Return To Bowls

Written on .

We are excited to welcome members back to Bowls at St Johns Park Bowling Club from Tuesday 19th October.

The return will be under strict COVID Safety Plans with a range of limitations implemented. Members will be given the opportunity to come and roll up in two-hour timeslots.  Formal Social Bowls and Club Championships will recommence later (date to be advised).

Members are required to book a rink and can organise themselves a game between themselves (maximum six members per rink – triples) if they wish. All bookings are made through the Bowls Office by emailing: or calling 02 9426 1136 – leave a message and we will confirm your booking.

Two Greens will be available for use (Greens 2 and 3), the Powerhouse Green is currently under renovation. There will be a maximum of 42 people on a Green and no more than 6 members to a rink.

All members must enter through the Club’s Main Entrance as per the Club Rules. Bowling Members must be fully vaccinated and be able to provide evidence upon entry – in line with current NSW Public Health Orders. Masks will be required inside the Club.

All members must report to the Bowls Office (Powerhouse) to confirm you are present for your timeslot. Given we are bowling on the top two greens, all bowls bags are to be placed on the storage racks outside the Big Kahuna for those who do not want to walk them back and forth from the Powerhouse.  No Bags are to be left inside the club or in any walkway.

All Bowls activities will be revised on an ongoing basis.

There will be more information on 2021 Club Championships, State Pennant Finals and remaining Zone/State events in due course. The 2021 Bowls Presentation will be postponed until 2022 to allow Championships to be completed.

Other SJPBC Rules to abide by include:

  • All Bowls Mats and Jacks must be cleaned after use – staff will advise where to take your equipment upon completion of your session.
  • No Scoreboards are to be used – The Bowls Office can provide scorecards to those wanting to keep score.
  • Avoid touching other members bowls and other equipment.
  • Spray chalk only – no licking chalk to mark ‘touchers’ – it’s never been hygienic.
  • Ensure you maintain Social Distancing (1.5m).
  • Sanitise your hands before and after play – and throughout where appropriate.
  • Members are not permitted on the green outside of the allocated times.
  • Members will not be allowed entry into the Club before the Club’s opening hours – no exceptions.

These temporary rules are in place to protect the Club and protect our opportunity to Bowl. Failure to comply with the rules in place will result in disciplinary action being taken. I’m sure our members will work together to make this return a success. While this is a limited return to bowls – we will be reviewing our bowls activities on an ongoing basis and will update our members through noticeboards, Facebook and the Website.
