2023 & 2024 EVENT REVIEW 🔍

Bowls Victoria undertook an extensive Event Review in June 2022 with Sports Business Partners (now Solucio).

General recommendations were made for all state events, including event specific recommendations. 

Recommended changes to the Region Sides Championships were the following: 

  • Align into Pathway Program better, in both selection and calendar placement 
  • Pilot groups that enable like-for-like competition
  • Introduce consistent selection process across all regions

2023 CHANGES

  • Move to a tiered Gold and Silver system, using rankings from previous 2 events to determine placings. 8 sides per tier
  • Top 2 sides in Gold to playoff for the Region Sides Title
  • Bottom 2 sides from Gold playoff against top 2 sides from Silver for a spot in the Gold sections in the 2024 event (8th Gold vs 1st Silver, 7th Gold vs 2nd Silver) 
  • Due to most regions having booked accommodation, the May dates and 3 day event schedule will remain

2024 CHANGES

  • Event to move to 2nd Saturday in January and reduce to 2 days – Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th of January
  • Gold and Silver tiers remain
  • 2 x sections of 4 within the tiers, based off performance in 2023 event 
  • 3 sectional games on the Saturday
