Holding Statement - 2021 National Competitions & Guidance

Bowls Scotland welcome yesterday’s Scottish Government announcement and the new details within the Strategic Framework which outlines the nations easing out of lockdown.

This was undoubtedly positive news for our sport as bowlers will be able to get back out on the green, at their club, for the season beginning next month. We are now working with sportscotland and the Scottish Government to finalise our comprehensive Return to the Green COVID-19 guidance for clubs. 

We are confident that we will be able to publish guidance and resources at the start of next week. In addition, this information allows us to refine our competition scenario planning and the Bowls Scotland Board of Directors will meet tomorrow evening to make a final decision on the competitive season. It is our intention to inform clubs of this by the end of this week.

In the meantime, please continue to stay safe and adhere to the current guidelines in place.
