The following guidance is taken from the Bowls England website. It should be borne in mind that these are guidelines only and could change at short notice depending on Government policy.
Lawn bowls as an outdoor sport may resume from Monday 29th March (Step 1), as part of the government’s roadmap to ease lockdown restrictions in England.
The return of sport and physical activity is vital to the physical and mental health of the nation, and we know our sport has a big role to play in providing an opportunity for outdoor activity as the lockdown restrictions ease.
The guidance we have developed below for our affiliated clubs supplements the Government guidance by covering situations specific to the sport of lawn bowls:

Earlier this week we shared share with you in full our revised domestic competitions programme for 2021, offering our competitive bowlers the opportunity to compete in a Covid-friendly manner.
To provide additional support to enable affiliated clubs open safely, we are working in collaboration with the Bowls Development Alliance (BDA), British Crown Green Bowling Association and Disability Bowls England to develop resources for affiliated clubs under the banner ‘Back to Bowls’.
Bowls’ Big Weekend, taking place over the Spring Bank Holiday of the 2021 season (Friday 28th to Monday 31st May), is our national initiative offering clubs the opportunity to promote our welcoming and socially-distanced sport and attract new members.
We can’t wait to see you all back on the green!
