BOWLS ENGLAND RESPONSE TO CORONAVIRUS 2020
Yorkshire Bowling Asociation
Bowls England has announced the cancellation of all its domestic events ahead of the 2020 lawn bowls season in response to the latest Government advice and growing concerns from bowlers about how the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak will impact lawn bowls.
The decision, which was reached at an Emergency Meeting of Board members and key staff, held on Tuesday 17th March, covers all National Championships, National Competitions and other domestic events. Discussions are ongoing with the British Isles Bowls Council and British Isles Women’s Bowls Council with regard to British Isles events this year.
The timing of the earlier rounds of the National Competitions means it is impractical for these to be completed this season. Your entry/entries will automatically roll over for the 2021 season unless you advise otherwise, by Tuesday 01st September 2020.
Bowls England will be providing support and advice to clubs and county associations over the coming weeks to ensure the future of the sport – including plans for a proposed ‘Festival of Bowls’ later in the season.
