Pennant is a league format of bowls played at clubs across Australia.
Each week, 24 clubs and close to 1500 players go head-to-head in various divisions around Ballarat and surrounds. The 18-week season runs from October to March each year and comprises of Saturday (1pm rollup for 1:15pm start) and Monday (10am rollup for 10:15am start) competitions.

The Premier Division winner and Division One winner progress to Champion of State Pennant, which is contested at Moama Bowls Club in May each year which sees Metro and Regional winners gather to vie for the prestigious state title.
