The Covid 19 rules for April 2021 are:

Before your bowling timed slot

Book an online timed slot with your name and who you are playing with on the rink booking system

For all member’s safety, please keep to the stated arrival and departure times.

Arrive at the club dressed to play, with your own bowls. No food please.

Should you feel unwell or believe you may have Covid 19, please cancel ASAP for others.

At the club on the day

Sanitise your hands & equipment (bowls, jack, mats, and chair) before and after you play.

Do not assume the person before has sanitised equipment.

Please change your shoes at the side of the green & leave your bags over 2m apart.

Remember the social distance rules

Set up, using 2 mats and 2 jacks, one at each end. No 2m sticks, or scoreboards.

Only player A to handle/set the mat & jack during the session. Player B to score.

If player B won the last end, player A to position mat & jack at player B’s request.
