Controller Frank Hosegood, Umpire Colleen Ferrick.

Players are asked to respect the following Bowls New Zealand regulation and ensure that clothing is of a neat and tidy standard.  Laws of the Sport of Bowls, Domestic Regulation 1.3.2

Bowlers are reminded that only flat soled shoes/sandals (with a slightly abrasive surface) can be worn on Hawke’s Bay bowling greens.

Reason; currently, there is a problem with bowlers wearing ‘sports’ shoes (running/walking/netball shoes with treaded soles) on Hawke’s Bay greens.   
Stones wedged into small holes in the sole of sports shoes can cause serious damage to artificial/carpet greens when inadvertently dragged/scraped on the surface of the green.    Precision lawn-mowers used to cut natural greens are damaged by stones of any size.  Tar covered stones are often attached to the sole of sports shoes by walking on pavements or roads.  Tar causes permanent damage to carpet greens – think of your car after going through road-works!
Be aware that you may be asked by the Controlling Body or an Umpire to remove your illegal or unsuitable shoes, and may need to play in your socks!

Open Tournaments: for any tournament other than a Club Tournament, members of * ‘Teams’ or ‘Sides’ that also may include singles players, must wear garments of the same colour/design as determined by the Tournament Controlling Body.  Any garment may have logos displayed, but the Controlling Body may impose conditions relating to sponsor’s logos to ensure that there is no conflict with a tournament sponsor.

* A ‘Team’ is a Pair, Triple or a Four – like in an ‘Open Fours’ event.
A ‘Side’ is number of teams – like the ‘Sevens’ or ‘District Shield” when points for all disciplines are
