TODAY’S announcement of the rescheduled date of the previously postponed 2020 World Bowls Championships has been a great fillip for the bowls community.
World Bowls is delighted to provide the new dates for the event, which has now been rescheduled for 2021 as agreed with the Host National Authority Bowls Australia, following their consultation with all major stakeholders.

The new dates for the event are as follows:

Practice days: Saturday 22 May – Monday 24 May 2021

Play Days: Tuesday 25 May – Sunday 6 June 2021

Rest Day: Monday 31 May 2021

Over the forthcoming months all those Member National Authorities who had previously confirmed their participation in the disciplines in the finalised field for these Championships will be requested to re-confirm their participation in the relevant disciplines and advise of any changes to their previously selected player(s) and playing positions. It is currently anticipated that deadlines for submission in these respects will follow similar timelines as before.

World Bowls take this opportunity to thank Bowls Australia, key stakeholders and all concerned parties for all their efforts and cooperation to reach agreement to the revised dates during what has been and continues to be a very difficult and concerning time for us all.
