July 19th – What Happens Next . . .

Dear Members,

On the 19th July all Government Covid 19 restrictions will come to an end. I am pleased to set out below how the club will operate from that date :

We will continue with the defogger in the Bowls Hall and Restaurant, sanitising will be carried out once a day as has been the case since we reopened.

Hand sanitising stations will remain around the club.

Bowlers will still be responsible for sanitising Jacks and Mats at the end of each session.

Toilets will be limited to two people at any one time.

All mandatory signs and barriers will be removed.

Bowling will return to normal play.

Members may play fours if they wish, but can continue to play triples until the Winter Season starts.

Rinks one , three and five when playing fours or triples should start from the far end.

Bowlers seeking a game may before a session starts ask the green keeper or centre manager if they can be placed on a rink which has availability.

Both the bar and restaurant will be set up pre Covid, you may request table service if you feel uncomfortable standing at the bar or servery .

Please continue to use the online booking system, although we do not wish to discourage drop ins and as before we will continue to record all visitors to the club.

It will not be compulsory to wear a mask, BUT, we ask you to be considerate to others by putting a mask on if you find yourself face to face in the following areas when they are busy:

At the bar when ordering drinks.

Restaurant servery when ordering food.

Around the locker areas and rink tables.

When entering the toilets.

At the green stewards desk when in discussion.


Whilst the club can lay out various rules and recommendations, at the end of the day we all have to be responsible for our own actions. We ask you to be considerate to staff and fellow members.

Best Regards

Dave Parks


Congratulations to Eleanor – Our First University Placement Student

Eleanor started her placement with the club to support her course work in all aspects of sports management. Although she couldn’t compete her planned hours due to Covid, she worked alongside all the directors, staff and members to gain knowledge that would help her complete her final year.

We are thrilled to tell you that she attained a First Class Degree and recently applied for employment with the Commonwealth Games, where she has been appointed as ‘Assistant Sport Competition Manager for Lawn and Para Lawn Bowls’ She will be involved in running the bowls event in Birmingham 2022. 

Message from Eleanor . . .

‘My job title is going to be Assistant Sport Competition Manager for Lawn & Para Lawn Bowls, so myself and my manager will be running the bowls event at Birmingham 2022.

I really cannot thank you and all of the members enough – it may have been just shy of two weeks for my placement but it really had a huge impact on me which I will be forever grateful for.

Best wishes,

Eleanor Skipp’


We wish her much success, what an amazing start to her career.

Preston 54 vs Eastbourne 92

Message from Julie Woods, our Ladies Captain . . .

“I would like to thank all of our club members who drove and travelled to Preston for our first friendly mixed match in a very long time, we were made to feel very welcome and safe at Preston and would like to thank them for all their hard work in arranging the match.
It certainly was a very enjoyable afternoon and a wonderful feeling to be back bowling against a different club.
We won on all 4 rinks and the overall score was Preston 54 Eastbourne 92”.

Ladies Afternoon Bowling

Our ladies captain, Julie Woods and vice-captain Anita Feltham would like to encourage our lady bowlers, whether you are a novice or experienced bowler to join in a Tuesday afternoon bowling session 2pm – 4pm.
The idea being to encourage and bond the ladies section in preparation for a return to matches in the future.
Going forward all 6 rinks will be available, the format will be drawn triples, each team having an experienced bowler as skip to give help and guidance to anyone who needs it, however, depending on the number of ladies attending each week it may mean some weeks the format will be pairs or a mixture of both.
If you would like to join this group but have not yet done so please email Anita email hidden; JavaScript is required to say you are interested.
Julie and Anita will be pleased to see you.

Ladies captain Julie Woods (L) and vice captain Anita Feltham (R)

Any ladies reading this who are not members of the club but would like to find out more please email our centre manager Naomi at email hidden; JavaScript is required or ring her on 01323 506009 Mon-Fri 10am-2pm.
