A JOINT communique from the English Bowling Federation and the English Women's Bowling Federation has been received with regard to their plans for the 2021 outdoor and indoor seasons assuming bowls gets the green light from the Government to resume in May.

The 2020 indoor finals, which were provisionally arranged to start on April 19th this year, have been postponed again, and have been rearranged to start on Monday, October 4th, subject to permission from the Newark club's board of directors. Apparently five counties are still to complete their 2020 indoor finals.

If they go ahead, it will mean two national indoor finals during the next indoor season, with the 2022 finals scheduled to start on Tuesday, April 19th, with the Eversley Trophy earmarked for Sunday, April 3rd, owing to the Monday of the finals being a Bank Holiday.

The EBF/EWBF are planning to go ahead with the outdoor programme, unless further Government restrictions are imposed, with the finals at Skegness beginning on Saturday, August 21st.

The EBF Potters Bowls Week, scheduled to start at the beginning of March, has been cancelled, the start date for next year being Monday, February 28th.
