On Wednesday 16th September Fairlight Bowls Club had the great pleasure of playing a match against Sussex County Bowls at Fairlight. Weather conditions were perfect, and as usual the Green looked brilliant. It was a close match with Fairlight winning by 50 points to 44 points (2 rinks to 1 rink). All those taking part or watching really enjoyed the afternoon. Following the match, their President (Roger Day) thanked our club for a great afternoon and presented our President with the pennant showed alongside this note. They also gave us a donation.
Thank you to everybody who took part and showed what a fantastic Club we have here at Fairlight

FBC Competitions Rules 2020
The draws for the competitions will be on our website today. Please stick to the play by dates. To keep people involved we will be running a plate competition for each of the formats. All losing players in the preliminary round and the first round will be entered into a new draw immediately after completion of the first round.
Remember this is for fun - enjoy yourselves!
The green is now open for play to all members subject to the guide lines set down by the Government and contained in the “Rules for Bowling at the club sent out by the Captains on 16 May 2020. Don’t forget to book your rink if you wish to play; the details of which are on the Club’s web site. This should help everyone to keep to the social distancing rule. Sanitizers have been supplied at the club to try and keep everyone safe.
Let us hope that the rules are relaxed a little more in the future to enable more of us to once again enjoy our club and the game of bowls.
Please do not hesitate to contact me or one of the captains if any of the above is not clear.
18 May 2020
You must book a rink as below:
One person will open up the gate, the clubhouse and the toilet block. Hand sanitiser will be available after handling keys.
Players must bring their equipment for each game and change shoes outside. Do not use lockers. Dress is optional except for shoes which must be bowls shoes.
Please use the mats that are in the bowl of soapy water replace them after use and top up with water if required. Do not use detergent as this could damage the green.
The game will be played with your own woods and the jack(s). No other equipment is required and the equipment shed should not be used. Move your starting point around to minimise wear. Each players’ woods should be either side of the rink. You should not handle other players’ woods. Bowl a wood and step away. Only one player touches the jack (place one on completion of each end). If you wish to keep score, bring a pen and paper. At the end of your game disinfect the jack(s) with the spray provided.
The clubhouse is not to be used except for accessing keys and jacks. The toilet block should only be used in emergencies and wipe all surfaces after use with disinfectant supplied. If you need refreshments please bring your own.
At the end of a session please leave keeping to social distancing rules. Last person out make sure the jacks are away, any keys are disinfected and returned, lock the clubhouse and gate. Wash your hands asap.
We hope these rules work for you. If you have any suggestions please let us know. We will update as we have any more information from the government or Bowls England.
Please abide by the rules and maybe they can be relaxed in the near future.
