TUESDAY AND FRIDAY 'ROLL-UPS'

THERE WILL BE A ROLL UP ON TUESDAYS 22nd and 29th DECEMBER BUT NONE ON DECEMBER 25TH and JANUARY 1ST.
PLEASE NOTE THAT FROM 5th JANUARY ROLLUPS WILL BEGIN AT 10.00am.

This decision was taken by a members vote with a clear majority in favour of a return to the earlier start.

There are restrictions on numbers as we can use only three rinks. Maximum permitted to play is eighteen (18).
We will keep track of who attends roll-ups, just in case.

We are therefore asking members AND visitors to book a spot in advance. This MUST be done by email to bookings@balaiabowls.org

Members will have access to the equipment shed for scoreboards, pushers, mats and woods. Shoes will NOT be available.
Changing rooms, lockers and showers remain out of bounds.

You are all well aware of 'social distancing' and everything else that must now be taken into consideration

FOR DECEMBER, ROLL UPS WILL BEGIN AT 10.00am finishing at around 12.15pm.
