JACK AND MATS
Clean Jacks and Clean Mats can be found in the function room in a box marked “clean”. One person from each team must collect a clean mat and jack for their rink. The player who collects the mat and jack must be responsible for the mat and casting of the jack during play. They are also responsible for returning them to the “used” box at the end of play.
Please be assured that mats and jacks will be thoroughly cleaned and sanitised between each session
Rinks 1, 3, and 5 must start from the scoreboard end, and Rinks 2, 4, and 6 must start from the function room end. This is to allow for social distancing.
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 from each 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.
PLEASE DO NOT BEND DOWN TOWARDS THE BOWLS TO GIVE INSTRUCTIONS TO TEAM MATES.
PLAYERS MUST REMAIN STOOD UPRIGHT AT ALL TIMES DURING PLAY AS THIS WILL LOWER THE RISK OF PLAYERS CONTAMINATING OTHERS BOWLS.
