Bowls Scotland Return to the Green COVID-19 Guidance 2021

We were delighted to share our sportscotland approved COVID Return to the Green Guidance for the 2021 season with our affiliated clubs this week. Now that clubs have had time to digest the information, we have published the full guidance and resources on our website here:

Our Return to the Green Guidance includes:-

  • Bowls Scotland Getting Back on the Green COVID-19 Guidance
  • Bowls Scotland Getting Back on the Green Appendix 1: Level 4 Stay Local
  • Bowls Scotland Getting Back on the Green Overview Summary
  • Bowls Scotland COVID Resources

Thank you for being patient and understanding while we finalised our guidance. There is a process we need to follow to ensure our guidance is in line with Scottish Government guidance on sport and physical activity and this can sometimes take a bit of time. 

COVID Officer Guidance Sessions:-

To help clubs with any questions or queries about the COVID guidance or just to share good practice and talk to fellow clubs, we are offering a series of COVID Officer sessions, outlined below. Clubs have received links to these sessions via email and we would encourage COVID Officers to book on as quickly as they can as these sessions are already proving popular.

  • Tuesday 13th April, 11.00am – 12.00noon   
  • Tuesday 13th April, 2.00pm – 3.00pm  
  • Wednesday 14th April, 2pm – 3pm

A reminder that COVID Officer e-learning is available to all clubs, it takes 10 minutes to complete and is free. This training has been developed by sportscotland and we would encourage any of your committee members and volunteers to complete the e-learning.
