IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR ALL CLUB MEMBERS
BCGBA - PHASE 2

 

The British Crown Green Bowling Association has informed all bowling clubs that bowling is now permissible providing that certain restrictions are implemented. These are detailed below.

 

Groups should be limited to 3 groups (total 6 people)
 Example 1.  Family group of 3 and 1 group of 2.
 Example 2.  Family group of 3 plus 1 from outside family group, one other group of 2      (maximum 6 people).
 Example 3.  3 groups of 2 people, either from the same household or different households.

CLUB NOTE - In the absence of a jack, players may use a marker. This ‘Marker’ can be a mat, a tennis ball or similar, but if a ball is used the ball must not be bowled, it must be placed.
CLUB NOTE:- The maximum number of games playing at any one time is limited to 3 games.
 Only Club members will be entitled to play on the green.
 Limited green opening times shall be applied.
 Each club shall appoint a central contact who is responsible for supplying all relevant information should Track and Trace be required.
 The central contact shall maintain a Club Schedule of Attendance. The schedule shall record the name(s), date and time of all persons utilising the green in order to ensure that limited attendance is maintained.
CLUB NOTE:- The central contact for AGB&SC is Club Secretary Pauline Whittle (on landline only) Tel. 01253 461392.
 A full 2 metres social distancing must be maintained between bowler who are not from the same household.
 All bowlers shall provide their own bowls, jack, mat and measuring equipment if required.
CLUB NOTE:- The club shall NOT supply any equipment.
 All bowlers shall provide their own sanitising aids such as gel or wipes and sanitise their equipment before, during and after a game if necessary.
 Once a playing session has been completed all bowlers shall vacate the green and surrounding area immediately.

*********

 

In addition to the above BCGBA restrictions and in order to eliminate any further possibility of contamination the AGB&SC committee has decided that the ladies and the mens clubhouse should be closed until further notice and no club member must enter either clubhouse. Please note this means there will be no club toilet facilities available.


Members must pay their annual club membership of £10 before being allowed to book a bowling session. This is by bank transfer only, details of which can be obtained from the Club Secretary.

 

The restricted bowling times are 10.00 till 17.10 daily (inclusive) and will be allocated in 1 hour time periods with 15 minutes between games. Members must cease playing promptly at the end of their allocated session and immediately vacate the green and surrounding area.

 

Members may book 1 hour sessions for a week in advance by contacting the Club Secretary. Bookings can only be made on a Friday between 10.00 and 13.00 for the following 7 days.

 

Due to the high possibility of the public being present around the perimeter of the greens the bowling mat must be placed a minimum of 2m from  the edge of the green at the start of each end.

 

NB. Any member not adhering to the above requirements will be liable to disciplinary action and the club will risk the withdrawal of Fylde Borough Council's approval for bowling to take place on the green
