General Rules for limited opening of the bowling green


The bowling green is now open for limited play but strictly under the Government and Bowls England guidelines. These must be followed at all times for the safety of all. Summary of these below: -


1. Booking -    All play must be done through our rink booking system.    No turn up and play is allowed.

There will be six bookable time periods each day …8am-10am / 10am-12pm / 12pm-2pm / 2pm-4pm / 4pm-6pm

and 6pm-8pm.  In those 2-hour periods your session must only last for maximum 1hr 40min,  as 20mins must be kept as changeover space for

those playing to safely leave the green before the next players arrive.

(Booking procedures are set out separately - contact the Secretary).

2. On Green -   A strict limit of 2 players per rink - use only Rinks 1 and 3 to allow for safe distancing. That means a maximum of only 4 players on the green at any one time.
3.   Use 2 jacks, one at each end. Only one player to place the jack (the jack owner to decide the length).
Only handle your own mat - or if only one mat is used per rink just one player must handle it.
No
pushers or other club equipment is to be used. Bring your own pad & pen for scoring. No chalking of woods or measuring.
Do
not handle other player’s woods And, of course, remember the social distancing rules.
4.  Cleaning :      Sanitise everything you touch before and after a game (do not assume previous players have sanitised everything thoroughly).  No bins to be used – please bag up and taken away any rubbish.
5. . The Clubhouse  ... will remain closed in line with Govt guidelines – so there is no toilet facility for  changing room or kitchen. 

Especially important to remember: -
* It is your responsibility to bring your own sanitiser and to ensure good standards of hygiene!
* It is your responsibility to maintain 2-meter social distancing at all times.

Sad passing of Keith Huckle

IT is with sadness we have to report the passing of Keith Huckle, a talented bowler who was at the club for more than ten years, having joined shortly after its foundation until 2013.

   He was a popular member whose playing days were cut short with illness and he will be sadly missed. 

  He is pictured here when runner-up with Andy Doughton in the Pairs Competition of 2012. 

Team Wraysbury compete at Potters

Wraysbury sent a contingent to the famous Potters Resort in Norfolk earlier this year, along with our friends from Staines BC, to take part in a week's tournament against clubs across the country.


They all had a very enjoyable time and Team Wraysbury had the pleasure of playing on the same rink as the top players used the previous week in the World Bowls Championships. 


Welcoming in the New Year

Our annual New Year's day Roll-up was again well supported and members enjoyed the session in cold but calm and bright weather.

After play, plenty of cheer was had in the clubhouse with food and drink aplenty!

Happy New Year!

Trevor Woodham won the Men’s League and the Pairs Knockout with partner Janet Cross, who also doubled up with the Memorial Pairs trophy. In that, her partner Tony Britton also was a winner by collecting the Winter Cup trophy which was won with Gregg Scott.
