Bowls Canada Releases Updated Rulebook!

Ottawa, Ontario | April 2, 2015

Bowls Canada Boulingrin is excited to release the 2015 Crystal Mark 3rd Edition Laws of the Sport.  This version of the Laws of the Sport is effective in Canada as of April 1, 2015. 

In addition to an overall re-numbering of the laws, a prominent change was replacing the word “should” with “must” to maintain consistency throughout play.  For a summary on the revisions to the laws, please visit:

Impacted Conditions of Play and Domestic Regulations are in the final stages of review and will be available at once approved and available in both official languages.

The booklet itself has also been updated with new features including a spiral binding to increase usability on the green and an index to help with quick searches.  Bowls Canada Boulingrin wishes to express our sincere gratitude to Chief Umpire Nicholas Watkins for his work on creating the index and preparing the documents for publication in both of Canada’s official languages.

The cost of the rulebook is $8.00 plus shipping and is discounted to $7.50 plus shipping when purchasing more than 50.
