Government’s further easing of COVID-19 Lockdown
Following the Prime Minister’s statement earlier today on the next steps of easing the lockdown I wish to advise that unfortunately Indoor Bowls, along with other Indoor Sports and Gyms, were not included in the permitted activities. Therefore, Indoor Bowls Clubs are to remain closed.
The EIBA will continue to liaise with Sport England as they work closely with the Government to ensure that Indoor sports facilities can open as soon as possible.
In addition, we will be studying the Government’s guidance, when published, relating to the new social distancing of 1 metre plus, so that we can update our ‘Returning to Indoor Bowls’ document in order for Clubs to continue making appropriate preparations for when the sport can re-commence.
As soon as we have further information in these matters, we will update our affiliated Clubs and County Associations.
