CLUB DAYS

Members taking part in the ‘Club Day’ programme should note:

  • Names must be “in” 30 minutes before the scheduled start time. Organisers need this amount of time to draw and select teams and finalize the organisation for the event.  Members too late to meet this deadline will, if not required, need to bowl in a separate roll-up.

  • Members should ensure that they have their four bowls with them on Club Days.  The numbers attending may require a game other than fours to be played where more than two bowls are required.

  • Details of the “Club Day” programmes are displayed in the pavilion.  Although liable to change on the day, these programmes will give members an idea of what is planned for the particular day and will provide a varied and interesting programme throughout the season. The programme falls flat without your involvement.

  • Some Club Days may be cancelled if the greens are required for Centre Events  - This will be displayed on the pavilion notice board
