Greens opening for play

Monday 19th April 2021

A message from Club president John robinson

Dear Fellow Bowling Member,

I trust you are all safe and in good health. Just to keep you updated for this year’s bowls. Some good news is we seem to be gradually coming back to some normality for the forthcoming season.

The directors are planning for greens being opened from Monday 19 April with play commencing via a booking system. Please call the following number to book a rink 07394 916943. We are all desperate to meetup and socialise, enjoying our bowls once again. Something positive to look forward to.

During the lockdown, the club has taken the opportunity to give our clubhouse a complete refurbishment. New carpets have been fitted throughout the club. New lockers have been installed in the gents changing room. A complete renovation has been carried out, and we are certain that you will be pleased with the work carried out and the result.

This year at the online AGM it was agreed that the fees for this year would remain the same as last year with no increase, at the same time the club recognised that some members had little opportunity to play as often as we would have had in previous years, and so it was decided in appreciation of their loyalty, members will be offered an optional discount of 30%.

This discount is optional as some members have indicated and realising the situation for the club due to the pandemic, with no opportunity to generate income other than some government grants which will not be available this year, so financially this year could be difficult for the club. So, they have decided to pay the full amount.
As fees are now due for this year, this amounts to £185, or if you wish £130 with the optional discount. If you have been a member since before 2000 (and are of Senior age) then the figure would be £165 or £116 with the optional discount.
Payment can be either by cheque addressed to Uddingston Bowling & Tennis Club, or direct bank payment to the club’s subscription account which is as follows:

Sort Code 80-09-93
Account number 00109543

Anyone who may be experiencing financial problems due to the covid virus can contact Eddie and he will arrange a payment plan to suit your personal circumstances, or if the above method of payment is not suitable to your requirements call Eddie on 07946132780 and he will make the necessary arrangements with you.
We look forward to seeing you on the green or in the club house soon.

Yours in sport
John Robinson
Club President 2021
