Australia is a ranked number one in world bowls and produced a strong performance in line with expectations at the benchmark event in 2013. The team is considered to be on track to meet its performance targets at the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games. The focus of the high performance program continues to be on developing individual athlete plans, monitoring and exploring technological advancements to keep their world number one status.

Bowls Australia (BA) has made a number of positive changes to its governance and is proactive in its discussions with stakeholders as it seeks greater alignment with the ASC’s mandatory governance principles. A new strategic plan was released in late 2013 with support from all state associations.

BA has implemented and executed a successful participation strategy. Regular participation has increased however, the decline in full active members remains a concern. BA is responding by diversifying its product offering in an attempt to attract new members.
