Postponement of Region Championship events.
A draft schedule for the Region’s Championship events has been in
circulation for some time, with certain Clubs approached to host events.
With COVID-19 Stage 4 restrictions in place across Metropolitan
Melbourne since early August 2020, and, notwithstanding yesterday’s
announcement around the relaxing of some of these restrictions, it is
clear that the sport of Bowls will not recommence any time soon.
The draft Championship schedule has a number of events with entries
closing during the month of October and the competitions due to commence
in November – namely, Over 60s Singles and Pairs, Triples and Fours.
In the current environment, the Championship Committee has decided to
postpone the running of these events until such time as the playing of
competition bowls is permitted. Clubs are asked to advise their members
of this delay.
In the meantime, the Championship Committee will review the schedule of
events and a revised schedule will be published as more information
The Committee apologises for any inconvenience and disappointment caused
as a result of this approach.
