Clubs – Summary of Recommended Actions


Playing Arrangements:


  • Off-site booking system or rink allocation

  • Minimum of 30 minutes between allocated time slots to enable players to arrive/depart safely,allowing time in between sessions for members to sanitise all equipment before and after use.

  • Clubs to communicate in advance with players to advise on social distancing requirements that are being applied on arrival at the club – for example not leaving cars until a certain time before their allocated time slot.

  • Only play on alternative rinks e.g. 1,3,5 OR 2,4,6 (keep an empty rink between rinks that are being played on).

  • Maximum of six players on club premises at any one time (assuming average of two people per rink who ARE NOT from the same household). Clubs may wish to increase this number if more than two people from the SAME household are to participate on the same rink.

  • No visitors/spectators to be admitted to the club.

  • Capping the number of occasions, a player can book a rink each week to ensure that the available capacity is distributed fairly.

  • Consider what support your members might need to play (for example those with mobility and disability challenges)


Playing Formats:


The following playing formats are in accordance with the Welsh Government guidelines:


  • Individuals playing bowls on their own on a single rink

  • Two individuals from TWO different households playing on a single rink (no marker)

  • Members of the SAME household on a single rink (no marker unless from SAME household)

  • Social distancing rule must be STRICTLY ADHERED TO - you must remain at least TWO meters apart from other bowlers (who are NOT part of your household) at all times


Clubhouse and Facilities:


  • Until further notice, all club houses must be closed

  • Limit essential access (for example to use toilets and hand washing facilities) may be allowed by the club

  • Sanitisers must be available for cleaning hands and equipment before and after playing

  • No rubbish bins - players must take their rubbish away with them

  • Social distancing rules must be strictly adhered to you must remain at least 2 meters apart from other bowlers (who are not part of your household) at all times




To minimise the risk of infections, only essential items (such as below) should be utilised during any session.

  • Mats

  • Bowls

  • Jacks

  • Rink Markers

  • Gloves

  • Scorecards (these should be retained by one person only if required)

  • Bowling Arm / lifter (for use by one person if required)


To minimise the risk of infection, any other equipment is not deemed essential equipment at this time and should not be utilised: this includes

  • Scoreboards

  • Bowls Pushers

  • Ditch Markers

  • 2-meter distance sticks

  • Chalk


Good Practice:


  • A check list should be produced to ensure that all the procedures are in place every day

  • Clubs should organise a system for booking and allocation of rink times, that ensures the safety of the players

  • A register made up informing the club of the people who attended on a daily basis and the times they logged in and out, this could assist track and trace procedures if required.
