English Bowling Federation - Corona virus Statement.     Please read all information below



The English Bowling Federation has announced the cancellation of all County games and Competitions for the 2020 season.

The Durham Centenary competition will be carried forward to 2021. Their report states:


“To be able to achieve the National Finals at Skegness, Counties would have to start playing their competitions in early May, but with advice coming from the Government it looks impossible for games to start that early.

We have been inundated with calls and emails from bowlers, who have concerns about playing with the Corona virus doing its rounds.

It is hoped that our members will continue to support their County and  clubs and be ready to play when we are given the all clear to resume.

Although we will not be playing the 2020 National Outdoor Championships it is hoped that we will still be able to play the Indoor National finals at Newark in September.

With all the uncertainty we have also decided to cancel the Reg.Jackson tournament, anyone with an entry will be carried forward to the 2021 competition.

We are very sorry we have had to take this stance, but the health and safety of our members is more important than the game of bowls.”

The Stowmarket League - All League matches and Inter-League competitions for 2020 have been cancelled  

Bury and District League - All competitions, leagues and special events have been cancelled indefinitely.

Area D Triples League - Knockout Cup and League matches for 2020 have been cancelled
