Bowls Scotland Phase Two Holding Statement
Bowls Scotland welcome today’s announcement from the First Minister, which outlined a further easing in lockdown restrictions in Scotland that applies to Lawn Bowls.
As with phase one, we have been developing our own bowls specific phase two guidelines with the support of our District Secretaries, sportscotland and the Scottish Government. These will set out consistent guidance to allow our member clubs to prepare for the new easing in restrictions within phase two.
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. At this time, we are still operating in phase one and we would encourage all our clubs to make no further operational changes until our phase two guidance is released.
Our Guidance Document containing details of all the measures clubs and players must follow in phase two will be released as soon as possible once we have received ratification from sportscotland. This will take into account all the details within phase two that are applicable to our sport from the Scottish Government’s route map.
Bowls is a wonderful sport that has the opportunity 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.
