CHAMPION of CHAMPIONS

World Bowls, having fully considered all current global circumstances, have regrettably decided that the World Singles Champion of Champions

2021 scheduled to be held at Naenae Bowling Club Wellington New Zealand must now be cancelled.

The next edition of the annual World Singles Champion of Champions will now be the 2022 event and has already been confirmed, to be held in November 2022, at the same venue in New Zealand.

World Bowls, Bowls Australia Host Organising Committee, and their key event stakeholders having fully considered all current global circumstances and the outlook for continuing restrictions relating to the global pandemic for the rest of 2021 have decided that it is now necessary to further postpone the World Bowls Championships scheduled to be held in September 2021.

The revised dates for the events are now 8-23 October 2022 (inclusive of 3 practise days ).

All the above parties have expressed their continuing full support and desire for this major flagship event to still go ahead hence this final proposal to reschedule.

You will fully appreciate that in order for World Bowls and Bowls Australia to now push forward with all the planning requirements, we must first ensure that there is a viable level of confirmed attendance by participating nations for these proposed revised arrangements to be finally confirmed, and then these revised arrangments can be formally, publicly announced.

As such, we require you to confirm, at the earliest but no later than Friday 5th March, that you will still participate in the event on these revised dates in October 2022 in those disciplines in which you have qualified subject to travel restrictions, or otherwise.

Your attention to and cooperation with the above is much appreciated
