BOWLING DURING COVID-19 – UPDATED MONDAY 11 OCTOBER 2021
The Prime Minister has announced an easing of restrictions in Auckland. In particular, bowls was mentioned as an approved form of exercise. Subsequently Bowls NZ has sought some clarification on the ramifications of the Prime Minister’s Statement.
In line with the interpretation the following will apply to Howick Bowls from midnight tonight:
- Members may play bowls on the artificial greens
- Maximum numbers on a rink are to be ten
- There must be no more than 2 households per rink
- Each rink in play must be separated from the next rink by at least 2 metres (i.e. double spaced)
- Club equipment can be used but must be sanitised after use, members to bring their own sanitising wipes.
- The Clubrooms will remain closed.
- Members must sign in using the Covid tracer posters at the Clubrooms.
The Club will not be organising any competitions.
The grass greens will remain closed until such time as we are able to get a group together to finish off the preparation.
We will update members as and when the Government announces changes to the limits.
