Resumption of Short Mat Bowls nearer

The ESMBA today issued a further update regarding the resumption of short mat bowls. County Associations, and their clubs and bowlers, will eagerly await the full publication of the guidance notes on Monday. The statement from the ESMBA is printed below.

Covid-19 Update: The ESMBA have received its feedback from the Department of Digital, Culture, Media, and Sport. We can announce that we had no adverse comments and nothing but positives regarding our documentation to getting members back to bowling. The Management Committee will be working closely this weekend with the County Safeguarding Officers in preparation to release documentation and procedures for clubs to return to bowling. The ESMBA will publish its full guidance notes and procedures on Monday 17th August 2020. We will also be issuing details of our ‘Covid Fund’ on Monday 17th August 2020. This will include what we will consider and how to apply.
