If you’re a lover of bowls or interested in watching the sport, the Henselite Victorian Open is your answer!
Even if you don’t know much about bowls, the event will provide a fun community atmosphere for all to enjoy.
The Henselite Victorian Open is Bowls Victoria’s premier state event. It’s the largest bowls event in Victoria and second largest in the country.
Since its inception in 2011, the event has become hugely popular for both professional and grassroots bowlers.
The Gippsland region will offer bowlers a range of different surfaces to bowl on, at a time of year when the greens will be at their best.
Events are played at various venues throughout Gippsland, with Traralgon and Morwell Bowling Clubs acting as the major hubs and finals venues.
Competition categories include mixed pairs, pairs, and men’s and women’s singles and triples. The finals will take place on 27 and 28 March.
Mayor of Latrobe City Council, Councillor Darren Howe, said Council is looking forward to welcoming competitors to the region and hope that they have time to explore all Latrobe City has to offer.
“Major events like these also offer a great boost to the local economy and are an important tourism-driver for the region. The economic impact this event brings to Latrobe City is up to 3.1 million,” said the Mayor.
“We are excited to showcase the state-of-the-art bowls venues in Latrobe City during the event. Traralgon and Morwell Bowls clubs are impressive venues with impeccable greens and newly refurbished function spaces.
“The Henselite Victorian Open is open to bowlers of all ages and abilities. We look forward to welcoming participants from right across Australia and internationally, to participate in this iconic event.”
