COVID – 19 and the balance of the season

by Aaron Delaporte

This afternoon the Bowls Australia Board, key BA Staff and the State and Territory Chief Executive Officers met by teleconference to review the current scenarios facing the sport in light of the COVID-19 virus.

It was agreed that any decision made must be in the best health interests of the competitors, club staff and volunteers, particularly given the age demographic of our sport. In addition, any decisions made must acknowledge the advice of health authorities and government, both state and federal.

As a result of this advice, Bowls Australia will make an announcement tomorrow morning regarding the continuance of events for the foreseeable future.

Following that Bowls WA will make a follow up announcement on the future conduct of pennants, ladies country week and state events.
