English Indoor Bowling Association Ltd

The EIBA is pleased to acknowledge the following Official Partners & Suppliers


Following the Prime Minister’s Statement to Parliament this week on how the Government propose to ease lockdown restrictions and offer the Country a route back to a more normal life, the EIBA can summarise what this means for the sport of Indoor Bowls in England: -

Step 1 No earlier than 29th March 2021
  Indoor Bowls Clubs to remain closed, unless Clubs have arrangements with schools for pupils to participate in
after school clubs.
Step 2 No earlier than 12th April 2021
  Indoor bowls clubs will be able to open and have individuals or people from the same household play on the
same rink.
  Club shops will be able to open.
  Club bar and restaurant only able to serve people outside via table service.
Step 3 No earlier than 17th May 2021
  Indoor bowls clubs will be able to allow up to 6 bowlers from different households or members of 2 households
on a rink.
  Club Bar and Restaurant will be able to serve people indoors via table service for up to 6 people or members
of 2 households.
Step 4 No earlier than 21st June 2021
  It is hoped that all limits on social contact are removed and Indoor Bowls can return to normal.
At all stages the Government will make decisions on specific restrictions such as social distancing, face coverings, vaccination certificates etc so these will need to be factored in the planning prior to any re-opening.

Please note that the provisional dates for each step may change if the government believes it is not safe to move to the next phase.

The EIBA will continue to update its Clubs, Counties and bowlers once more details are received for each step.

Chief Executive
