Club Affiliation Fees


Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation the Bowls Victoria Board has decided to continue the Club Based Affiliation model for a further year without change.

As a result, on June 5th 2020 the BV Board resolved the following to assist clubs with regard to fees for the upcoming season (2020/21):
  • No CPI increase: Fees for 2020/21 will be as they were in 2019/20 with no CPI increase and therefore rescind the previous resolution of the 1.5% increase from March 2020 (pre-Covid);
  • Increase the terms of payment from 60 days to 120 days to allow for more income generation by clubs
  • Increase the deadline for Financial Relief applications by 30 days to 31 October (see details on how to apply here).
  • Increase the pool of funds available for Financial Relief; and
  • BV will continue to seek further assistance from State Government/Federal Government.
Please also make sure your club is working with your Local Government for relief on rates/rent during the closure. Your club should also apply for all potential government funding initiatives currently available:

Bowls Victoria has not reverted to a per capita model. It remains a Club Based Affiliation Fee Model.

The CBA Fee Model was originally discussed at the 2016-17 Region meetings, however, there still appears to be a need for explanation and clarification.

The Bowls Victoria Board spent many hours looking at different scenarios to determine a “fair and equitable” basis. More than 35 scenarios with differing permutations and combinations were calculated, analysed and compared on an individual Club by Club basis.
