COVID-19 Safety Regulations - BowlsWales

BowlsWales welcomes today’s announcement from the First Minister that bowls will be included in the daily exercise permissions in Wales from Monday 22 June.

Our thanks go to Sport Wales, the Welsh Sports Association and all who completed our recent club survey to enable our case to be put forward.

It is essential that we all continue to adhere to the Government’s restrictions and keep ourselves and everyone else safe at all times. Clubs and players are likely to be under additional public scrutiny for a while so please ensure that we all keep within the rules.

We have developed our own set of guidelines to assist clubs and players on our return to the green and to ensure that we adhere to the continuing social distancing restrictions.

Our guidelines are available below.

BowlsWales is here to help -if you feel we can, please email us at any time at

The following documents will be available following advice and guidance from Welsh Government
