Club Australian Pairs League

In autumn 2014, in response to a membership need for more competitive bowls, the club introduced an internal league in Australian Pairs format.
Over a period of several months, each entered pair plays every other entered pair once.
Points (2 for a win, 1 each for a draw) are awarded and a league table maintained, based on total points won and shot difference.

The initial competition proved very popular and has now become a regular annual competition.

With steadily increasing participation, various structural changes have been tried.
For the 2019-20 season, it is required that each pair should be mixed - i.e. one female player + one male player,
and two separate leagues will be run -
  • AP7 (September 2019 to March 2020), with 14 competing pairs, and
  • AP8, (January 2020 to March 2020) with 6 pairs unable to play in the earlier period.
For detailed information on the 2019-20 leagues, see
A list of winners and runners-up for previous tournaments can be found via the Club Honours Board.
