Coronavirus Update – 17th October 2020

Dear Member

We have been advised that the RBWM council are very concerned as to the “the COVID cases increasing at a worrying and alarming rate.”

(Latest data shows there are 110.9 cases per 100,000 in the borough, with 168 cases new cases reported for the week of 5-11 October).

The Council are therefore planning to formally to ask the Government, to move RBWM from the current status of Tier One- Medium Risk, to Tier Two – HIGH RISK next week.

If the RBWM is reclassified as Tier 2, as seems highly likely, then this action will inevitably result in the closure of all indoor bowls clubs in England for a limited period.

The threat of imminent closure, together with today learning that one of our playing members has been tested positive for COVID-19, has led the Management Team to recommend CLOSURE of the DESBOROUGH BOWLING CLUB ON A TEMPORARY BASIS FOR 14 DAYS, EFFECTIVE AS FROM SATURDAY 17TH OCTOBER until Monday 2nd NOVEMBER.

This closure is considered necessary to mitigate any potential risk and possible spread of the virus and the decision will be reviewed again at the end of the month.

Our members health and well-being is of paramount importance and, whilst we very much regret this action, the Management Team consider that circumstances now dictate that we have no option at this time.

We will continue to implement the COVID- Secure measures at the Club, which have to date been successful in mitigating any risk to our members and look forward to resuming bowling on the 2nd November.

Congratulations to the Desborough Bowls Club Summer Competition Winners

Desborough Bowls Club had a shortened summer season due to the Coronavirus, but with correct social distancing the club managed to play some matches and had a summer competition of singles and pairs, and invited other local clubs to take part.  There were over 200 entries in the 11 different competitions, and although no cups were awarded to the winners, they did receive some prize money!  The winners of the Club Mens and Ladies Championships were Bruce Adams and Gina Braddock.

Club Update – 11th August 2020

It’s a busy time at Desborough Bowling Club getting ready for the re-opening of the Indoor Bowls season starting from 1st September 2020.

We are very fortunate in having the room to successfully introduce social distancing within all areas (2.0M) together with informative and directional signage, perspex screens and sanitation points.

All signs etc. are now being installed, in accordance with the Government’s and EIBA Guidelines, to ensure the whole club premises are “COVID secure” ready for the return of our club members on the 1st September.
