From 1st July 2021, a new process for members transferring from one club to another was introduced. This process will moved online via BowlsLink. The fee was reduced to $20 per transfer, payable by the club receiving the player. Clubs receiving a player will initiate the transfer, before it is approved by the club with the player departing, and BV will authorise the transfer once both clubs have completed this process.

The cut off date for all clearances/transfers is 31st December. After this point, clearances/transfers will resume from 1st April.

For more information about clearances, please refer to the Bowls Victoria Clearance Guidelines document:


Training webinars can be found below, as well as a ‘how-to’ guide.
