Bowls England

Break down of Bowls England Covid Recommendations.

Just a simple reminder that Covid rules still apply, for our club the following simple steps should be taken.


The key Step 2 changes appear to be:

  • Outside hospitality is OK.

  • Toilets can be used. If you enter the clubhouse then masks should be worn.

  • Changing rooms can open (but care with social distancing only 3 players at a tiime)

  • The overall maximum of players should average no more than 4 per legally sized rink.

(6 legal rinks on a green =  maximum 24 players playing in any combination of pairs/triples/fours)

  • Triples and fours can be played without a gap in between.

  • Spectators are not permitted.

  • Car travel is allowed to away fixtures but car sharing is not permitted.



In respect of competitive matches the following statement applies:

To clarify the SBA’s current position:

  • Men’s League matches cancelled until Step 4.

  • Inter-County matches cancelled until Step 4.

  • County Championships & Competitions will be played under the new BE formats. The draws are available to view on our website.

  • Inter-County competitions (Johns/Middleton etc) will be played on a knockout basis. We await the draws.
