Sixty of the state’s best bowlers converged on the greens of Ocean Grove Bowling Club to battle South Australia in one of the first interstate series to be held here.
Bowls coach and co-ordinator at the club Matt Flapper said the series provided a great opportunity for people to see bowling at its best and although it was a “very tight” series for the men’s team, Victoria was ultimately victorious with a 3-2 win in the series.
For the Victorian women’s team, it was a clean sweep with a 5-0 win in the series.
The men were the winners of the Loy-Carroll trophy and the women won the Mulga Cup.
“It was a terrific event with both teams playing really well, and you could say celebrations did go long into the night,” Matt said.
