What is happening in level 3?
Bowls New Zealand Guidelines
For Level Three, Step One -
Limited to two bubbles per rink (at any one time) on no more than four rinks per green.
Bubbles may not swap rinks during the same day.
Our recommendation for the sport of bowls, is that bubbles should be limited to singles and pairs only.
Mats and Jacks may be used, but must be sanitised before and after play.
All clubrooms/toilets will be closed
Any person(s) using the club green must email the club advising of their time/date of use in advance (so that the green is not over populated)
Persons visiting the club must sign in with the NZ COVID Tracer app, or sign a register – this register/sign-in must be available on the outside of the clubrooms/facility.
Bowlers should take sanitising wipes with them to wipe down mats, jacks, gate entry, seats etc.
Physical distancing should be maintained.
GOOD NEWS BOWLERS!!

Whilst at the club -
Most importantly - Sign in!
