Following the announcement by the Health Minister on Thursday 20th August that outdoor gatherings are reducing from 30 to 15 we have obtained clarification that this does not apply to organised sporting events, see below relevant paragraphs and a link to full statement below:
Certain events can have more than 15 people attending as long as a risk assessment is carried out and necessary measures are put in place.
This will include weddings, church services and sporting events where a close adherence to social distancing and hygiene regimes continues to apply.
With the situation clarified, the PG have decided to proceed with the Pairs Cup/Plate competitions and the Singles/Pairs competitions as planned.
We recommend that spectators do not attend matches in order to keep numbers at a minimum.
All previous guidance supplied when bowls recommenced is still applicable and we encourage all players and clubs to remain vigilant.
