Bowls England Rule Change in 2012

A notable rule change in 2012 as defined by the SCBA is as follows :

Portable / removable groundsheets are not acceptable for County Championships (from Prelim round onwards) or for National Competitions.   Fixed mats must be used as stated in Laws of the Sports 19.1.5 - 19.1.5.5.   If fixed mats are considered necessary a competitor cannot refuse to play.   He will forfeit the game if he refuses.

Clarification Note :  At Supreme we term groundsheets as protective nets or mats, and are used to protect the green from damage from badly delivered bowls.  The groundsheets must be fixed in place along their sides by flat headed pins or nails with no / minimal projection above ground level.  Groundsheets must be fixed with their rear edge at least 2 metres from the ditch and not more than 25 metres from the front ditch.  Once placed, they must remain in place for the duration of the match or until we consider the risk of damage is no longer valid.  The bowling mat is to be placed with its front edge just overlapping the rear edge of the groundsheet to avoid a trip risk.
