Malaga Region-Phase 1 @ 18th May.

Updated: May 16

The Malaga region has been granted Phase 1 status in relation to the COVID 19 restrictions and we can commence bowling on Tuesday 19th for those without underlying health issues.

Please read the latest FEB and CSD Guidelines below.

Our Maintenance man Juan Jimenez has procured the dispenser/fluids and protective equipment and will conduct the first sanitisation per the requirements on Monday. I will be at the club with Juan to agree the processes and scope required.

Please note that we will not be opening up the clubhouse during the remainder of Phase 1 so members should bring their own water/drinks and glasses until further notice.

Our own club rules are complete to ensure the safety of our members and these have been emailed to members and posted one our home page.

A copy will be available at the club house along with safety notices.

All rink bookings restricted to Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays to reduce the costs and allow the time for the sanitisation work to be performed by Juan.

Play will be restricted to 3 or 4 rinks of pairs with morning and afternoon sessions available to us during phase 1 Contact John Wilson for rink bookings and should you suffer any symptoms. It is likely we will move to triples as we progress through the phases.

Consider sticking to the same social groups to minimise the risk of cross contamination.

Remember to carry your federation cards when at the club.

FAB/FEB document follows. (this is also on the home page.
