Request for confirmation of 2021 teams

- by Terry Stratton

The league secretary recently sent the following to all club secretaries

“Following Boris’s recent announcement regarding the road map out of lockdown the League are awaiting guidance from the National Governing Bowls bodies, who themselves are seeking Government clarification on a number of aspects.

Whilst we await that guidance, Tony Coe (Fixture Secretary) would be grateful if all clubs could email him confirmation (re-confirmation) of their team (not player) registrations by Tuesday 23 March. Hopefully in the light of the recent Government pronouncements and the rollout of the vaccination program Clubs will, by then, be in a better situation to determine their membership strength and appetite to play League bowls this season. This will help Tony ensure that he doesn’t have to undertake any major rescheduling of the divisions after the fixtures have been released.”

Currently, we are waiting for definitive guidance from the Government, as well as the National Bowls bodies (Bowls England & EBF), before rolling out this season’s details.

 The League has everything is in place for a return to a full season’s programme, but until we get any further news, we are withholding everything in case there are any restrictions to address. As soon as we get the “all clear” we will be contacting all the clubs immediately.

 One decision we have made is that there will be no entry fees for the Leagues, Knock-out competitions or Player registrations this year.  The League is keen for clubs to be able generate and retain much needed funds following last season’s restrictions.
