The Victorian Open is Bowls Victoria’s premier state tournament and the largest bowls event in Victoria. Since its inception in 2011, the event has become a popular playing destination for both professional and grassroots bowlers.
For the first time since its inauguration the 2020 event has regrettably been cancelled due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation.
The Victorian Open will be back in 2021.
The event provides a unique opportunity for every level of bowler to challenge themselves and their fellow competitors in a professional environment. Close to 3,000 domestic and international bowlers contest the eight-day event over four disciplines: Singles, Pairs, Triples and Mixed Pairs.
The Victorian Open is open to men and women who play for a slice of a $50,000 prize-purse. As well as the seven titles up for grabs, the Vic Medal is also awarded to the best-performed bowler of the tournament who accumulates the most points across the event’s four disciplines.
The Victorian Open is open to all bowlers affiliated with a State or Territory Association that is affiliated to Bowls Australia, or affiliated to an international body that is a member of World Bowls. There is no pre-qualification and entry is open to bowlers from anywhere around the world.
The Victorian Open is a Bowls Australia ranked event.
We look forward to seeing you in 2021.
