IMPORTANT - UPDATED INFORMATION FOR ALL CLUB MEMBERS

BCGBA – RETURN TO PLAY: STEP 1: ISSUE 2 – 01 APRIL 2021

 

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

  • Only Club members shall be entitled to play on the greens.
  • Groups shall be limited to a maximum of 3 groups (a total 6 players on a green at any one time)
  • All games shall be ‘singles’ games (2 players each game)
  • 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 21-day Club Schedule of Attendance. This 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 The Club Secretary, Pauline Whittle (on land line only). Tel. 01253 461392.

  • A full 2 metres social distancing must be maintained between bowlers who are not from the same household.
  • Players must bring all their own equipment. The Club’s equipment is not allowed to be used because the clubhouses will remain closed.
  • All bowlers shall provide their own sanitising aids such as gel or wipes for the purpose of sanitising their personal equipment and shall do so before, after and during a game if necessary.
  • Once a playing session has been completed all bowlers shall vacate the green and surrounding area immediately and are not allowed to remain as a spectator around the green.

IN ADDITION….

Members must pay their annual club membership of £10 before being allowed to book a bowling session.

 

The restricted bowling times are 10:00 till 17:15 daily (inclusive) and will be allocated in 1-hour time periods with a 15-minute interval between games. Members must cease playing promptly at the end of their allocated session and immediately vacate the green and the surrounding area.

 

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 surrounding path at the start of each end.

 

Members may book 1-hour sessions for a week in advance by contacting the Club Secretary. Bookings can only be made on Fridays between 10:00 and 13:00 commencing 2 April 2021 for the following 7 days.

 

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