Thu Jul 9th

On behalf of the Executive Committee of the Wolverhampton and District Senior Bowls League   

After a great deal of thought and consideration we would like to inform you that we have regrettably taken the decision that no league or competition bowls will take place in 2020. 

We have also cancelled the prize presentation in November. 

All fees paid will be held over for the 2021 season and subject to everything being equal the format of leagues and fixtures will remain the same for 2021 with the dates changing in accordance with the 2021 calendar 

Unless a club needs us to refund the 2020 subs then they will be carried over to next season. 

If you have any questions or do require a refund then please get in touch.   

Hopefully everything will have returned to some normality for the League to call an AGM in December 2020. 

Stay safe everyone and look forward to seeing you all next season.
