UPDATE:  Coronavirus

Following the Government announcement this afternoon it is with great sadness that we now have to suspend all bowling for the foreseeable future.
Based on the advice announced we need to avoid all mass gatherings and sporting event as these will no longer be supported by the emergency services. 
If anyone within your household has symptoms then the whole family need to isolate for 14 days.
Limit social contact wherever possible and encourage working from home. 
At risk groups - those over 70 and those with medical conditions need to take additional care.
All BCGBA meetings should now be postponed as un-necessary travel should be avoided. Contact in Pubs, Clubs and restaurants to be avoided. 
Taking this all into account all leagues should now suspend matches until such time as we are given an all clear to resume competition.
All BCGBA and BCGLCC Competitions are now suspended until further notice this should include all qualifier events. 
As a Bowls community we need to look after our members and I encourage you to follow the advice being given and support those we are able to at this very difficult time.

Sun Mar 8th

Brewood Bowling Club

Location/Access : Post Code ST19 9DY, opposite 42 Engleton Lane, Brewood.  At the north end of the Jubilee Playing Fields (formally known as the Engleton Lane Playing Fields).  If you use Google maps - change to satellite view and the position of the green in the park is really obvious.  The green has its own gate so don’t go into the park by the Tennis Court/Kid’s play area entrance as you can’t get through.  The club gate is normally locked – the home captain will aim to arrive about 45 minutes before the game is due to start to open up.

Parking: Parking is on the road usually on the same side as the green.  We ask that where possible you car share, and that you don’t park in a continuous line but leave a break of a couple of spaces at some point, usually opposite the shared drive (roughly by the tree), so that it allows a pull in for cars to pass.

Facilities: We don’t yet have a club house.  We do have a shelter to be shared by both teams.  We have a proper toilet (even though it’s in a shed) and we will provide tea, coffee and biscuits.

We look forward to joining the league and meeting you all in the summer.

If you want any further details on the club then please contact Helen on brewoodbowlingclub@gmail.com or in regard to arrangements for individual games then contact the captain/vice captain as listed in your league contact lists.

Dear colleagues


This years rule revision meeting due to take place February, will not being held as no changes have been brought forward to the League.


To ensure a balanced structure to the League,the structure of the Leagues for the 20-21 season are as follows:-


Monday night League, there are 30 teams, which means there will be 3 divisions of 10 teams.


Friday over 50s League, there are 48 teams, which means there will be 4 divisions of 12 teams. All new teams entered for this season will start in division 4.


Club secretaries and team captains, what are your thoughts of changing the date of our annual prize presentation and AGM to January 2021, making it that Heath Town Leagues will only have 1 meeting per year.


Any suggestions or comments would be gratefully appreciated, you can email myself or speak to me face to face at the paying in meeting, to be held on Monday 23rd March 2020 @ Willenhall Liberal Club commencing at 7.30pm.


There will be scorecards available at the paying in meeting and the cost is £10.00 for 500.
