Bowls Leicestershire Annual General Meeting  

Saturday 20th November 2021, 2.30pm to be held at Knighton Victoria BC

It is now two years since an AGM has been held by Bowls Leicestershire and, in that time, we have gone through a Unification process so that, instead of three AGMs (Men’s, Ladies, and Combined) we now have one.   At this AGM we will conduct the business for the whole of Bowls Leicestershire including the election of all Officers, both Ladies and Men, and it is imperative that we have a good turnout of Delegates (both Ladies and Men).   During the summer the BL Board has worked hard to streamline the content of the AGM to ensure that the meeting is completed as quickly as possible. 

Each club is entitled to send two voting Delegates (one man and one lady) and other observers if they wish.   If a nominated Club Delegate is unable to attend another club member may deputise for them to ensure their club vote is not lost.

You will see we have scheduled the AGM for Saturday 2.30pm November 20th at Knighton Victoria BC, this day and time was chosen to ensure that all Delegates could attend, including who are still working, and nobody will be required to drive in the dark.

To speed up the meeting and reduce paperwork, all Officers’ reports will be provided on-line from the website and can be downloaded, if required, from the following link:  Bowls Leicestershire   At the moment you will find the first three reports there but over the next two weeks the remainder will gradually appear; the Treasurer’s Report will be provided as a paper copy at the meeting and will be presented by the County Treasurer.

Attached is the Agenda for the meeting and I hope to see you all there.




At the Men’s Management Committee meeting on 12 April it was decided to amend the rules for Bowls Leicestershire Men’s County Competitions in accordance with Bowls England competition rules during the current Covid situation.

Please ensure that any players entering these competitions from your Club are aware of these changes.

County Update | November 1st 2021

Welcome to a special edition of County Update.

As we now start to look ahead to 2022 season many of you will now be starting to prepare your internal calendars for the forthcoming year.

We will be reviewing the rules and regulations during the next couple of months to reflect the changes to competition formats in 2022, and we aim to have this complete by the end of the year.

We would like to highlight a few points to assist you in preparing for the season.

Bowls England Regulation: No. 50 Approved April 2021

1. Bowls England National Championships

1.2 All County Championships leading to National Championships shall be played either on weekdays in the evenings with a start time no earlier than 6pm or at weekends. For weekday games an earlier start may be arranged by mutual agreement between competitors, but in the absence of mutual agreement the start time of no earlier than 6pm shall be adhered to.


When arranging dates and booking venues please note that all weekday matches are to be played during the evening with a start time no earlier than 6pm. Matches can be played during the day on weekdays but this will be down to the players to mutually agree between themselves once the draws have been published. Matches arranged at weekends can be at any time of the day – suggested start time no earlier than 9.30am nor later than 6.30pm. The above ruling applies to all championships under the jurisdiction of Bowls England and applies to all rounds including final stages and county finals.

Bowls England Regulation: No. 50 Approved April 2021

1. Bowls England National Championships

1.9 Each entry shall be made by one named player only, and that player shall be excluded from being a substitute in the same discipline.

When collecting entries for National Championships, you only need to collect one name upon entry and not all the names within the team. This provides greater flexibility to players, especially given the length of time between point of entry and the start of events.


Bowls England Regulation: No. 50 Approved April 2021

1. Bowls England National Championships

1.8 The Administrator of each County Association shall forward to Bowls England, the number of entrants in each of the Championships, together with the relevant entry fees as determined by Bowls England, by the 1st March in the year of the competition.

Forms will be issued to counties early next year.

We trust this update is of assistance. If you have any queries please do not hesitate to get in touch.

We would also appreciate any promotion you can give the National Competitions entries, when they go live, on your own websites and social media channels.

If you have any questions on the above, please email [email protected] or [email protected] and they will respond in due course.
