Return to Bowls Update

5th April 2021

Outdoors  

The Management Committee have confirmed a recommendation made by the CoVID sub-Committee for the following:  

  • Opening Day of Monday 19th April (this is still subject to weather and green-keeper approval, but bookings will be taken from this date onwards).  
  • We do need to continue for the time being at least with all roll-ups being pre-booked via the Club Office. There is an obligation to do this in order for the Club to open as only organised outdoor sport is allowed. Anyone just ‘turning up’ for a roll up will not be granted access to the greens.  
  • Roll ups will be limited to pairs play only in the first instance. All names of those playing must be supplied to the Club Office.  
  • Sessions will be Monday-Friday at 10am, 12noon, 2pm, 4pm and 6pm.
  • No spectators are allowed until 17th May at least
  • All pre-existing rules within the Club still apply, ie. Social distancing at all times, face masks to be worn inside the Club, one-way system inside Club.  
  • Sanitising of equipment will not be necessary this year.  
  • We ask players to come ready to bowl where possible.  
  • The Bar will be open, but in the first instance with restricted hours and outdoor table service only.  
  • There will be stewards on site for the first couple of weeks to ensure all of the above are being adhered to.  

 

Indoors  

The Management Committee have confirmed a recommendation made by the CoVID sub-Committee for the following:  

  • Proposed opening date of 17th May.
  • Play will be limited to singles, pairs and probably triples, ie. 6 on a rink maximum.  
  • Rink booking will not be enforced, but Bowlr will be used.  
  • Session times will be 10am, 12am, 2pm, 4pm & 6pm. Session length will be 1hour 45 minutes
  • No spectators will be allowed initially although this be reviewed regularly
  • Members will be expected to sign Track and Trace forms upon arrival. 
  • All the same CoVID protocols still exist from the Winter Indoor season, ie. Social distancing at all times, face masks to be worn inside the Club, one-way system inside Club.  
  • The bar will be open and indoor table service should be possible but subject to change.
  • There may be stewards on-site for an initial period to ensure compliance with our COVID protocols, this will be reviewed closer to the time.

 

All of the above are subject to change as the government update their policies. We also hope that such measures are relaxed as the season progresses.
