Worthing Indoor Bowls Club

NEWS UPDATED HERE REGULARLY

Despite the enforced shutdown of all leisure facilities by the Gov.uk regulations we at WIBC have been very busy throughout the summer with our planned programme of maintenance and improvement. The Lounge and Bar have been redecorated and partially re-carpeted. Important renovations have been made to the cooling system in the bar cold store. Worn stretches of tarmac have been stripped and replaced. A new disabled parking space and an area for mobility scooters have been created.

The whole club has been deep cleaned inside and out - it has been a very busy time as we made sure the club is as good as it can be for you when we reopen in August.

Once the winter season starts we plan to have all our usual sessions in place from roll ups, charity sessions, spoons and aggregates to friendlies home and away with other clubs. A complete programme catering for bowlers of all ages and abilities will be available.

Competitions, from Nationals through County to Club level will be ready to enter and play.


As a thank you for your loyalty the WIBG Board have reduced subs for 2020-21 to a flat £100 for one year only.

WE LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU ALL AGAIN SOON - WE'VE MISSED YOU!
IMPORTANT & VERY GOOD NEWS: Following the Govt announcement of 9/9/20, we have now received confirmation from our national Governing body, the EIBA, that we may continue to offer the service as presently available.

IMPORTANT - DO NOT LEAVE ANSWERPHONE MESSAGES AS THESE CANNOT BE ACTED UPON AT THIS TIME

PLEASE WEAR A FACE MASK WHEN YOU ENTER THE CLUB PREMISES
- FOLLOW CLUB REGULATIONS THEREAFTER

It is almost certain that once we open 5 rinks we will have to wear masks as a mitigation against reduced social distancing

We are following Government Guidelines in our plans and from September the Restaurant and Bar will be open every Sunday for pre-booked meals. Bookings must be made directly with the kitchen. 01903 959764. We will also offer breakfast just for pre-booked bowlers on Saturday mornings

The bowling green will offer a reduced Summer playing schedule and number of rinks. Initially we will open for bowling Monday to Friday offering 3 x 2 hour sessions, 0900-1100, 1130-1330 and 1400-1600. If you want to bowl you will have to use our telephone booking system on 01903 241586 which is operational Monday through Friday 10-11 am.

Go to the downloads page and you will be able to print off the details of our plans for safe bowling, which have been stored as PDF documents. More information is available on the news pages.

During this time please look out for email notifications. If you know members without emails please talk to them. We will attempt to let everyone know the current situation, but contacting each individual by phone is time consuming for our hard pressed team and updates by post is not a realistic option. I have already stretched out staff team as much as I can to safely supervise the bowling sessions. I will be looking for volunteer green stewards soon so that we can increase what we can offer.

The health and well-being of our members and visitors must always be our highest Priority.
