National Competitions Update
The EIBA Board have reviewed its plans for the completion of the 2019-2020 National Finals and the 2020-2021 Winter National Competitions programme, based on the current Government easing of the COVID-19 lockdown.
With Indoor Bowls, along will all other Indoor sports, still not being permitted to take place and what, if any, restrictions applied to any activity being unknown the EIBA have made the following decisions: -
Reschedule of the 2019-2020 Finals These will now not be scheduled to take place at the end of September to early October, as originally planned. However, they are now provisionally scheduled to be held during 1st November to 20th November 2020. With the expectation that over the next few weeks that fuller details on when and how Indoor Bowls can re-start a final decision on whether the Finals can be played will be announced on 2nd September 2020.
The EIBA trust that all the competitors involved will understand this decision due to the continuing uncertainty but can make their own plans for the next few months. 2020-2021 Winter National Competitions The EIBA are continuing plans for these to commence in the Autumn of 2020.
To accommodate the 2019-2020 Finals re-scheduling all Club and County team competitions will now start from the weekend of 21st-22nd November. Individual competitions will commence from October. As a result of this change the National Finals weeks will be held from 5th to 23rd April 2021.
Full details of draws and play on / by dates will be published late August. The EIBA will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation and if necessary, review and update the Competition Schedules.
