2017 HELLOWORLD UNDER-20 AND IVOR BURGE CHAMPS DRAW RELEASED

2017 HELLOWORLD UNDER-20 AND IVOR BURGE CHAMPS DRAW RELEASED

With just over a fortnight until the Helloworld Under-20 and Ivor Burge Championships tip off, the draws have been announced for all four men's and women's competitions.

Hosted in Bendigo from Sunday, February 12 until Saturday, February 18, 24 teams will compete in 83 games in both competitions and a Japanese side will travel over for the Ivor Burge men's tournament.

Group games will be played through Thursday before the Semi-Finals begin that morning and last until Friday with medal games scheduled for Saturday.

Last year saw the two Victorian Under-20 men's teams face off in the gold medal and in 2017, Victoria will tip off proceedings following the Opening Ceremony on February 12 with a clash against Queensland.

Japan will then open the Ivor Burge Championships when they face Tasmania while New South Wales have two chances to defend their 2016 title in the Ivor Burge women's Championship with a NSW Country and NSW Metro side in attendance this year.

Finally, in the afternoon of the first day of competition, we will see a replay of last year's Under-20's women's Grand Final as Victoria host South Australia.

Both the Under-20 and Ivor Burge Championships will be held at Bendigo Stadium, a seven court venue that also boasts multiple show-courts.
