Roll up is a fun, fast six-week competition that’s running at bowls clubs around Victoria. 

Roll Up is a great after school sport that you can play with your friends – it’s also free to play!

Participants learn the rules of bowls and develop their skills through weekly club coaching to build confidence and a love for the sport. Coaching will run along side a 6 week competition hosted at a Roll Up Hub club. It’s a great way for kids to have fun with their friends and stay active.

Who can play?

Roll Up is suitable for boys and girls aged from 9 to 17. New and existing bowlers are welcome, however, no experience is necessary. Music, food and drinks are also provided on the day of competition, so if you’re looking for an fun afternoon activity, get your friends together and register a team!

Further opportunities 

Roll Up forms an important link in the playing pathway for juniors. Bowlers in the Roll Up program will have the opportunity to be part of Bowls Victoria’s U18 Development Squads, allowing juniors to further develop their skills with other keen young bowlers and have the chance to represent their state in professional competitions.
