2021-22 WINTER LEAGUE PROGRAMME

WILL START ON MONDAY, 27th SEPTEMBER

Are you ready? Do you need new bowls gear?

The Bowlswear Direct Roadshow will be visiting the club as part of the Open Weekend on Saturday, 25th September from 10.30 am – 2.00 pm.

If you are looking for new bowls or anything bowls related, then please call Chris or Pete on 01483 536337 or visit their website www.bowlsdirect.com.

They are always willing to help and happy to bring samples/orders with them.

Step 4 of the Roadmap to ease Covid restrictions

The Directors would like to reassure all members that we are proceeding with caution and that your safety and enjoyment of the game remain our number one priority.

The EIBA have issued the following statement “. . . With many Clubs already operating limited schedules and/or have summer leagues operating under Step 3 restrictions, the EIBA believe consideration for these to continue as is until the end of the summer arrangements would be prudent.”

The club will therefore continue to operate under the present Step 3 restrictions and will not move to Step 4 of the Roadmap until we feel it is safe to do so.

We therefore ask members to proceed as before ie check your temperature and use hand sanitiser on arrival and wear a face covering in designated areas. Mats and jacks will be sanitised after each session and the club will continue to be ‘fogged’ every day. The aircon will operate during opening hours and if we all maintain social distancing we can keep our club Covid secure.
