STATEMENT REGARDING INDOOR COMPETITIONS
The London & Southern Counties Bowling Association (L&SC) continues to monitor the Governments advice regarding Indoor Bowling and in particular the ability of Clubs to play inter-club competitions.
We also continue to monitor the English Indoor Bowling Association’s (EIBA) advice and their actions regarding their own competitions.
We are hoping that our Indoor Competitions for 2020-2021 will be able to be held but remain aware that a later start may be necessary.
We are ready to issue all our Draws as soon as we are reasonably confident that the competitions will be able to be played to a conclusion in March 2021
For your assistance we are able to state the proposed time spans for each competition, which are as follows :-
Challenge Shield – 28th November 2020 – 7th March 2021 (up to 5 games before Final)
Single Rink (Indoor Fours) – 30th November 2020 – 7th March 2021 (ditto)
Mixed Pairs – 30th November 2020 – 7th March 2021 (up to 4 games before Final)
Mixed Fours – 14th December 2020 – 7th March 2021 (up to 3 games before Final)
These dates are (unfortunately) still provisional, and as stated above can, subject to suitable conditions, and dependant on other national competitions, be held over a much shorter time period if necessary.
The L&SC hopes to be in a position to make a more definitive Statement, regarding its Indoor Competitions in September 2020, but remains flexible enough to delay starting its 2020-2021 Indoor competitions until January 2021, if this proves to be a better route.
A further Statement/s will be made as soon as possible and as further information and directions are received
Issued 3rd August 2020
competition forms now available on competitions page.
We can but hope that we are back to normal before the start of the indoor session.
matches that have been planned for this year are in
abeyance and decisions on them will be taken as
the year proceeds..
