SUMMER 2021 MATCHES: INDIVIDUAL APPLICATION FORM
The 2021 Outdoor programme can be accessed here. The full schedule for both Outdoor and Indoor Matches can be access under the “Matches” tab.
Application Forms giving details of the submission and selection dates have been sent to all Clubs and which should be available on Notice Boards. However, should any bowler wish to submit their name for consideration for all or any of the matches for the Outdoor Season they may do so direct to the SADBA Match Secretary, Brian Burfoot, by using the form enclosed. It can be downloaded here in word format or here in PDF format.
2021 ANNUAL CHARITY GALA
One of the highlights of the SADBA summer calendar is the Annual Gala that supports the President, Terry Atkinson, and his charity. Unfortunately last year’s event was unavoidably cancelled but we have a date for 2021: Thursday 26th August. The Gala will be at the President’s Club of North Mymms.
Would SADBA Clubs please give him their support? A poster to advertise the event and entry forms can be downloaded here.
All at North Mymms are mindful, of course, that while the unlock-roadmap appears to be on schedule it may be that social distancing requirements in some form could still be in force throughout the summer. If so then this will be taken into account to determine the number of entries that can be safely accommodated in line with Government and Bowls England guidance.
Do enter soonest. We are optimistic that it will go ahead and prove to be a great success, as it has been for many years, and raise a significant amount for the Dementia UK.
BOWLS ENGLAND “RETURN TO PLAY” ADVICE
In the light of the Government’s intention to remove some of the pandemic restrictions from the 17th May, Bowls England have now issued “Return to Play: Step 3 Guidance”. It can be downloaded here. In summary, this removes a number of restrictions on formats and numbers for organised activity under Bowls England jurisdiction, permits car sharing, and allows spectators and indoor hospitality.
This document supercedes “Return to Play: Step One” (published on on 26th March (here) and “Return to Play: Step Two”, issued on 9th April, (here).
