Covid-19 – Important Update – June 2020

Following Government advice on allowing sports activities while following strict social distancing guidelines, our Tennis courts re-opened in May (full details and guidelines on Tennis News) and the Outdoor Bowls green is now open for individual roll ups, or to play with one friend, or in household groups. Three out of the six available rinks are open to allow for social distancing (Bowls England Guidelines are HERE). The Petanque area is also open for singles and pairs play.

Indoor facilities are slowly reopening, again subject to strict guidelines. Squash courts are open from 25th July (with restricted game play), and Indoor Bowls from the 1st August. Booking for both is mandatory, and details are available from section secretaries or the club office. The coffee machine is available in the clubhouse as are toilet facilities but the bar and kitchens remain closed.

The Executive Committe will continue to meet weekly, and will monitor the situation closely. We will keep all members informed as things change. Meanwhile please do adhere to the Government advice on hygiene and social distancing, stay fit and well, and we’ll look forward to seeing you when all restrictions are lifted.
