Bowls Victoria have a Disciplinary Committee which can advise members of their rights and entitlements in matters where they have been subjected to physical assault or other inappropriate behaviour from another member of this or any other bowls club.

Please note, our Board of Management may take action in relation to any incident of physical assault or any other physical or verbally inappropriate behaviour by a member upon another member, but only where an official complaint is made in writing to the board.

Even in those circumstances the board decide to take action, their scope is very limited.
