School Bowls

As one of Victoria’s most accessible sports, Bowls can be enjoyed by anyone regardless of age, gender, experience, or physical ability. 

Bowls Victoria works closely with schools, government and school sports associations to offer bowls as a sport option in schools around Victoria. Over 8,000 Victorian school-aged children engage in junior bowls programs each year.

Bowls is an excellent sport to run in a school environment due to its inclusiveness. It’s also a non-contact and low impact sport that is suitable for all ages and abilities. Bowls Victoria schools programs develop playing skills and game knowledge, together with offering playing opportunities with other schools around Victoria.
