UBC Challengers' Registration
Are you interested in playing in the UBC in 2020?
There will be a one-day, action-packed qualifying event prior to each Ultimate Bowls Championship (UBC) event in 2020. This gives anyone the opportunity to play in a competition under the same rules and format as the UBC (as seen on TV!). The winning team from each qualifying event will gain entry into the prestigious field for the main UBC event later in the week at the same venue.
UBC Qualifying Event One – Tuesday March 31st 2020
Deer Park Club
A: 780 Ballarat Road, Deer Park, VIC 3023 (approx. 15 min drive from Melbourne Airport)
P: (03) 9363 1030

UBC Qualifying Event Three – Tuesday December 8th 2020 at the Moama Bowling Club - Registrations open August 2020
The field size is limited to the first 24 teams to enter. This is on a first in, first served basis. The UBC event management team will randomly draw three sections of eight teams, which will give every team the opportunity to play a minimum of seven matches during the event. The top two from each section and the next best two overall will proceed to the knock-out quarterfinals. The event will be a full day affair (early start and late finish).
1st prize is entry into the UBC main event which is commencing the next day (5 pm) at that the same venue.
Note: the format is subject to change depending on final team entry numbers.

Bowlers from anywhere in the world are eligible to enter our UBC Qualifying competition. All you need to do is find two other players and submit your team entry below.
