2021 SEASON UPDATE - 03.04.2021

Following a meeting of the secretaries of the Lincoln area bowls leagues, all clubs are advised to prepare for a full season of league and competition bowling.

The City of Lincoln Bowls League fixtures from 2020 have been carried over to their corresponding dates in 2021 and the first fixtures in the Afternoon League are on 29th April, with Evening League matches commencing on 10th May.

Similarly the Competitions remain as drawn for 2020, with the play by/play on dates adjusted accordingly.

Further information on playing arrangements will be issued in the next few days. Any clubs with concerns should contact Alan Buxton or Colin Barks.


Noticeboard extract 1 -  2020 Season


• City of Lincoln League
• Lincoln & District League
• Cliff League
• Bowls Lincolnshire Section 2 Fours League
• Bowls Lincolnshire Section 2 ASC Metals League

The Meeting of all above League Secretaries was held this morning to decide if it was possible to start the 2020 Season and play during July and August.

All the Clubs had been contacted to see if they would like to play League Games in July and August.
The majority of Clubs said their members did not want to play in Leagues under the present conditions so there was no other option than to take the decision that the 2020 Season was cancelled.

To save time and money all League and Competition Entries will be carried forward to 2021.
All 2020 handbooks will be used for 2021. This will just mean adjusting some of the Dates.
No new Competition Entry Forms will be sent this year so the 2020 draws will stay the same and if there are any new members wishing to enter Competitions for 2021, they will be placed on a reserve list.
Hopefully next year will be back to normal.


Noticeboard extract 2 -  Latest Goverment Guidelines for Outdoor Bowling

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.
