  The wearing of shorts by Ladies

This is the text that, in June 2021, Beryl Beresford wrote to the County Secretaries:- 
The NDC Sub Committee have looked into the shorts available for the EWBF Ladies and they have chosen the following which were allowed in the rules for the dress code.
White Ladies Tailored Bowls shorts.      From Aceit Sports Wear. 
  Style Code LTS001.     no logo.   sizes 6 to 26.   Cost approx £32.00p.
They are the Tailored shorts as worn by the EBA (not the casual elastic waistband style). Also available in Grey.
John Bell of Aceit Sports Wear is creating a client area on their web site for the Federation Ladies.
Players are to order their shorts directly to Aceit.
To view on the web and order:
1.   Go to www.aceitsportswear.co.uk
2.    Choose aceit stock bowls range.

The wearing of shorts by Men


It was passed at the 2018 AGM that tailored shorts (with EBF logo) may be worn, white in inter-county association matches and national championships, grey in other games. For the full dress regulations for men click on “Rules (2019)” in the Main Menu to the left and see rule 7.21. Shotbowl are the only EBF approved outlet. Here is the link to the relevant page of their website.
