THE 2017 season of Phillip Island Tenpin and Entertainment Centre’s Bowlopolis League was run and won in great style, with the culmination being a celebration gala day.
The season saw over 66 athletes bowling in the competition with teams from Bass Coast Specialist School, Connecting Skills Australia, Yooralla, SCOPE and Interchange Gippsland.
The league was run as a phantom league, meaning that teams could bowl at any time throughout the week.
Scores were totalled and a ladder was kept once all the weekly scores are in.
The gala day brought all the teams together to play for the Bowlopolis league trophy.
In a very tight tussle, with a very high standard of play the team from SCOPE San Remo, were the 2017 champions again.
Many individual awards were presented on the day for the top three bowlers from each organisation and some encouragement awards for those showing great leadership.
Phillip Island Tenpin Bowling and Entertainment Centre have run the league for the last six years with the support from GippSport, the South Coast Access Alliance and the Lions
Club Wonthaggi.
GippSport Program Coordinator Gene Parini highlighted the great success of the program
“The atmosphere at the Gala Day was just fantastic, not only are the athletes improving their skill level each season but there is a real sense of helping each other and having a laugh.”
“The league will look to get going again in July 2018 but I’m sure there will be some keen athletes sneaking in some pre-season training in-between.”
