Dress Code 2022​

Bowls England has spent most of the ‘Covid months’ talking to County Associations, grass root bowls and club members, and carrying out various surveys of the general public, to try and establish a focussed route on how to attract new members.  It became clear from the answers that, generally, bowls is deemed ‘too stuffy’ regards to uniform rules and they have advised all clubs to consider their policies.   

We have already relaxed our dress code by allowing members to dress casual when ‘rolling-up’ and believe the time is right to allow casual dress for ‘Umbrella Club Nights’ as well.  Therefore, the Ashcombe’s Dress Code for 2022 is as follows:
