Rykneld Bowling Club is an exciting and progressive Club that promotes participation of the whole community in the sport of Crown Green Bowls.
Ever since the Club closed down in line with Government and BCGBA regulations it has been steadily putting in place comprehensive measures to ensure that it will be a totally safe environment for members and visitors when it is permitted to re-open in 2021.
These actions include:-
- ‘Deep Cleaning’ of the premises by a specialist cleaning company using leading-edge ‘ZOONO’ anti-bacterial cleaning solution that provides protection on all surfaces for up to 30 days before further treatment is required.
- Sneeze screens in bar and kitchen areas.
- High quality ‘blade’ hand dryers with HEPA filters and blue UV sterilisation lights to kill germs.
- A contactless card system to permit payment by credit / debit card - if preferred to using cash.
- Special procedures to ensure that any cash taken is not re-used for giving change, without 100% sterilisation.
- Use of face masks in the Clubhouse and social distancing being mandatory.
- Implementing all concerns expressed in the ‘Outdoor Back to Bowls Survey 2021’ (Click to access).
- Sanitisation equipment for hands, bowls, jacks and mats before and at the end of every game.
The Club offers social bowling and (if desired) participation in one or more daytime or evening league competitions.
It caters for bowlers of all standards and all age groups - and competes in the South Derbyshire, South Derbyshire Ladies, Belper and Floodlit Leagues.
It provides free coaching / tuition sessions throughout the season. All equipment is provided. You just need to turn up with flat shoes (i.e. no heels) and sample a great sport in private surroundings, with a superb clubhouse that offers all facilities.
The Club provides a range of indoor leisure activities to Members, Guests and to the wider Community - such as whist drives, beetle drives, dominoes, Celebration lunches, live music nights, charity horse race meetings and large screen presentations on various subjects of interest.
Whether you simply want to have a go at Crown Green Bowling (socially or competitively) or just make new friends, you will find that Rykneld Bowling Club is a friendly and well run place. Either way, you will be made to feel at home, so why not come and visit us?
