Coronavirus Update – BE Meeting: Cancellation of Events

Back to news

Further to my earlier post it appears that Bowls England had an emergency meeting yesterday (not Thursday as initially indicated). 

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.

The full statement can be found here

Bowls Northumberland will provide a further update in the coming days once they have met and established these facts.
