RETURN TO INDOOR BOWLS STEP 3 - 13.05.21
Following the Government’s announcement on Monday that the Country will be moving to Step 3 of the roadmap out of COVID-19, the EIBA is pleased to confirm that Indoor Bowls Clubs can expand their activity from what is currently permitted under step 2. For a full Return to Indoor Bowls Guidance V7 please click here.
The main point is that Indoor Bowls in affiliated Clubs is classed as organised sport so the rule of 6 per which is the key number for indoor activity under Step 3 is not necessary. The maximum number of people on the green is controlled by size and giving 100 Sq ft space per person.
However, at this stage the EIBA recommend that you focus on rule of 6 per rink so that your members and visitors feel comfortable in returning to play, whilst we remain in Step 3.
