Bowls England

Bowls England has announced cancellation of all Bowls England events across the country for the 2020 season, including the National Championships held annually in Leamington Spa.

The Council are liaising with local bowls clubs about the scheduled start of the local bowls season and will keep the situation under review in the coming weeks.

Tennis courts

All tennis courts are now closed until further notice.


Parkrun have cancelled all national events, therefore the local Parkrun events at Newbold Comyn (Leamington) and St Mary's Lands (Warwick Racecourse) are cancelled until further notice.


The closures will be for an undetermined period of time and will remain under review in line with government advice. This is a fast changing situation and we will update our customers as soon as we can as things change. All our parks and public open spaces remain open at this stage, perfect for getting out and about, enjoying some fresh air and getting some exercise.

Please continue to check our websites and social media channels for further information.

Thank you for your patience and understanding which is invaluable during these challenging times.
