News Update February 2021

Following an announcement that British Isles Bowling Events for 2021 have been cancelled
Bowls England have issued the following statement :-
“It was with a heavy heart that we supported the decision to cancel all of these events,
however it is undoubtedly the right one. The concerns over travel and accommodation for
large numbers of people made this decision inevitable.
“Domestically we remain confident that, thanks to the rollout of the vaccine and our
experience from last season of bowling taking place in a Covid-friendly manner, people will
be out playing in England at an early date. We are still planning for a full competitive season
including national competitions and national championships, however we are working on a
number of contingencies should there be a need to delay the start date. The cancellation of the
British Isles events will provide opportunity for more flexibility in the calendar should the
need arise.
“We also recognise that it is important for us to provide opportunities for new people to try
our sport and enjoy its many physical and social benefits, and we are continuing work on our
first-ever National Open Weekend from Friday 28 th  to Monday 31 st  May. We were one of the
first sports to ‘open’ in 2020 and we will be working with clubs to help people get back to
bowls and welcome newcomers into our sport.”
Your club committee are also continuing to plan for the season with preparation of the fixture
list and the green but will have to wait until we have more detail from both central
government and then Bowls England before we can give you any real detail of how the
season will pan out.
I hope that you are all keeping safe and well and we will continue to update the web site with
any pertinent information.
