Friendly Triples Match


We have arranged a Friendly Match away against North Duffield on Thursday 1st July 6pm for 6:30pm start.

We are initially looking for 3 rinks of triples (Mixed 2 Gents & 1 Lady per rink).

If both clubs can field more players we will of course add extra rinks if possible.

We will play a return fixture at Hemingbrough one Thursday night in late August.

A list is up in the clubhouse please add your name if you wish to play.

Any issues please speak to Greg 07545 258723.

The Clubhouse is NOT open.  Therefore there will be no access to the toilet or for drinks.

All the bowling equipment is in the shed/garage store.

There is a book in the store which details the rules which MUST be adhered to if you use the green.  You must sign the accompanying sheet before you bowl to indicate you have read and understood the rules.

If you are bowling with others NOT from your household you must maintain social distancing at all times (2 metres / 6 feet).

There must be a free rink between occupied rinks at all times.

Sanitising gel / wipes are available in the store.  Please use them before and after bowling.  Please do your best to clean any club equipment you use.

You may wish to remember to take a drink with you during this hot weather.  Please take all your rubbish home for disposal.

Thank you for your cooperation.

Bowl safely everyone.

Coronavirus – update

In light of the guidance issued by Bowls England regarding measures that would have to be put in place to ensure members’ safety, and which would be impractical,  it has been decided that the club will have no option but to remain closed for bowling until further notice.

Stay safe everyone, until we can all meet up again.

Coronavirus – a message from the Club Secretary

Dear Member,

It has been decided to postpone the Pre-Season meeting scheduled for 30th March 2020 due to the continuing situation around Corona Virus in the UK.

The indoor bowls event at Selby indoor bowls club on 29th March 2020 has also been cancelled.

At this time we do not have any further information on the Goole League for 2020 or potential green opening date.

I will endeavour to keep you updated on the situation as more information becomes clear.

Please keep safe, look after yourselves and follow the latest government advice.

Best wishes,
Greg Stephenson
Club Secretary
