Understanding BowlsLink

BowlsLink is more than just a membership database, it is also the first purpose-built competition management system our sport has ever had. It allows Club Administrators (most likely your Club Secretary) to manage:

  • Club information
  • Individual Member data
  • Competition entry, eg: Pennant, Club Championships, Tournaments, etc.
  • Competition results
  • Club website
  • Email campaigns
  • Invoicing

In addition, your individual members can manage their own profile and enter events like your Club events or even State events like the Victorian Open, directly via BowlsLink.
