 Bookings may be made by ringing Sharon on 07949 531433 between 9 & 11, weekdays (Monday to Friday) ONLY,. PLEASE DON’T LEAVE A MESSAGE ON THE ANSWERPHONE, IT WILL NOT BE ACCESSED.

Members can make as many bookings as they wish in one go. There are now no restrictions on this.  All those playing must give their names at the time of booking.

Sessions will be free and last for 1 hour 50 minutes.

Sessions will be 10am to 11.50am, 12 noon to 1.50pm, 2pm to 3.50pm, 4pm to 5.50pm. Tuesday to Saturday. Only rinks 2, 4 & 6 will be available.

The club has made every effort to keep members safe and healthy. If you make a booking, you do so at your own risk and all members of your rink agree to accept that should any of your players contract any disease/injury of any kind, the club, or individual members of the club shall not be held responsible.

Players must arrive in separate vehicles unless they are from the same household. They must park with a car space width from any other vehicle. Change into whatever you need in the car only.

Social distancing is in operation all the time members are on the club premises.

Players must arrive no more than 10 minutes before their session and stay in their vehicle until called, when they will form an orderly queue at 2 metre intervals. Players about to play must allow players from the previous session to vacate the green and only move to their rink with instruction from a Steward, who will be on duty at every session.

 

Each session will have a designated Steward, whose decision on all matters will be final. Players will be expected to know and understand these rules fully before booking.

The Steward will be in sole charge of proceedings. He/she will direct players to their designated rink.

Toilets will not be available at any time. Please go before you leave home.

If you bring drink with you on the day, you must take every piece of rubbish back home with you. No bins will be provided for this purpose. Smoking will NOT be allowed anywhere on the club grounds.

Players may sit on the benches but please bring your own individual seating should you wish.

Up to 4 members per rink will be allowed, only if they are from the same household or 4 players per rink not from the same household but practising social distancing, (so pairs is now permissible)

If you are not from the same household, only one player on each rink will be in charge of ONE mat and 2 jacks. Only that player will place the mat and jack at both ends. The jack will be placed and not rolled. No other player will touch either the jack or the mat at any time. At the finish of each end, do not pick up anyone else’s bowls.

If you are from the same household then you may play a normal game but sanitisation and other safety rules still apply.

After each session, the mat/jack carrier will sanitise both and place back on the green for the next session. If it’s the last session of the day then they should be placed, with the sanitiser tubs in the plastic and cardboard boxes provided.

NO scoreboards, measures or chalk will be used. NO physical contact of any kind will be permitted. Social distancing must be maintained by all. Be careful not to lick your fingers or touch your face.

When players are told the session is finished by the Steward, only one more bowl per player can be bowled, then the players must vacate the green immediately practising social distancing at all times. They must go directly to their vehicles, taking all their equipment and belongings with them and leave the club premises without delay.

Any breaking of these rules will see the player being asked to leave the grounds and not be allowed to book again.

These rules are for the safety of everyone. This is a chance to get back to some kind of bowls, please do not abuse it.
