THE CORONAVIRUS OUTBREAK GUIDANCE

The latest rules brought in by the Government on public gathering and social distancing means that we have to close
the bowls club for all play and social activity until further notice.


Earlier we had informed by this statement:-

Your committee have discussed the impact of the outbreak emergency on our club and members, and in response to the latest Government advice on restricting social contact, we have made the following decisions on planned activities over the next few months - 

1.   Weekly Roll-ups.  Our Friday and Sunday club sessions are cancelled until further             notice.
2.   Inter-Club Day (Apr 12) and Open Day (May 2) is cancelled (though will be reviewed          for reinstatement later).
3.   All our summer house competitions are cancelled.  (Entry fees to be reimbursed).
4.   Friendly matches.   Those arranged for April and May will be cancelled.
5.   We have decided to keep the club Open – but with the following provisos and precautions: -
       If you wish to come down to have a practice/roll-up,  there should not be more than
       4 players at any one time on the rinks for reasons of keeping safe distance.
       Players must make sure of personal safety, eg, by not picking up opponents’ bowls
       or shaking hands.    Anti-viral wipes should be used to clean the jack, and take care           over picking up the mats and please clean all equipment after use.

       The Clubhouse must only be used for essentials and not to socialise  – and logging            in the book who has played is important.  Also important is to wipe down anything              touched in the clubhouse (there will be an anti-viral spray or wipes available).                     Please wash hands thoroughly on entering and leaving the premises.

6.    KLV League matches  -   It has now been confirmed that the first half of the season            will be cancelled. At this time the door is open to the possibility of all clubs playing              each other just the once (instead of home and away) in second half of the season,            from week eight onwards. This will be reviewed probably in late May,7.
        C&T League has not yet made a decision.
 
    General Advice.      Of course examine your health and do NOT come to the club if: --
  *  You have a cold, cough or high temperature
  *  You have travelled from or through an infected area within the last 14 days
  *  You have had close contact with or helped care for anyone suspected or diagnosed           as having Coronavirus (COVID 19) or who is currently subject to health monitoring for       possible exposure to the virus.
  *  You or any person you are in contact with has had a fever of 100.4°F/38°C or higher,          felt feverish or had chills or had symptoms of a cough or difficulty in breathing.

The Committee feel this is the right action to take to safeguard all of us at this critical time.

We will monitor the situation as the weeks progress and let you know if anything changes.

                                                              Thank you for your co-operation.

Team Wraysbury compete at Potters


Wraysbury sent a contingent to the famous Potters Resort in Norfolk recently along with our friends from Staines BC to take part in a week's tournament against clubs across the country.

They all had a very enjoyable time and Team Wraysbury had the pleasure of playing on the same rink as the top players used the previous week in the World Bowls Championships. 









Welcoming in the New Year 
Our annual New Year's day Roll-up was again well supported and members enjoyed the session in cold but calm and bright weather.  
After play, plenty of cheer was had in the clubhouse with food and drink aplenty! 
Happy New Year!














2019 Presentation Dinner
THERE were a few double successes at this year’s club awards dinner – led by Val Lambert who picked up the Ladies League and the Knockout trophies.

Trevor Woodham won the Men’s League and the Pairs Knockout with partner Janet Cross, who also doubled up with the Memorial Pairs trophy.  In that, her partner Tony Britton also was a winner by collecting the Winter Cup trophy which was won with Gregg Scott.
