The corona virus crisis led to many local sporting events being cancelled over the weekend and now comes news that bowls has also been hit.

Madeira Bowls Club have announced that, owing to the on-going corona virus situation, all friendly matches have now been cancelled as have several county competition fixtures including the Lacemakers Top Club competition final in which Madeira were due to meet Honiton in the final.

That match will now be played later in the year when the next indoor season will get underway, hopefully in Autumn.

There must now be some doubt about the start of a new outdoor season which traditionally gets underway in April.
