Confusion regarding relaxed restrictions on bowls

by jgrey

Bowls Queensland would like to clarify the confusion that has been created from a statement put out by Bowls Australia on Monday 27 April regarding “Relaxed COVID-19 Restrictions on Bowls” across Australia. This includes a newspaper article in the Gladstone Observer Newspaper today: https://www.gladstoneobserver.com.au/sport/

Bowls Queensland’s position remains unchanged regarding information put out in BQ Memo 20011 on April 6: “Bowls Queensland does not condone roll ups and should a club allow them it is the full responsibility of the clubs concerned and not BQ”.

The QLD State Government have agreed to relax some restrictions within the State on May 2, but none relate to playing bowls that we are aware of.

Bowls Queensland continues to liaise with the QLD State Government and will advise districts and clubs when we condone roll ups to commence within QLD Affiliated clubs.

Please note: Bowls Australia and the Gladstone Observer Newspaper have updated their stories since this post was published.
