| BOWLS SCOTLAND COVID-19 UPDATE
The First Minister outlined on Tuesday 23rd February an indicative
staged timetable for easing Scotland out of lockdown, including
the resumption of organised group sporting activities by the end
We anticipate there will be a return to a levels system for permitted
sporting activity with confirmation of each level due by Mid-March.
As always, we will work in partnership with sportscotland and the
Scottish Government to ensure our Return to the Green Guidance for
2021 adheres to published advice and legislation. Our comprehensive
guidance and resources are being finalised and as soon as we receive
confirmation of permitted bowling and clubhouse activity, we will
make these available to affiliated Bowls Scotland clubs.
A reminder that all clubs are now required to appoint a named COVID
Officer to ensure the club and members operate in a safe manner
and adhere to Scottish Government and Bowls Scotland guidelines.
This information is currently being gathered via capitation.
Our competition scenario planning is still ongoing, and we will
endeavour to offer as much domestic competition as possible within
the guidelines. Once we receive more information from the Scottish
Government, the Board of Directors will meet to finalise the details
of Bowls Scotlands competitions for this season.
We are confident that our clubs will continue to demonstrate adaptability,
creativity, and resilience to ensure people across the country can
safely return to the green this season.
As soon as we can, we will issue further information and guidance
to our clubs and members. Our current off-season COVID-19 guidance
and resources are available to view here: https://www.bowlsscotland.com/clubs/club-support-covid-19
