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!
Coronavirus - Club to Re-Open from Monday 3rd August

The WIBG Board are pleased to announce that Worthing Indoor Bowls Club will open for business but offering a reduced playing schedule for the rest of the Summer Season from 8:45 on Monday 3rd August.

PLEASE NOTE FROM THE 8 AUGUST YOU MUST WEAR A FACE MASK WITHIN THE CLUB PREMISES

In early July the Govt offered guidance allowing indoor sports venues to reopen for business. The Restaurant has been allowed to open for prior bookings on 4 Sundays - July 12th and 26th, and in August on the 9th and 23rd. More will be planned as long as we are happy you can be entertained safely.

The bowling green will open offering 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 which will commence on Weds 29th July. Full details of how the club has developed plans to operate as safely as we can in these difficult times is outlined below. If you go to the downloads page you will be able to print off the details 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 we do not have all the staff working and are limited by the number of hours that they are working.

The health and wellbeing of our members and visitors must be our highest Priority.
