Notice to full bowling members !!

Kirkliston Bowling Club committee have held a meeting this evening and are moving to implement the guidance issued by the Scottish Government and Bowls Scotland to allow the safe resumption of bowling at the club.

The guidance given by Bowls Scotland, in conjunction with the Scottish Government, is extensive and prior to attending the club to play all members are requested to familiarise themselves with the content; the guidelines have been prepared to allow the safe return of bowling (as attached).

Bowling will recommence at KBC on Monday 1st June; albeit on a restricted basis;
As we are not yet allowed to use the club premises which includes the bowlhouse and toilets, we request that any member wanting to play on or after 1st June should uplift any of their equipment from the bowlhouse before this date (the Bowlhouse will be padlocked after this date until further notice). If this causes any problems, you should contact a member of the committee.

Mats and jacks will be provided along with disinfectant spray and after each game players should cleanse both; players should ensure they are dry before use; this is to deter any damage to the green.

A booking system will be going live as of Thursday 28th May (more details will follow on our Facebook page and website later this week); Members will only be permitted to play if they have booked a time and will be restricted to one time slot per day to start with.

There will be 3 rinks available for play on a daily basis starting 12pm with the last slot being 8pm (again refer to Bowls Scotland guidance document below with regard to social distancing and play). Time slots will be 90 minutes with a 30 minute turnover.
It’s a start and we’re hopeful it will be further relaxed in the future (only when the time is right though), but in the meantime stay safe and please adhere to all guidance provided.
