CoBPC is now open

We’re on the piste again!

The Playing Group have been working closely with LSC and we are delighted to announce the Club  re-opened its doors for Restricted Play on Saturday the 4th July.

We have put in place a series of measures to safeguard access to LSC, our Club grounds, and of course the safety of our members. These measures are based on our own COVID-19 Risk Assessment (here) and using this and the Petanque England guidelines we have produced a set of Club specific Rules for LSC (here). Acceptance of these is a pre-condition for return to Restricted Play at the Club.

These measures are aimed at making our members as safe as possible; however, it is for individuals to decide if they wish to play based on personal circumstances. Members play at their own risk.

Initially we only opened for Saturday morning Club sessions, but now we are confident our new operating processes are working correctly we have extended this to include Tuesday mornings. The new norm means that we are limiting the number of available pistes per session and this has a knock-on effect on the number of members attending each session (currently a maximum of 30). To manage this we have instituted a booking system here.

BANES have now accepted our Risk Assessment for Queen Square and Wednesday Club sessions resumed on the 5th August. Play here is also restricted, with a separate set of operating rules and procedures. Queen Square session sizes are limited to a maximum of 24 players and operates with an autonomous booking system here.

After three months of lockdown we are delighted the Club is fully open again and running sessions at both venues. These are proving to be extremely popular and are heavily subscribed, so if you’ve not attended one of our new Restricted Play sessions do come along as we are looking forward to seeing you again. But remember we are operating a strict ‘no book, no play’ policy; you cannot turn-up on the day and expect to play.

At present we cannot accept visitors without prior arrangement, so please use the Contact Us menu if you require any information about the Club and our facilities.
