Rules

    All matches should comply with the rules of the game as determined by World Bowls: Crystal_Mark_Third_Editionv3.pdf . Bowls England subsequently produced a summary of changes and interpretations they have adopted: WB law decisions November 2014.pdf

    All members of the Association - the officers, clubs and their members - are also required to abide by the rules of the Association - see below. Clubs are asked to ensure they are accessible to their members, especially those in office and/or play in any league teams or enter any competitions. 

    Proposals to amend the rules may be submitted by any affiliated club by 1 September. The proposal(s) are then circulated to affiliated clubs and a vote is taken at the subsequent Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the Association held, usually, in November. 

    At the 2018 AGM there was a significant change to the league section of the Association's rules.  Click here to see the updated version of the Association's rules.

    In 2019 the AGM will be held Friday 8 November at 10am at Pirrie Park. All women players may attend, and each affiliated club has 2 votes.
