Calling All Bowlers – Help The Sport Relaunch

All crown green bowlers are being urged to take part in a survey about returning to the sport in 2021. As we enter a New Year, it’s time to look ahead positively to the 2021 outdoor bowls season with the vaccines the key. Last year proved there is a big appetite for people to enjoy our sport in a Covid-friendly manner.

Those clubs who did open their doors provided a hub within their community for their members and experienced good levels of participation.

We know that the Coronavirus pandemic and lockdown restrictions have had a huge impact on people’s ability to play bowls. And this very short survey one will enable the powers that be to recognise how bowlers are feeling and what support is needed to return.

Mark Bircumshaw, British Crown Green Bowling Association chief executive, said: “2020 was the most challenging year and bowls has been badly affected, as all outdoor sports have.

“As we move into 2021, understanding how we re-open safely will be critical in getting our members back to the game we all love.

Completing this survey will help us - in conjunction with Bowls England and the Bowls Development Alliance - to enable a safe return for all clubs and their members across the bowling community.

“The survey should take no longer than 5 minutes to complete and thank you in advance for your valuable contribution us to ensure that we can help to get you back on the green.”

Deadline for completed surveys is Sunday 28th February.
