Secondary Schools Cup
BQ’s Secondary Schools Cup will be played across Queensland in 2022 with winners advancing through their local school and bowls club to a district play off. District winners advance to the State Finals on Wednesday and Thursday August 24-25 at Club Pine Rivers in Brisbane.
Teams will consist of Pairs (two girls, two boys or a mixed team). Both players must attend the same recognised Secondary School. Students must not have turned 19 on or before December 31, 2022.
At least one student per team must be a non-registered player (not a member of a bowls club). An exception will be made if the non-registered team member joins a bowls club and becomes a registered member during the course of this competition. Secondary Schools and bowls clubs are encouraged to align together to host an intra-school playoff to be completed by June 24. The winner will then proceed to an interschool bowls district play off to be completed by July 22. One winning team from each bowls district will then advance to the State Finals on August 24-25. Travel over a certain distance, accommodation and meals at the event will be covered for State Finals.
It is recommended for clubs and schools to organise a coaching program for the students prior to the competition, followed by the number of weeks needed to conduct the competitions to gain a club or school representative team.
Regional Bowls Managers (RBMs) will be available to assist clubs and schools with co-ordinating their local and district playoffs. Contact your local RBM (details below) or Bowls Queensland for more information and or to register.
