PCC Bowling Greens Re-opening during Covid-19

These guidelines apply to the following PCC Bowls Greens to be reopened:

Devonport Park, The Hoe, Tothill, Central Park, Harewood, Deans Cross

N.B. Clubhouses to remain closed currently until new guidance is released.

Green opening times from 1pm (to ensure appropriate maintenance regime).

Play guidelines

Guidelines must be followed. These have been taken from Bowls England guidelines and PCC reserves the right to update this as the situation changes:

  • Online booking only – no drop-in, at least 24 hours in advance.Each club will be sent a link to an online booking page with a password.This is not a public facility and the booking system will not be shared with anyone outside of club membership

  • Gates to remain locked and members to bring their own key

  • Members to bring their own equipment for use where possible

  • Clubs to provide sanitising products for all shared equipment

  • Wash and sanitise hands and all equipment before and after play

  • Minimum of 20 minutes between slots

  • Play should only consist of the number of people and households which complies with the latest government guidance

  • Competitive play will only resume once government guidelines allow this

  • Alternate rinks only

  • Social Distancing guidelines must be followed

  • Only essential items should be used i.e., bowls, jacks, mat, a lifter can only be used by one person

  • No visitors or spectators

  • Absolutely no use of building facilities is allowed

It is the responsibility of the clubs to communicate these guidelines with their members before arrival at the club. If these guidelines are not adhered to, the Council may be forced to close the Greens.

I have read and understood the guidelines for use of the Bowling Greens during Covid-19 and will ensure this information is shared with and adhered to by club members
