The Vic 150 is one of the more unique events on the ranked event calendar and will kick off the women’s division season this weekend at Zone Bowling Frankston in Victoria.
Bowled in conjunction with the Australian Open, the Vic150 has two divisions – scratch and graded.
After qualifying, the top 12 of each division advance to the matchplay finals. It is at this stage that the event showcases its uniqueness by pairing both divisions together to form teams of two.
Victorians Rebekah Martin and Lisa Gaylor will both return this year to defend their 2021 title and the ever-dangerous Rebecca Whiting will look to claim Vic 150 title number five.
In what will be the first women’s division ranked event for the year, bowlers will be keen to hit the lanes and give it their all!
We wish all bowlers the best of luck and high scoring over the easter weekend.
