Malaga Provincial Ladies Triples Winners - 13th October
Congratulations to our 2021 Winners, Joan Corbett, Pauline Ward and Pauline Ball from Mijas Lawn Bowls Club. In one of the best Finals of recent years the game was all level after 17 ends. The 18th end was replayed after some excellent bowling from both sides resulted in the end being "killed" bu Joan Corbett. The replayed end was another example of superb bowling from both teams but the Mijas team came away with a well-earned victory. Commiserations to the losing finalists Janice Rowe, Shelley Greenwodd and Julie Banfield from La Posada Bowls Club

18th February 2021
The latest Malaga FAB Executive Committee took place on 17th February. Amongst the many things discussed:
  • The Clubs decided to change the dates of the bowling season from October - April each year. Instead the season will run January - December in line with the calendar year.
    This was in part due to the effects of Brexit on the non-Resident bowling community.
  • It was announced that the 2021 National Championships will NOT be taking place.
Full minutes of the meeting can be found in the Committee Meetings page.
4th February 2021
The 2021 FAB Licence has now been delivered to all Club. Please make sure you carry it with you whenever you go bowling.

Corona Virus Restrictions
A separate page for Corona virus updates has now been introduced. Please use that for all your latest news on how it is affecting our Sport.


7th June - Phase 3 is Introduced
The government has announced that we will enter Phase 3 as of Monday 8th June.
This will be the final Phase before the return to what is being called “the new normal”.
Whilst the National government has set the protocols for Phase 3, they have also devolved power to the Regional governments to decide when and how Phase 3 develops and ends.
Once again there seems to be a difference between sports facilities and other facilities and there is little change to the protocols that affect us in Phase 3.
Here is what we have received so far as explicit instructions:
• Booking no longer necessary – however records of attendance must continue to be maintained.
• 50% use of the green surface up to a maximum of 20 players
(effectively we can use a maximum of 4 rinks)
• face mask not mandatory if the distance of 2 meters is maintained – for those over 70 their use is recommended at all times.
• spectators 1 every 20 meters
• Club bar remains closed, drinks must be brought from home
Effectively the rest of the protocols remain in force from Phase 2.
However, we are in a very fluid situation. The Junta de Andalucia has requested permission to allow travel between provinces.
The FAB has submitted a draft proposal to the FEB to present to the CSD. Hopefully this will allow decisions to be made at a regional level very soon.

The primary concern is that in Lawn Bowls the majority of our members are in the High Risk age bracket which the government continues to try to protect more vigorously than the general population. This may mean that restrictions for our Sport remain tighter for longer.


Update 29th May 2020. Malaga will move in to Phase 2 on Monday 1st June

Go to our Corona Virus page for more information.

Update 12th May 2020 - Note These changes refer to Phase 1.
Today we received more information from Consejo Superior Deportivo (CSD) and the F.E.B.
Notification of Return to Training For The Sport Of Bowls
For those Provinces that have been allowed to transition to Phase 1, the conditions are established in which professional, High Level, High Performance, national interest and federated athletes can carry out their sports activity during this phase. Both the CSD and the FEB aim to promote the reactivation of Bowling while maintaining health security, activating the measures that guarantee the lowest risk in the development of our federated sport, mitigating the appearance of new cases and their spread. (FAB Website can be viewed here)

OUR PRIORITY GOAL IS THE PROTECTION AND SAFETY OF OUR ATHLETES.

On the 14th March the Spanish Government passed a decree putting the country in "lockdown". These strict restrictions mean that all Sports facilities will be closed until further notice.
All bowls activity will be suspended until these restrictions are lifted.
Please stay safe, stay at home and stay well.
