, Bowls Victoria run several junior events alongside bowls clubs around Victoria.

These events are an excellent way for players under the age of 18 to develop their playing skills and go head-to-head with other juniors from around the state.

The 2020 Doug Kneebone Tournament will be held on Sunday February 23rd at Darebin City Bowls Club – 281 Darebin Rd, Thornbury  3071. Hosted by Bowls Victoria, the 2020 Doug Kneebone will be a Junior Development Squad Tournament where teams are made up of 2 players, playing Singles and Pairs.
