Bowls Jersey Management Committee last night met for the first time ever via Video Conference.
Preparations continue for the upcoming season in line with Government advice and common sense, but plans were discussed for helping our more “at risk” (and the wider community) and showcasing why Bowls really is the Community Sport. We will keep you posted of our plans, but in the meantime urge you to please keep safe, keep healthy and look after yourselves. Follow the guidelines and if we can do anything at all to help you, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org where we would be delighted to see what we can do to assist – even if you just want a chat.
Stay Safe, Be Kind and in a world where you can be anything – don’t be the person who buys more loo rolls than you need!
Due to the ongoing situation with regards COVID-19, the BIWBC and BIBC will not go ahead as planned in June. There will be attempts to re-arrange both the Mens and Ladies Championships either later in the year, or next year to ensure the 2019 Champions are crowned.
By publishing this response and strategy, Bowls Jersey wish to demonstrate their preparedness for the season to protect members health rather than to instil panic. We believe that this is a sensible and pragmatic step for any Sport Governing Body to take.
Please take note of the newly issued Player and Club guidelines.
Bowls Jersey Nationals that are British Isles Qualifiers WILL NOT commence until after World Bowls has completed.
No games will be played until May.
The space between rounds has been extended to allow for game re-arranging following feedback from 2019.
Club Nights that were successfully trialled in 2019 have been spread out throughout the course of the season to be alternate weeks throughout the season rather than as a block of every Friday in July and August.
JBC will host the Le Quesne
St Brelades will host Island Finals
The draft diary has been circulated and approved by ALL Club Captains.
The Bowls Jersey Management Committee thanks everyone who gave feedback to the new schemes trialled last year and hope that this years diary addresses many of the frustrations and concerns of last year have been addressed.
We wish all our members a successful, but most importantly, an enjoyable bowling season.
