Fast Paced. Action Packed. The Best Playing the Best.
The SA Super League will be back to heat up the South Australia bowls scene this Winter with the competition set to launch again in August 2019.
Following the successful 2018 hosting which saw a firebrand competition with the Heysen Comets lifting the inaugural SA Super League champions trophy, the competition promises to be bigger and better in 2019.
The eight franchise teams will again return with some new players, new rules and a bigger and better atmosphere ready to excite the crowds. The mix between country, metropolitan, junior, male and female will ensure that representation from all pockets of the state showcases a unique and inclusive competition.
We are also excited to launch the Under 21 Super League in 2019. This will be a separate competition which will see the best junior bowlers from around the state represent the same franchise teams in their bid for Super League glory.
We are again pleased to have support from Lion Nathan, SportsCentre, The Advertiser and the City of Salisbury in the running of this competition
Keep your eyes on the SA Super League tabs for all of the latest news including coach announcements, player retainment’s, conditions of play updates and your opportunity put your name forward for the player draft. It promises to be an exciting SA Super League season.
The competition will be unlike any other event on the Bowls SA calendar, with 8 newly established state wide teams formed, and each affiliated bowling club in South Australia being aligned with one of these teams to act as feeder clubs. This serves the purpose of assisting country clubs or metropolitan clubs without a high grade pennant side, to retain their best available talent as the individual players can play in the best competition in the state, whilst being based out of their home club. To see a breakdown of which team each affiliated club is aligned to, please click here.
The competition is not only for the players but the spectator experience for anyone who loves the sport will be truly sensational. The game day experience will aim to replicate your other favourite sports providing a great atmosphere, food, beverages and opportunity get up close to the action to follow your local team!
In the interest of creating an even competition, there will also be a live player draft. This creates the opportunity for any registered member within South Australia who has aspirations of playing high level bowls to submit an application for the player draft where they will be considered for selection by any of the 8 teams.
