UPDATE 21 JUNE 2020 THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS
Firstly we hope you are all keeping fit and well and that you are all being looked after by your families, friends and neighbours. The Board are aware that some of the members of the club have passed away during the close down and we send our heartfelt love and support to their Families and Friends. It may well be there are others who we are not aware of but rest assured the sentiment remains the same.
As far as the reopening of Indoor Bowls is concerned we are currently awaiting notification from the government and E.I.B.A. as to when and how Indoor Bowling becomes possible from a Health and Safety and viability level.
The probable procedure for the reopening of the club will be
1: Government Announcement – Indoor Bowls is safe to play in the numbers possible to make it viable.
2: Egerton Park Board – Reviews that decision and plans for the future.
3: Action going forward from that review.
The Club will not reopen immediately after a Government Announcement, this is because time must be given for the review and for the setting up of the reopening with Health and Safety, viability and organisation in mind, this will include the re introduction of the currently Furloughed Staff.
The above is not set in stone due to the restrictions that may be imposed on us by the Government and the consideration to the viability of doing so. The situation is totally fluid therefore it makes it impossible for the Board to announce concrete proposals.
The Board truly hopes that we can open sooner rather than later but all will depend on our number one priority the safety of our members and on how close we can get to the game we know and love.
Keep safe and we hope this has helped you to see some light at the end of the tunnel, we will be back.

We were pleased to be able to offer his service for the fourth time but PLEASE NOTE, the club has no plans to open again until we open full time in the future. All members of staff remain furloughed. Watch this space and keep safe.
