Please maintain current social distancing guidelines if you are waiting to enter the club.

Please arrive 15 minutes before you are due to bowl and wait by the club front door until a member of staff lets you enter. On entering the club, a member of staff will take your temperature,  please then immediately sanitise your hands, using the sanitiser provided in the lobby. All internal doors will be wedged open.

Please do not stop to socialise within the Club thoroughfares and be respectful of other members looking to enter the club. If you are accessing the club to bowl, you will be able to proceed directly to your pre-booked rink. Payment may be made by cash or card payment  at reception.


CHANGING ROOMS are closed until further notice.

You will be able to change shoes, etc at the end of the rink.

You should avoid bringing unnecessary personal belongings into the club wherever possible.



These will be out of bounds until further notice. If needed, you can retrieve any belongings from lockers on your first visit. You will then need to take them home with you after playing. You will need to carry your shoes and woods into the club with you on subsequent visits.



The main toilets will be open on a one in, one out basis.  Specific safety guidance around the use of these toilets will be provided within the club. These toilets will be cleaned between each session. Please remember to flip the vacant and engaged poster when in use.



Please note that, for safety reasons, the Air-Conditioning will be switched off until further notice.. All Fire-Exit doors will, however, be wedged open. This is for additional ventilation



You will be able to borrow these in the usual way. And they shall be cleaned every after use.



We are, for now, restricted to individual games of singles and games of pairs. It is planned for games of triples to be allowed when leagues commence in Sept.



Have 2 jacks and position with your foot, do not roll the jack. Do not touch the jack unless retrieving from the ditch. If you do touch the jack please then sanitise your hands. No scoreboard to be used only score cards.

Home team should walk down the right hand side of the rink, retaining 2 metres between yourself and all other bowlers. And the away team on the left as you look at the jack. When communicating with your team mates at the other end, please refrain from shouting or calling loudly. This significantly increases the risk of spreading infection.

 When measuring, please nominate one person from the home team to do this; please do not handle either the jack or woods other than your own. All others bowlers must remember to retain 2 metres distance when a measure is occurring, Only one lead and one skip from the home team per rink to handle the mat. The mat will have a white sticker on the end to be handled by the lead; the skip is then to handle the end without a sticker. After delivering your wood, please leave the mat to the left. The next bowler should then access the mat from the right. Do not touch any woods other than your own, if bowls are in the ditch please use the blue roll as supplied.


No shaking hands before or after the game

Stand on the rink side when it’s not your turn to bowl if you wish or remember to maintain 2 metres between you and all other bowlers.





Please sanitise your hands when leaving the Bowling area,

You are expected to leave the bowling green as quickly and safely as possible after your session end. This is so that bowlers for the next session can enter without causing undue crowding, and cleaning of all surfaces and toilets can be done. You should exit through the main doors, these shall be closed during play.


You must take all belongings with you when leaving the bowling green, please put all rubbish in bins provided and take your own used PPE  home.

Lockers are now out of bounds.
