Welcome to Okehampton Simmons Bowls Club



The following is a message from Bowls England to its members and clubs in response to the latest government guidance on the Coronavirus outbreak:-

Bowls England last week announced the cancellation of all its domestic events ahead of the 2020 lawn bowls season including its National Championships, and now wishes to ensure that members and clubs play their part.   All Celebration Matches scheduled up to 1st July 2020 are cancelled.  The programme for the remainder of the year will be reviewed by Bowls England on 1st June 2020.  All clubs will be officially contacted.

The Club understands that Shield Matches for both Ladies/Gents,  Top Club for both Ladies/Gents, County Competitions and Foxlands Matches etc. are cancelled in their entirety for the whole season.  At this stage Over 60s matches up to the halfway point are cancelled.  We await further notification with regards to league matches.

Accordingly the club has taken the decision that the opening day of our season is delayed until JULY 1ST and of course is subject to further notifications.  In brief, there will be no bowling at all before this date and further information will be posted on this site when it becomes available.  For the time being
