Further to the Bowls Committee meeting this week, we have agreed, following Bowls England guidance, to open all 6 rinks on the Top Green for singles and pairs only.
We are not permitted to play triples and rinks without spaced rinks which we will not be doing on the Top Green in order to accommodate the leagues and competitions as well as give all members a chance to roll-up.The Bottom Green, which is due to be closed next Monday morning will remain as 3 spaced rinks.
This leaves 6 rinks open from next week which should be sufficient – it is worth noting that never once since we first opened have all the available rinks been used in one day.
Rather than change the system which we are all now used to, the kit and sanitising arrangements will stay the same, using the bottom gate for entrance, the shed on the bottom green for storage and entrance to the top green via the stairs or ramp from the bottom green.
Please remember social distancing means staying 2 metres apart unless it is not possible and then it is 1 metre +
Please note that rink 2 on the Top Green will be closed from today until next Monday at the earliest due to damage to the edge.
