With 32 available two-hour slots spread over seven days a week, the club is able to offer plenty of opportunities to bowl for its hundreds of members.

Although limited to using only three rinks per session at present to allow for social distancing, together with rigorous sanitising of equipment, the club is confident that it can offer a safe bowling environment for its members.

It is hoping to re-design the green to allow four rinks to be used in the near future, which will increase availability even further.

For the first month, playing has been limited to general play, aggregates and a few matches against fairly local clubs, but from the beginning of November all the club league teams will be re-starting.

So far this season, six matches have been played.

The latest match, played on Saturday, was against local rivals Worthing Pavilion IBC.

Played on their home green, Worthing emerged the winners by 64-38, largely thanks to a very strong win by the rink of Brenda Pannell, Neil Attwood and skip Chris Turner, who trounced the visitors by 31-6.

Pavilion did have the consolation of winning on one rink when Tina Durant, Seamus McCabe and Ray Baker were beaten by 20-15.

The club is in a position to accept new members, the club is situated at 1, Field Place, The Boulevard, Worthing, BN13 1NP, and can be contacted on 01903 240226.
