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.

In a slight change of style for the day, only one session of Men’s and Ladies Pairs is scheduled and competitors have a bowls free afternoon to explore Guernsey. Bowls Guernsey have kindly organised an island wide coach tour which has been accepted by many of the Countries – here at Bowls Jersey we are sure the highlight will be seeing the Jersey coastline in the far distance 😉
Good news today though – 8 points up for grabs and 8 points brought home!
The Ladies at the picturesque Delancey Park took home a commanding 2-0 victory against Spain, whilst the Men romped the first set against two very pleasant brothers from Switzerland but had to dig deep the second set as the Skipper decided he’d found his line when playing weight!
A good day for Jersey – both teams hopefully sliding slightly further up the leaderboard. Although unconfirmed, both teams were lying 6th overall before today’s play.
3 more games each of Men’s and Ladies pairs tomorrow to come!
