An Update to All Queensland Indoor Bowling Association Members regarding the effects of COVID-19

The Queensland Indoor Bowling Association committee of management met on Friday night via teleconference and has postponed the May state titles indefinitely. This was required as a result of the restrictions placed on mass gatherings by the Federal Government and in order to protect the health of the Queensland indoor bowling community.

The Q.I.B.A. also strongly encourages all member associations and their clubs to cease all indoor bowls activity, regardless of the number of participants. The nature of our sport conflicts with the currently recommended social distancing and sanitation measures and continuing to play represents a substantial risk to all involved.

The committee will continue to meet regularly via teleconference to discuss future bowls events and we hope to be able to reschedule lost events later in the year, where possible. While the bowls season has come to an abrupt halt, we encourage players to maintain their passion for our great sport. There are many hours of high-quality matches that can be viewed online and the friends that we’ve all made on the mat are only a phone call away.

Decisions on future events will be made as the situation unfolds. The committee will keep you informed of all news and we wish players and their families good health during these unfamiliar times.
