A Simple Guide to Current Requirements for the 2022/2023 Season

A great deal of confusion has arisen since the introduction of the new "World Bowls" stamp. Below is a simple guide to the current requirements.

Firstly all composition bowls (i.e. not Lignum Vitae) must have a legible stamp dated 1985 or later on them. If you play with Lignum Vitae bowls, the 1985 relaxation does not apply, they must be stamped every 10 years, therefore you must get them stamped as soon as the expiry date is reached. All stamps must be legible.

If you have any of the following stamps you will be able to play in Club, County and National Competitions until you qualify for National Championship Finals. The expiry date on these stamps must be 1985 or later.


All players reaching the National Championship Finals must have a World Bowls Stamp with an expiry date of 2023 onwards until the date expires, after which you will have to have your Bowls re-tested

The following Semi-Finals are also played at the National Championships Finals venues, therefore players competing in the Top Club, Mason Trophy, Under 30 Double Rink Triples & Over 60 Double Rink Semi-Finals must have a World Bowls Stamp with an expiry date of 2023 onwards until the date expires.

The new World Bowls Stamp is shown below and if you have this on your bowls you will be able to play in all matches including internationals
