Short Mat Bowls


On Monday, 17th August England Short Mat Bowls Association ( ESMBA) issued Government approved guidelines whereby Short Mat Bowls Clubs and Associations registered with ESMBA could resume bowling.

Each organisation is expected to complete a risk assessment according to a template supplied by ESMBA.  This is to be completed by the person responsible at each club/association for Safeguarding. This should be accompanied by a venue risk assessment.

The risk assessment document(s) must be forwarded to Surrey County Safeguarding Officer, details below.

 Upon successful completion of the risk assessment by Surrey clubs, a “Safe Bowls Certificate” will be issued by me, the club can start play conforming to the guidelines,

and the outcome forwarded to the England Guardianship Officer for record purposes.
