Update of the County Competitions for 2021 has arisen due to changes issued by Bowls England for the 2021 competition season, and the compliance of the Government Roadmap (Covid) restrictions.
Bowls England - has issued instructions to County Bowling Associations that for 2021 there is to be a CHANGE in FORMAT for some of the Championship Competitions for both Men & Women.
Ø 2-Wood & 4-Wood Singles & U25 Singles = no change
Ø FOURS = 2 woods and 15 ends
Ø O55 FOURS = 2 woods and 15 endds
Ø TRIPLES = 2 woods and 18 ends
Ø PAIRS = 3 woods and 18 ends
Ø U25 PAIRS = 3 woods and 18 ends
(Trial ends for the above comps. are not affected)
Further changes to the County Schedules for Men's/Mixed and Women's competitions, to comply with the Roadmap restrictions, are summarised as follows:-
The Men's Competition sequence for 2021 has been changed
FROM – Fours, Pairs, Triples
TO - Triples, Pairs, Fours.
(This to comply with the 'Rule of 6' (outside) and gatherings of a max. of 30 bowlers).
The Men's O55 Fours has been moved back to late June/early July to conform to the
Rule of 6, and the Exec Triples Comp has been brought forward from July to June.
The Women's Fours dates have been put back to comply with Roadmap restrictions.
Women's O55 Fours are already being played in July.
There are some minor changes to some dates for domestic competitions.
The Men's 2-wood singles play-offs on Sun 6th June will go ahead as planned as the
timetable for players to arrive for their games will ensure that we remain within the guidelines of a maximum of 30 players outside at any one time. Players who have been knocked out may not be allowed to stay on to spectate because of numbers – PLEASE do not take offence if you are asked to leave after you lose a match – we need to stay within the Rules.
The Finals for most of the Championship Competitions are still expected to be held at Express BC - on Sunday 25th July or Sunday 1st August.
Ladies Finals will be at KBC 31 July 1 Aug
Notification of the County Qualifiers for the Nationals has now to be made by the County by August 16th and Leamington Nationals will now run from Sat 21st Aug to Sun 5th Sept.
* Domestic Competitions are NOT AFFECTED by the Format Changes below – and will run as normal *
