Eltham Bowling Club

Storage of Equipment

It is good practice for all members to help with the laying out, collection and storage of equipment in the jack store.

Setting Up Rinks

It is the responsibility of all players to help with the setting up and clearing away of equipment. We are a club of volunteers and Skips should ensure that team members play their part wherever possible. It is not the job of a few to act as servants to the rest. 

Please ensure you take the numbered equipment which has been allocated to your rink and not the first thing to hand.

Protective Mats

When laying out the green protective mats it should be done as follows:-

  1. Net must be places 2 metres ( or 3 mat lengths) from the ditched either end of the rink, on the first end. The net can be in any position thereafter.
  2. The Bowling mat can be move position throughout the game after the first end.

Ditch

3. Wooden blocks with rink numbers have been made to store the 6 nails which hold down the netting. It is important to count these in and out as any missed may damage the mower or grounds equipment. Shelves and storage racks have been set aside in the jack store for all the equipment so please use them and keep it tidy.
