Return to bowls guidelines

Following the Victorian State Government’s planned lifting of COVID-19 restrictions yesterday (Monday May 11) and after further discussion with Sport & Recreation Victoria, Vic Sport and Bowls Australia, the following information lists the measures to ensure that we can return the Bowling green from Tuesday May 12 at 11:59pm through to Sunday May 31 (pending further announcements from the State Government).

The sole priority at this point in time is to provide safe social opportunities to play Bowls. Bowls Vic want Bowlers to start to socially connect with others in small groups, practicing Bowls.

Bowls Victoria will continue to liaise with the Victorian State Government, Vicsport & Bowls Australia to provide specific advice for Bowlers for the month of June.

The below link provides information for:
- Clubs
- Practicing Bowls
- General (Around The Green) Hygiene
- Facility Use


This advice is general in nature and the COVID-19 situation is forever changing. Please keep an eye out on and the  Bowls Victoria Facebook Page for any further updates in regard to restrictions.

Until the Victorian Government releases a further update (estimated to be in early June 2020), these measures are for the foreseeable future, to keep Victorian Bowlers safe.

In the mean time, Bowls Victoria have been busy making content for people to keep involved in bowls at home:
