End of season will be Fri 30th October
After some wear in corner 4 the committee have adopted a local rule that players can start GC games from 2 yards from corner 4 rather than 1 yard. See photo opposite.
In order to get the maximum use from the lawns, particularly that the days are beginning to draw in and that we only have the one lawn in use for the rest of this season, together with the continuing Covid restriction of a maximum of 6 players on the lawn, we would ask you to try and avoid leaving one hour gaps between bookings which seems to happen around lunch times. One hour sessions rarely get used!
Additionally we would encourage you to consider double banking to increase the number of people using the lawns. If you see that a time you would like to play has already been booked and double banking would not exceed the maximum of six players on the lawn, then please telephone the person who made the original booking to get their agreement for you to double bank. You should all have a copy of the Members contact list to find member telephone numbers.
We hope that this will allow as many members as possible to have access to the lawns.
