Latest on which greens are open and closed

Updated: May 13

It is getting complicated in knowing if your club's green is open or closed. The new BCGBA guidance gives clubs the option to open their green but not their clubhouses. Even if you open up then there are various restrictions that apply and these may vary from club to club although there are strict rules that apply to all clubs.


If clubs want to let their members know if they are closed or open and how they are managing access as well, then please feel free to use these pages for that purpose. Let us know how your club is reacting to the news and we will share it with all.


The Government's new guidance regarding members of the same household being able to play sports (including bowling) together will not apply to members of Broad Oak B.C. The decision has been taken that the green is closed to all-comers as there are concerns about insurance cover during the present lockdown period.


However, Lindley B.C. have decided to open their green to members only as from Wednesday 13 May and are updating their own guidance notes to support members return to bowling.

Rastrick Bowling Club green will be open, to members only, from Thursday 14th May. Timed appointments only. Please arrange with Janet Holroyd. Both clubhouse and pavilion will be closed.


Paddock I&C closed until further notice.
