by tbreuer

In response to the latest lockdown extension announced by the NSW Government, Bowls NSW Ltd has provided an update on the status of all remaining 2021 State events. Please note, any rescheduled dates for 2021 events are FINAL – there will be no further postponement of events in 2021.

A link to the latest Bowls NSW Ltd calendar of events can be found at the end of this Circular.

Updates have been provided for:

  • NSW Over 40’s Pairs Championship

  • NSW Over 40’s Pairs Championship – CANCELLED

The NSW Over 40’s Pairs Championship has been cancelled for 2021. All entries into the event will be refunded in due course.

  • Open Gender & Women’s State Championships – CANCELLED

Due to the significant reduction in available calendar space for the remainder of 2021, the tough decision has been made to cancel the 2021 Open Gender and Women’s State Championships.

With several Districts/Regions/Zones yet to complete championships in respective disciplines, the decision not to postpone the event into next year was made with the intention of providing clubs, districts and regions/zones the best possible opportunity of completing all scheduled 2021 events without also impacting on 2022 events and calendar.

All entries into the 2021 Womens State Championships will be refunded in due course.

Regions/Zones do not have to complete their 2021 Championships, however, are encouraged to do so where possible.

Regions/Zones scheduling any Championships must give consideration to clubs completing their Club Singles and Pairs Championships to give them the opportunity to enter the State Champion of Club Champion events.

Bowls NSW Ltd would like to thank South Tamworth, West Tamworth and Ettalong Bowling Clubs for their understanding and support throughout this process.

  • Women’s State Pennant Finals – POSTPONED & NEW VENUES CONFIRMED

Bowls NSW Ltd acknowledges the support of Kingscliff, Pottsville, Banora and Cabarita Bowls Clubs in the change of venues due to the difficulties associated with the Queensland border closure. We look forward to hosting the State Pennant Finals at Forster Bowling Club and thank the club for offering their support to the event.
