Bowls Dorset Championships and Competitions – Changes for 2021

For 2021 Bowls England have made changes to Championships and Competitions to enable the National Finals at Leamington to fit into a shorter period, starting Thursday 19 August and finishing Sunday 5 September.

Qualification for National Finals: Bowls Dorset will only have 1 qualifier per discipline for Championships played through County other than the Ladies 4 Bowl Singles, Ladies 2 Bowl Singles, Ladies Junior Singles and Men’s Junior Singles. A Finals Weekend for all County Championships leading to Leamington will take place on Saturday/Sunday 7/8 August. Finals for all other County Competitions will be played on Saturday/Sunday 11/12 September.

Match Formats: These have been changed for certain National Championships and Competitions. County Championships leading to the National Finals must follow these formats. The formats for all County Championships and Competitions and for National Competitions are below.
