It is also important to note;

For the first time Bowls Tasmania will be holding official classification qualifying for all Bowlers with a Disability on Saturday 5th January prior to the State Championships commencing on Sunday 6th.  The classification process will be completed in 3 phases of classification (bench test, on green test and observation in competition).  Participants will then be issued a classification card and entered onto the International Database.  It will be compulsory for all Bowlers with a Disability to undergo this process to be eligible to compete in the Championships.

There will be discussion and explanation surrounding the classification process on the Get Together Day should you have any questions.


Bowls Tasmania are also pleased to announce the introduction of the inaugural State Disability Selection Panel.  Congratulations to the following people;

  • Bill Simkus (NW)
  • Alan Ryman (North)
