What does affiliation and eligibility to play policy mean for NSW?
- NSW is now the only recognised governing body within NSW and a player must nominate only one club.
- All Association events are now defined as championship events.
- Bowls NSW does not allow for a player to play pennants for two or more clubs affiliated within NSW.
What if I am currently a member of a women's club and men's club within the one club?
- The requirement to be dual registered no longer applies. A member declares their nominated club by registering with either the men's bowling club or the women's bowling club.
