Ballarat District Bowls Division launches a new superdome series season at Sebastopol on Thursday night.
The six-week series has attracted 26 teams, which have been divided into four groups.
The series will culminate with finals in week six.
The off-season midweek competition was first launched in 2016 – made possible after the construction of a roof over a green at Sebastopol. Sixteen teams contested the inaugural season, which was played in April as a post-season event.
This year’s series acts as preparation for a new summer pennant competition.
