THREE RINK LEAGUE SUSPENDED
THIS LEAGUE HAS BEEN suspended UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE
As a consequence of the current Emergency measures arising from the effects of the COVID-19 virus Bowls Wiltshire Men are following the advice of the UK Government and Bowls England.
We have already seen the closure of Bowls Clubs throughout the County.
We are therefore compelled to Suspend ALL Men's Leagues, (4RL & 3RL), and other Bowling events for the foreseeable future.
Having watched the latest presentation from Prime Minister Boris Johnson the current prediction is that the "tide will start to turn" on the defeat of this disease in around 12 weeks which takes us to the end of June. So it highly unlikely that Local and National Competitions and Championships in all disciplines will proceed in 2020.
We will, of course be reviewing the situation as events unfold and will attempt to give statements on a monthly basis.
Due to the changes we are making in the 4 Rink League system for 2021 we will need to formulate a system for creation of the "Premier" Division. This will be advised later in the "Season".
It only remains for me to say - Take this situation seriously, follow the Government's Health Warnings and look out for your neighbour and yourselves.
We will get through this and meet once more on the Green.
