18 August 2020

On advice from WBNSW on 18 August, all District Championships and Regional Play-offs are postponed from 19 August for a minimum of 6 weeks. WBNSW has also announced that the State Champion of Club Champions events have been postponed, to a date yet to be decided. The Weekend Pennant has been cancelled altogether for 2020.

2 August 2020

WBNSW has announced that the State Pennant play-offs will not go ahead for 2020, which has lead North Shore District to abandon any further Pennant play this year. At this stage, the State Association is still proceeding with the championship events, Weekend Pennant and Summer League.


3 July 2020

With the return to competitive bowls (but with continuing “social distancing” and hygiene precautions”), Women’s Bowls NSW is proceeding with the Pennant Season for 2020, as well as the State Championships, Weekend Pennants, Summer League, Champion of Club Champions Singles and Champion of Club Champions Pairs.

COVID-19 update

1 July 2020

Bowls competitions have been given the go-ahead and the limit of 4 players per rink has been lifted, enabling a restart of club, District and State championships, etc. There are still health requirements that must be met. See the announcement from the State Associations below:

Update on the District Triples and Singles 

13 April 2020

With registered clubs still closed across the country, there is still no prospect of us getting back to bowls in the near future. The District has therefore advised clubs that the entry deadlines for the remaining championship events (Triples and Singles) have been abandoned. You can read the announcement here: Triples and Singles postponement

Women’s Bowls NSW is currently gathering data from all Districts on which championship events had been completed, and the number of rounds played in each Pennant grade. If WBNSW should advise us that the championship program is to be completed this year, the District will set dates for playing the Triples and Singles and start the entry process afresh.


17 March 2020

he Bowls community across Australia has been working on a response to the COVID-19 situation in recent days. Today, the Boards of Women’s Bowls NSW and Bowls NSW held a teleconference and have issued a joint statement, announcing the immediate suspension of all organised bowls events until further notice,  i.e. Pennants, State/District and Club championships, tournaments and also social bowls.  You can read the announcement here: C7_-2020_Joint-Circular-with-WBNSW_COVID-17-23
