Bowls England circulated headline information to clubs and county associations in August to assist you with the initial administration of affiliation fees and National Championship entries for the 2021 season.

This early notification of the key decisions was designed to enable clubs and county associations to plan accordingly for the 2021 season. A full reminder of these is included at Appendix A but headlines were:

  • No affiliation fees to be collected on 30th September 2020;
  • Affiliation fees for 2021 to be based on playing members at affiliated clubs as at 1st May 2021;
  • Entries in National Championships and National Competitions to be accepted from any individual that will be a member of a club affiliated to Bowls England on 1st May 2021;
  • The closing date for return of National Championship entries and National Competitions to Bowls England to be 1st March 2021

We promised a further update on some of the finer detail and pleased to provide this in the form of a ‘Frequently Asked Questions’ in light of correspondence received since our preliminary announcement.
