Change in Bowls Laws

posted 2 Mar 2017, 09:22 by Bantham And Ongar Bowls Club
Recently the following proposed amendment to the Laws of the Sport was unanimously approved by World Bowls Council. 
The bias side of a bowl is identified by the small grooved rings surrounding its centre and the non-bias side is identified by the large grooved rings surrounding its centre (law D2) The Laws Committee is of the view that the current requirement for large grooved rings surrounding the centre of the non-bias side is not necessary. It proposes, therefore, to revise the laws to remove this requirement. 

This means that the non bias side  can now have stickers or markings inside the grips.
