Latest National Rankings for December released

by Domenic Favata

New South Wales pair Corey Wedlock and Genevieve Delves have maintained their mantles as the top-ranked Australian male and female bowlers respectively following the end of the 2019 calendar year.

The National Rankings System operates on a yearly rolling-points system, where all points accrued are retained for a 12-month period and are then discounted.

The rankings year concludes at the completion of the Australian Open (June), with the number one ranked male and female players earning the titles of Male and Female Bowlers of the Year and $3,000 prize purses each.

Players can accrue ranking points from all national events, State Championships, State Champion of Champion and selected club events.
