ARARAT VRI BOWLS CLUB - Annual Sports report 2020

Obviously with the Covid19 Restrictions and shut down, we did not have any club activities from early March onwards.

However, I am pleased to advise that Ararat VRI Bowls Club Men's Division 1 side did win the Grampians Divisions 1 premiership for the 2019/20 season this was a great achievement for a small club and 18 years since we won the last one.

In late 2019 we did install a new synthetic green to replace the old one which was about 14 years old. This itself was a great achievement and will hold us in good stead for another 14 to 15 years'.

The2019/20 Men's Club Singles Championship was won by Clayton Holcombe and the Ladies 2019/20 Club Singles Championship was won by Lorna Neil.

Overall, it was another great year for our Club and we are looking forward to the2020/21 season.


Murray Jensen, President, Ararat VRI Bowls

A big congratulations to Ararat VRI who won the 2019 grand final on Saturday breaking a 22 year drought! They are the champions and premiers.....go Ararat VRI!

Join the club

I would encourage everybody and anybody to join the VRI. It’s a community and family that have been welcoming to me and my family. There are so many benefits and activities to participate and socialise to meet new people. BILL MITREVSKI  VRI Member
