Latest National Rankings for May released

The latest National Rankings for May have been released with a flurry of changes given the deduction of ranking points from last year’s Australian Open (AO). 

Players now know where they are situated heading into the World’s Richest Bowls Festival, which gets underway on June 9 on the Gold Coast. 

The rankings released following the AO will complete the 2017 calendar year.

The National Rankings System operates on a yearly rolling-points system, where all points accrued are retained for a twelve-month period and are then discounted.

The rankings year concludes at the completion of the Australian Open in June 2018, with the number one ranked male and female players earning the titles of Male and Female Bowlers of the Year and $3,000 prize purses each.

Players can accrue ranking points from all national events, State Championships, State Champion of Champion and selected club events.
