Conditions for use of the Green during Covid-19 Restrictions 

Government & Bowls England, Requirements & Guidelines

The Government announced on 13th May that facilities associated with outdoor sports and physical activities, including lawn bowls, could reopen. Additional Government guidance released on 1st June 2020 states:

“You can play lawn bowls where facilities have reopened, but you can only take part in these activities by yourself, or with members of your household or with no more than five other people outside of your household, as long as you are able to maintain social distancing”.

It is with this in mind that we have developed the following procedures to allow our members to use the Club Green for Roll Ups and Friendly Matches and / or wish to use the Club patio and grass surrounds.

Up to 6 people from different households may meet on the Club outsides spaces, but not on the Green, provided they maintain the Government recommended distance between each other, currently advised as 2 metres.

Up to 6 people from the same household can play together on the Green on one Rink.

Up to 4 people from different households can play together on the Green on one Rink, provided they maintain the Government recommended distance between each other. This is slightly stricter than what the Government allows, but it is being applied at our Club to ensure the upmost safety for all our members.

Please be aware that the Clubhouse itself remains closed for any reason other than for the use of the W.C facilities, i.e. it is not permitted to use the Clubhouse for changing, social gathering or refreshments of any sort.

Access and use of the Green is strictly by forward booking only. Bookings should be done by telephone with Robert Green (07850 870879) ideally and at least 24hrs prior to the date required.

Two rinks will be available for booking for 1-hour sessions from 12 noon each day, the times of these bookings will be staggered i.e. on the hour and half hour to permit social distancing.

Until further advised, any full member whose partner or family are social members may roll up with them.

The Green will play across the Clubhouse on either Rinks 2 & 5 or on alternate weeks Rinks 3 & 6. This is to maximise the space between occupied rinks.

Please don’t come to the Club if you have symptoms of Covid-19 or in any other way feel unwell.

If you are coming to the Club by car, please ensure that you do so only with members of your direct household and whilst at the Club that you park an appropriate distance from other car park users.

Whilst the club will provide sanitisers and antibacterial wipes (in the plastic boxes at the end of the rinks in use) please also bring your own self cleansing products to ensure your safety.

Conditions for Socialising in the Club’s outside spaces

Members can now use the Club patio and grass surrounds to meet in groups of up to a maximum of 6 playing / social members. Government social distancing rules must always be adhered to.

For members use, plastic chairs are blocked in groups of 6, consistent with safe distancing rules. Please assist us in these challenging times by leaving the chairs in these positions during and after use.

For both your own and others safety please bring along your own disinfectant wipes to clean the chairs down before and after use, please do not use the materials in the two rink boxes. Please dispose of used wipes properly either by putting in the large waste bin by the main gate or by taking them home with you.

We hope that you enjoy your bowling and use of the outside facilities


Please respect these rules

If you don’t comply you put the whole process at risk for everyone!

Any questions on any of the above please contact Robert Green on 07850 870879.
