The 2019 NSW State Pennant Grade One competition structure has been released today. Fifty-nine (59) clubs will be competing for the coveted John Young Shield in what will be a tightly contested competition. The structure of the competition is listed below, outlining the six (6) conferences and the fifty-nine (59) clubs that make up each conference. The qualifying positions allocated to competing in the State Finals are also listed below. This year’s finals will be hosted at Forster Bowling Club and we look forward to having all clubs competing at one venue for the State Finals.
Draws will be released for the Far North Coast, Northern, Central Coast, Southern and Sydney Metro competitions. A live draw of the two sections for the Hunter/Newcastle conference will be conducted at approximately 12:45pm today as it is the only Conference with this requirement.
