Covid-19 Reopening

Buckfastleigh Bowling Club is pleased to announce that we shall be operating a near normal season this year. The men are entered in the Mid Devon League and the Over 55's Leagues, and the ladies are entered in the Plymouth & District League. Whilst the ladies South Devon League have decided to abandon their league this year, we have arranged a number of ladies friendlies to compensate.

As an affiliated member of Bowls England, we are governed by their advice and guidance on the return to play. As an organised sport, specific government guidelines apply which are different than those that apply to individuals. They are summarised in the latest Bowls England 'Return to Play' guidance, issued on 9 April 2021.
