VRI Bowls

The VRI Bowls Club plays regular games amongst it’s own members and other Clubs.  

The Club plays throughout the year, both summer and winter, and travel around playing at various Bowls Clubs in regular competitions. Members enter games they want to nominate for, and teams are selected each game, and change often.

It is a happy Club, with Members coming from all over Victoria and interstate to play at our games.

We look forward to welcoming new players to the Club and seeing you join in the fun of VRI Bowls at our games in the future.


It was Victoria's turn to host the 43rd ANZRI Intersystem Lawn Bowls Carnival at Moama from the 24th February to the 4thMarch 2020. This carnival is held every second year.

150 and people attended players and guest from New South Wales, Queensland, Western Australia, New Zealand and Victoria. The games were played between two venues the Rich River Bowls Club and the Moama Bowls Club.

Victoria came runner up in the Commissioners Shield second place for the overall competition. 

Victoria brought home the Kiwi Cup for runners up to the Commissioners Shield.

Paul Becroft (Victoria) won the Howse Cup the champion of champions trophy, Rippan Data came second (Victoria).

From the feedback for all the systems that attended they are saying it was one of the best carnivals they have attended and could not fault the venues. The next carnival will be held in New South Wales in 2022.

VRI BOWLS CLUB Annual Report 2020

Unfortunately, due to COVID19 the Bowls Club has not been able to partake in their annual trips away to play bowls which has been very disappointing for our members.

It is very sad that this year we lost a very valued member who worked tirelessly for the club Robert Philp (treasurer) known as Bob who was also a life member of the VRI his contribution to the club will be sadly missed.

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
