News From The Clubs 2020

Wittering Bowls Club ready to go and the members are using the facility according to the government and bowls England rules. Hopefully we can have a few games on it this season.

From all Wittering members, look after yourself and hope to see everybody back on the green.

We are beginning outdoor bowls Monday 18th May.
Two rinks only, half hour gaps to allow for no cross overs, access to foyer for wcs, everything is being done with safety in mind. All games have to be booked.
The green is looking great. This is our 75th year so it is disappointing not to have all our planned celebrations. However we are glad to be back. We have had plenty of contact via email and photos, including VE day. The committee have even had their first zoom committee meeting. Let us see how things progress from now onwards but we are conscious of keeping everybody safe.

We opened our green last Wednesday, we had already prepared for the day when we could bowl again and had our own rules drawn up which include only 3 rinks (alternate ones) open,sanitising, max of 6 on green at any time, rink booking system for 1 hour sessions. Full details on our Facebook page and website.

Langtoft re-opens on Sunday with the expected restrictions being enforced.  We expect all Clubs will have their interpretation of Bowls England/ EBF/Government etc guidelines.  We have set or rinks with a 2 metre gap between each rink and whilst same household members can play pretty much without restriction, for the present time we are NOT permitting regular singles play.  In a 4 wood 21 end roll up a pair of players will have to social distance 168 times and our Committee are in agreement that this is simply not practical.  Instead we have created the Langtoft-19.  Singles, with players at OPPOSITE ENDS of the rink, bowling to a jack in the middle.  A fun game for the more competitive members until we feel safe enough to ease restrictions.  (Anyone interested in a set of rules to try it yourselves contact
