Please note Bowls Vic. Regulations were amended on the 4 Sep ’20 in regard to Equal Opportunity: Members shall abide by the Victorian Equal Opportunity Act 2010 which makes any discrimination in the sport of Bowls against the law. Equal opportunity must be offered in the provision of events and also in the opportunity to play in events.

Bowls Victoria Regulations September 2020 -Page 18. All single gender Championship events (Club and State) must be conducted concurrently where possible. If this is not possible due to facility limitations, events must be conducted in a manner that affords both genders equal opportunity. If one gender is given the opportunity to play on a weekend, the same opportunity must be afforded to the opposite gender if circumstances require. Flexibility and understanding are required by all members. (Clause 8 1 (c))
