LIVE STREAMING OF ZONE SINGLES

Mark Alexander, Thursday, 13 August 2020

 

Thanks to the initiative of Matt Blackburn (Belrose), and with the support of the Zone 9 Executive and Match Committee, there will be live-streaming this coming Saturday of selected matches in the post-sectional rounds of the Zone 9 Singles Championships at Harbord BC.

 

Matt and Steven Maas (Belrose) are able to live-stream 2 matches simultaneously with one appearing on the Zone 9 Facebook page and one on the Belrose Bulls Facebook page.  On Saturday morning they will be streaming both semi-finals of the Open Singles while on Saturday afternoon you can watch the Open and Senior Singles Finals.

 

Not only does streaming offer the chance to watch some outstanding bowls but it provides an excellent medium for the promotion of our sport.

 

Tune in on Saturday to the Zone 9 or the Belrose Bulls Facebook page!!

 

BA - DOMESTIC REGULATIONS & POLICIES

Mark Alexander, Thursday, 13 August 2020

 

For some time now the Zone 9 Umpires Committee has been requesting from BA that they publish their Domestic Regulations on the BA website.

Despite repeated requests, this has not occured so they can now be accessed via the Zone 9 website, either via the link below or under the 'Umpires' tab.

FUTURE OF THE 2020 BOWLS SEASON??

Mark Alexander, Thursday, 6 August 2020

 

Bowls Australia are currently looking into the feasibility of running the Australian Championships and Australian Champion of Champions in late November and have asked each STA for their input.

Due to the COVID situation in Victoria, it is the position of BNSW that the Australian Championships be cancelled or at least postponed.

 

BNSW is also aware that due to COVID hotspots throughout NSW, club number restrictions and increased entries, many Zones are finding it difficult to provide sufficient host venues, to arrange markers for singles and to have time to complete their remaining Zone Championships.  BNSW is therefore looking into all options for the 2020 State Championships and State Champions of Champions. This includes cancellation or moving them to be played in early 2021.

This will be based upon the decision made by Bowls Australia, which is expected next week.

 

The State Match Committee will allow for any Zone to postpone any Championships and re-schedule them at a better time later in year, beyond advertised closing dates, if needed.

A further update on 2020 State Championships will be made as soon as practicable, once BNSW has been notified by Bowls Australia of their decision regarding the Australian Championships.

REVISED 2020 ZONE 9 BOWLS PROGRAM

Mark Alexander, Friday, 5 June 2020

 

The revised Zone 9 program of events for the period July-December 2020 can be accessed via the link below.  This program remains subject to change depending upon the success or otherwise of the various strategies in the roadmaps to recovery issued by the State Government, through the Health Department, and BNSW.

We remain hopeful that Clubs can begin their Singles and Pairs Championships from July onwards but this has not been 100% confirmed.

 

Notes about the revised Program

  • the 2020 Mid-Week Challenge has been CANCELLED by the Zone 9 Executive
  • closing dates for the Zone Singles & Pairs and for the Zone CoCC Singles & Pairs are clearly marked
  • entry forms will be sent out a few weeks prior to the closing date for each event
  • we have allocated at least one spare day for each of the Zone Championships to take into account bad weather, number of entries etc.
  • the Roseville Shield has been moved from Saturday 10th October to Saturday 28th November; this will be confirmed

 

 

Thanks all and enjoy your long weekend!!
