The BBC has produced a list of the top socially distanced experiences available to the general public this summer with Lawn Bowls featuring on the list.

Specifically the aricle states;

"With people now looking for alternative sports that allow them to maintain social distance and play outside, the non-contact activities of bowls and golf are firmly back on the agenda. Before lockdown, an incresing number of young peoplehad been taking up lawn bowls - once the domain of elderly men and women dressed in white.

Now Bowls England says the coming weeks and months are "an opportunity" for those "who currently don't play, to give bowls a try".

However, there are strict rules. Empty rinks are to be kept between players, clubhouses must remain closed except for essential access, for example, the use of toilets and washing facilities, and equipment must be cleaned before, during and after play".

The full list of activities can be viewd at https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-53417675

Somerton & District Bowls Club welcomes enquiries from anyone wishing to try out the Sport.
