V&D Women's Events

For decades the women bowlers in Metro Vancouver formed the Dogwood Ladies Lawn Bowling Association.  When the men's and women's associations amalgamated, the women joined the V&DBA.  The women have the same events the men have with a few variations:

  • the women divide their 'semi-ready' singles into Novice (1st year) and Sophomore (2nd and 3rd year)
  • the women do not have any senior events.  At one time there was the Senior Women's Triples, but this event died due to lack of interest.

V&D Women's Singles Champions

The V&D Women's Singles has seen some top bowlers compete and win this prestigious event.  Until recently the event was a straight knock-out with all games being full length.  In 2011 and 2012 the games have been shortened to 15 points and there are qualifying games leading up to a play-off.  For the past six years the event has been held at Kerrisdale.

Champion of Champions Women's Singles

For many years the V&D oversaw this tournament which was open to all women's club singles champions. It was a straight knock-out tournament. There was no entry fee, since the participants had earned their way into the event. The trophy was a solid silver bowl. The event was suspended due to lack of participation; some clubs had trouble finishing their own singles, some champions were unwilling or unable to participate and not even the runner-up was allowed to substitute. The trophy currently resides at Granville Park, one of whose members won the trophy more than anyone else.
