Update Re Squads for 2020 and 2021 Season


Given the rather unique situation in 2020 with Covid 19 we have been unable to name a conventional Emerging Squad and Elite Squad for the 2 year build up to the Commonwealth Games.


It is our intention to select an Elite Squad following World Bowls in May/ June 2021.This will stay in place until the completion of the Commonwealth Games in 2022. Those players currently in the Elite Squad will remain in place this year.


A new Emerging Squad will be selected at the start of 2021.


In the meantime for the remainder of the 2020 bowling season it is our intention to have Squad Sessions with both the World Bowls Squads and the 2020 Emerging Squad which is listed below. It is hoped sessions will take place at several locations to cut down travelling for players. Other names may be added to the Emerging Squad as the year progresses. It is hoped to use some players from the current Elite Squads also in these sessions.
