2. People with pre-existing health conditions should stay away
3. Wash hands (or use hand gel provided by the club) before and after playing
4. No exchange of food or drink
5. We should limit the play to 2/3 sessions allowing up to 18 players per session in 3 separate groups.
6. On Saturdays the first session starts at 10.00 am.
7. Use pistes 2, 4 and 6 only to help maintain the 1/2 metre rule
8. Play can be singles, doubles or triples observing the 1/2 metre rule
9. Use your own boules and jack
10. No rings or scoreboards (apart from personal ones)
11. Don't congregate afterwards
12. Toilet facilities available in the AGM building from 8th August.
