Bowls Scotland Phase Three Holding Statement
Bowls Scotland welcome today’s announcement from the First Minister, which outlined a further easing in lockdown restrictions in Scotland. Some of the restrictions eased within Phase Three apply to sporting activity including Lawn Bowls.
We have continued to liaise our District Secretaries, sportscotland and the Scottish Government whilst developing our own Bowls specific Phase Three guidelines. These will set out consistent guidance to allow our member clubs to prepare for the new easing in restrictions within Phase Three.
We would like to remind all our clubs that public health remains the number one priority and we all have a collective responsibility to continue to reduce the spread of the virus.
Our Guidance Document containing details of all the measures clubs and players must follow in Phase Three will be released tomorrow once we have received ratification from sportscotland. This will take into account all the details within Phase Three that are applicable to our sport from the Scottish Government’s route map.
Bowls is a wonderful sport that has the ability to assist with people’s physical activity and mental wellbeing. We look forward to even more of our members being able to get back on to the bowling green in a restricted capacity within this next phase.
