Be recognised as the best club at the Australian Open!
Is your club capable of claiming the interstate or local Champion Club Trophy? With the Australian Open fast approaching, there is now another reason for interstate and local clubs to get involved with the World’s Biggest Bowls Festival with the launch of the Champion Club Trophy, rewarding the most successful clubs at the event.
As a new feature in the event, Bowls Australia is pleased to announce the introduction of two Champion Club Trophies, which will see the best performed local and interstate clubs recognised for the performance of their members, and will be profiled by Bowls Australia following the event.
The most successful Bowls Queensland affiliated club at the Australian Open will win the Champion Club Trophy for Local Clubs, and the Trophy for Interstate Clubs will be given to one from outside the region.
Bowlers will now not only bowl for individual glory in the Singles or team success in the Pairs and Fours but also accumulate points for their club throughout each discipline.
The winning clubs will be crowned at the closing presentation and profiled by Bowls Australia through their video mediums following the conclusion of the event – what better way to show off the success of your members!
Points are available within all disciplines, including the Under 18 Singles, Bowlers with a Disability disciplines and the Over 60s Pairs, and are distributed from the early knockout rounds in most disciplines, so the more club members playing in the event, the more points the club is likely to score.
With a huge $250,000 total prize pool on offer and a guarantee of at least three sectional matches in most disciplines, the opportunity to contribute to your club’s success is just another reason for bowlers to enter the World’s Biggest Bowls Festival.
Last year, a record twenty-six Queenslanders made it to the final of an Australian Open discipline in their own backyard – making up over half of all finalists at the event – and thirteen were crowned as champions!
