CORONAVIRUS UPDATE

UPDATE 
Members will now have received notification regarding the booking system now in place and the guidance regarding use of the green.
0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-
In response to Government and British Crown Green Bowls Association advice, the Tickhill Bowling Club Committee has decided, for reasons of health and safety for all our members, that unfortunately we have to suspend our own organised events.  These include the friendly match with Ranskill, the Fun Day, our own Internal Club Competition, and Pot Lucks.
Although the green will be left open if members wish to use it, it has to be their own decision.
Forwarded under separate cover is an email which clearly explains why all league and cup games have been suspended for the foreseeable future.  The time limit is very difficult to predict, the initial thoughts are 12 to 14 weeks, roughly half of our season.
We hope you all understand the reason for this decision being taken.  It is regrettable but has to be done.  We shall keep you informed as the situation changes.
Thank you for your understanding and co-operation,
Tony Bradbury
Secretary

The AGM will be held on Monday 18 November 2019 at Tickhill Cricket Club.  The meeting will commence at 1pm.

Internal Club Competitions

The orders of play for the various Singles and Doubles matches, in accordance with the draw undertaken by the Committee are displayed in the smaller of the two notice boards at the green.

Please note the handicaps are to be used for all competitions.

The earlier these games are played, the better as the deadline for completion will be mid August.  Finals Day is 1 September.
