BowlsWales Covid-19 Update-14th July 2020
Following the First Minister’s announcements on Friday 10th July, BowlsWales welcomes the news below.
‘The Welsh Government is making changes to the regulations to allow larger gatherings of up to 30 people outdoors only where these are organised and supervised by a responsible person for sports and other leisure activities and classes.’
The number of people allowed on each rink is governed by current legislation and restrictions on adhering to social distancing. Outdoor group coaching sessions can now re-start safely whilst following the Welsh Government and Industry guidelines.
BowlsWales awaits the revised Welsh Government’s Coronavirus Regulations together with the Welsh Government’s updated guidance and will be working through the changes and updating our guidelines documents.
We ask if clubs can wait until we have updated our guidelines before acting upon the above.
Bowls Wales is the regulatory body for bowls in Wales and the statements above are taken from their web site today.
It is inferred that the ability of 30 people to join together in sport may not allow us to play with more than 6 people on a bowls green and further guidance is being sought.
As soon as there is any further clarification on the rules, we’ll let you know.
24th July 2020
Last Monday we learned that the Wales Government’s recent easing of the Covid-19 restrictions meant that we could allow up to 30 people on our bowls rink at any time, subject to certain conditions. The prime restriction is that the social distancing rules are unchanged at 2 metres.
Close behind comes the need to be able to track all those that may have come in contact with someone who has been to the club and is subsequently found to be carrying the virus. Our rink booking system can be used for this purpose in normal use. On Club nights we shall be using an attendance book.
We can also now offer coaching sessions and limited competitions,,,,so I think it’s opportune to re-introduce our Thursday Club Nights, starting Thursday 30th July. The plan is to offer coaching free of charge from 4 until 5 pm for anyone who wishes to participate and that means new, prospective or existing members. A couple of rinks will be kept free for that purpose.
From 5.00pm onwards, subject to how many turn up, we’ll organise a mini competition on one of the rinks and leave the other two free for teams of 2, or 3 a side to make use of the facility and get back some of the fun of playing team bowls rather than just the roll-ups that we have been playing until now.
SOCIAL DISTANCING RULES WILL APPLY AT ALL TIMES.
Going back to the coaching option, Alan Cording has said that he will be there and it would be good if one or more of our other qualified coaches could spare some time too if the time is suitable. Jeff Davies, Andy Dunn and Dennis Lee are qualified.
Please support the Club Night and I look forward to seeing you there.

We recently received a grant of £400 from [email protected]#BeActiveWalesFund, towards the cost of preparing the green to resume playing following the easing of lockdown measures. Thanks to @WelshGovernment and #NationalLottery players for their support.
