BowlsWales, WBA, WWBA and WCGBA welcome the Welsh Government’s announcement that Organised outdoor children’s activities can resume. This will allow any person under 18 years old to take part in organised outdoor activity. The number of people who can meet outdoors is now a maximum of 6 people from 2 different households. You will find Club guidelines on BowlsWales and NGB websites.

In addition, the following areas will be considered as part of the 22 April review, if the public health situation continues to remain positive and vaccination rates continue to increase:

  • Gyms, leisure and fitness facilities
  • Outdoor attractions
  • Outdoor hospitality
  • Community centres
  • Organised activities (30 outdoors, 15 indoors)
  • Extended households.

Further ahead and of benefit to sport, there are also revisions to the number of people who can gather indoors and outdoors at Alert Level 2, moving from 30 people outdoors and 15 indoors to 50 people outdoors and 30 indoors. This is all subject to Welsh Governments review of the regulations and the landscape in which #public health will be at that time. The revised Control Plan is available here:

BowlsWales and the National Governing Bodies (WBA, WWBA, WCGBA, WIBA, WLIBA & WSMBA) are working together in producing specific guidelines for each code of the game to reflect the anticipated review announcement on 23rd April. Depending on the Welsh Government review and the state of public health at this period, Wales would continue their phased approach of moving into alert level 3. Any support or guidance will be found on the BowlsWales or National Governing Bodies Websites.
