Starting as the State Disability Championships in 2015 with three categories of deaf, intellectual and physical players the event expanded in 2016 to include a fourth category for vision impaired players.
Expansion again in 2017 the event added players using a bowling arm into the physical disability category. Both Bowling Arm and Physical Disability bowlers use the State Championships as a seeding event for selection into their respective State Representative Sides: The National Bowling Arm Sides Championships and the National Multi disability Lawn Bowl Championships (Multibowl).
In 2018 the event changed name to the State All Abilities Championships and added another category specifically for players with Bowling Arms.
2019 saw even more change with the Bowling Arm players separating from this event and participating in their own State Event, and the All Abilities Championships once more settled into having four categories:
- Deaf/Hearing Impaired Players
- Intellectual Disability Players
- Physical Disability Players
- Vision Impaired & Blind Players
