BRITISH CROWN GREEN REFEREES SOCIETY
All competitive sport’s activities are governed by a set of laws/rules. The playing of crown green bowling is not an exception to this and is governed by its ‘Laws of the Game’. The application of these Laws at both national and local competitions is overseen by qualified referees who are members of the;
British Crown Green Referees Society (BCGRS).
The Society is responsible for maintaining the standard of refereeing and acts as a support for clubs or individuals wanting information on, or clarification of, the ‘Laws of the Game’. To this end the Society would encourage all clubs to have at least one qualified referee in their membership.
For further information please contact David Williams, BCGRS Secretary.
