Road Back To Bowls?

The outdoor greens are re-opening on April 26th, all rinks must be pre-booked, as per the Covid rules, through Sam on 07503 443709.

Currently we are allowing ALL full members to bowl either indoors, when allowed, or outdoors, so if you have always wanted to try bowling on grass please do ring Sam and arrange to book a rink and ask if there is someone available to give you some coaching.

Have you always wanted to try bowls but never got around to it, why not give Sam a ring and arrange a session to experience it. Don't delay do it now!

Following the Prime Minister's Statement to Parliament this week on how the Government propose to ease lockdown restrictions and offer the Country a route back to a more normal life, the EIBA can summarise what this means for the sport of Indoor Bowls in England: -

Step 3 No earlier than 17th May 2021

Indoor bowls clubs will be able to allow up to 6 bowlers from different households or members of 2 households on a rink.

Club Bar and Restaurant will be able to serve people indoors via table service for up to 6 people or members of 2 households.

We still need teams for the Summer Leagues which hopefully will start on May 17

Step 4 No earlier than 21st June 2021

It is hoped that all limits on social contact are removed and Indoor Bowls can return to normal.

At all stages the Government will make decisions on specific restrictions such as social distancing, face coverings, vaccination certificates etc so these will need to be factored in the planning prior to any re-opening.

Please note that the provisional dates for each step may change if the government believes it is not safe to move to the next phase.

The EIBA will continue to update its Clubs, Counties and bowlers once more details are received for each step.

Once the club is running again we hope to restart the attempt to purchase a powered chair as below.
