Conditions of Play

The MBA have released the conditions of play for the pennant season.


The Chair, Match and Program Committee has also advised that there have been significant changes for the coming season, mostly  arising from a recent President’s meeting and from results of the MBA survey with clubs.  Others are from Match & Program Committee deliberations related to the effects of COVID 19 on last season’s bowls and the potential for a similar disruption this season.  There has also been some relocation of Rules and rewording to improve structure.


The advice from the Chair, Match and Program Committee, listing the changes, can be found here.  A complete copy of the Metropolitan Pennant Conditions of Play can be found here.


Members are encouraged to become familiar with the changes and Conditions of Play.
