With the relaxing of some of the restrictions regarding outdoor bowling recently, Group 6 officers would like to confirm that three competitions WILL be available later in the summer, when we hope (expect) there to be even greater relaxation of the restrictions.
The competitions are:-
In Triples and Pairs, players do not have to be from the same club.
There will be no entry fees for those players who enter.
The competitions are for men only.
Because of time contraints, the entries will be limited to 32 in each competition.
The competitions will run from late July and be subject to the Government restrictions in place at the time and specific bowling guidelines relating to your safety, these will be issued with the draws in early July
For those players who would like to enter but their own club is currently closed or may not open this season, please indicate this in your entry and Group 6 will organise a rink at a club that is open.
Club/Competitors are requested to contact the Group 6 Secretary
preferably by email, by 1st July, giving details of their entry i.e.
The finals will be held at Essex County on Sunday 20th September
This message confirms our worst fears that the ECBA has officially 'cancelled' the 2020 Ashford Cup, with no competition taking place this year.
Also; be advised that the ECBA have 'postponed' the 2020 Wally Ball and Inter Group Knockout as well as some of the County individual competitions, in the hope that it may be possible to play them in the 2nd half of the summer, if the current lockdown is relaxed or removed.
The ECBA will make a decision before 30th June at the latest, Group 6 will advise you accordingly.
