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.

Be with like minded people I'd never played bowls before but I'm so happy I gave it a go. I've met so many new people and had a lot of laughs along the way - Pam Graham VRI Member
