Competitive Bowling at APBC

During the summer season Albert Park Bowls Club competes against other clubs in both the Weekend and Midweek Pennant competitions organised by Bowls Victoria. In the off season club sides compete in Winter Pennant and other league competitions. The club also organises its own pairs and singles leagues exclusively for members.

Fixture lists and other helpful information for the 2021/22 pennant season can be found below:


Throughout the year there are also Tournaments organised either for club members or for invited teams including those from other clubs. Members can also sign up for the annual Club Championships.

Bowls Victoria Pennant

Bowls Victoria organizes several leagues where sides compete for a seasonal pennant. Weekend Pennant generally comprises 4 rinks of 2 bowl fours and APBC currently has three sides in that competition. Midweek Pennant comprises 3 rinks of 2 bowl fours, in which we have two sides entered. The innovative Thursday Pennant is 7-a-side playing two rinks of 3 bowl pairs and one rink of 2 bowl triples - we have one side in that competition. Below are links to more information on each. In addition, when there are more midweek players available than required, Midweek Bankers matches are organized, which are open to all members with an interest in competitive bowling.



Twilight League

On Wednesday evenings the Twilight League is run for experienced and improving bowlers looking for a keenly competitive game of bowls. Participants each week are typically organized into pairs and gain points from matches played during the season. Modest quarterly and end of season prizes add a little interest to the results. A 'gold coin' new bowlers event may be run alongside the twilight league if demand exists.

Winter Pennant

Winter Pennant comprises a short season from late April to early July. This is the ideal way for bowlers to maintain or hone their skills during the off season. They will also enjoy match formats that differ from the pennant standard 2 bowl fours. Albert Park BC typically enters 3 or 4 sides into this competition.
