Rink Bookings - members are asked to ensure that where a rink is no longer required, especially for National bookings, that the booking is removed from the diary. This will ensure that we can make the best use of spare rinks for rearranged leagues or to allow members to book roll-ups.
Members are also reminded that rinks must be booked for all games, even for a roll-up on an empty rink. Please ensure that rinks are booked via the Bowlr system in advance of your game or on arrival at the club via the monitor by the office.
