Latest Indoor news

Following the Prime Minister's statement last week and after speaking with the Department of Culture, Media and Sport, we are now advised that unfortunately Indoor Bowls Clubs will remain closed for the foreseeable future.
With the indoors closed until at least August and when they do open there will be many restrictions including social distancing, we have decided to postpone the Indoor National Championships that were due to be held in September at Newark.
The finals hopefully, will now be played Monday 19th to Sunday 25th April 2021. This means that no finals either indoor or outdoor will be played in 2020.
For the Indoor it is intended that anyone qualifying for the 2020 finals will automatically be put forward to play in April 2021 finals, including the Derbyshire Trophy. We still have around 7 Counties still to play their County Finals; these should be able to take place before the end of this year, giving us time to decide the format for Newark 2021.


Latest Statement by EBF.
Further updates on playing Bowls received from the Government.
Following on from the Government opening more measures.
The Government guidance now allows clubs to consider alternative formats with reduced numbers per rink – for example singles and pairs – in order for social distancing to be more easily maintained. Rinks of 3 would be allowed but you must have procedures in place to maintain social distancing.
Clubs may wish to allow spectators, however their attendance must be in line with Government guidelines on social distancing and the ability of the club to accommodate the additional numbers
Bowls clubs will need to communicate clearly and regularly with members and participants setting out what they are doing to manage risk, and what advice they are giving to individuals to do likewise.
Ideally clubs should publish an action plan detailing their plans to re-open safely and the steps they are taking to avoid confusion.
Clubs should also communicate clearly opening times and how people can safely access a facility, if relevant, for example through a booking or queuing system.
It is more important than ever to consider inclusive guidance for people who need support to be active and organisations should consider this as part of their work to encourage people to return.
The government is clear that sports participation should be restricted to participants exercising by themselves, with members from their same household, or in a group of no more than 5 other people from other households, while observing social distancing guidelines. The police have been given powers to enforce these measures.
To help everyone maintain good hygiene, consideration should be given to:
Using signs and posters to build awareness of good handwashing technique, the need to increase handwashing frequency, avoid touching your face and to cough or sneeze into your arm. Consider how to ensure safety messages reach those with hearing or vision impairments
Providing regular reminders and signage to maintain hygiene standards
Providing hand sanitiser in multiple locations in addition to washrooms
Setting clear use and cleaning guidance for toilets to ensure they are kept clean and social distancing is achieved
Enhancing cleaning for busy areas
Providing more waste facilities and more frequent rubbish collection
Using disposable paper towels in handwashing facilities.
Minimising use of portable toilets
Provision of automated hand sanitising dispensers in public places.

Public Health England has advised maintaining 2 metres (6ft) to reduce the risk of transmission of coronavirus.
Club Houses should still remain closed.


Statement by EBF is below.
E.B.F. Season 2020. Corona virus Statement.
The English Bowling Federation has today announced the cancellation of all County games and Competitions for the 2020 season.
The Durham Centenary competition will be carried forward to 2021.
To be able to achieve the National Finals at Skegness, Counties would have to start playing their competitions in early May, but with advice coming from the Government it looks impossible for games to start that early.
We have been inundated with calls and emails from bowlers, who have concerns about playing with the Corona virus doing its rounds.
It is hoped that our members will continue to support their County and clubs and be ready to play when we are given the all clear to resume.
Although we will not be playing the 2020 National Outdoor Championships it is hoped that we will still be able to play the Indoor National finals at Newark in September.
.
We are very sorry we have had to take this stance, but the health and safety of our members is more important than the game of bowls.
