Dunholme Indoor Bowls Club  October 2019

 

Dunholme and District Indoor Bowls Club

The position as far as the Indoor Bowls Club is concerned is that (as with other indoor sports) our national governing body has to produce specific guidance for clubs to be able to re-open in a safe manner, which the Government must approve. The approved guidance is expected any day now, but it will take us a while to digest and make sure our own plans are in accordance with the guidance. Also there is work to be carried out on our heating and ventilation system to ensure a constant supply of fresh air is coming in to the building.

 Therefore we are aiming to re-open in the second half of August, initially on a reduced scale as we bed in changes to our existing procedures.

 All bowling sessions will have to be pre-booked, which means that any potential new members will not be able to simply turn up on a Saturday morning for our open sessions. For more information, please ring the club on 01673 861683 between 10 am and 3 pm on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

Welton Imps Walking Football Club

 Now in its fourth year, WIWFC has now introduced a Friday afternoon session at Manor Park, Welton LN2 3PA. The idea is that this is a less competitive session than others that we run, which is aimed primarily for the over 65s but it is actually ideal for anyone over 50 who perhaps has had little opportunity to play sport recently, or is recovering from injury or illness, or simply wants to give walking football a go. The first session is free and subsequently £2 for each game played but there is no additional joining or annual fee charged for playing. Spectating is free as is learning the rules and code of conduct and maybe officiating when someone is accused of running. Jocular banter is welcomed from all who attend as are anecdotes of previous football experiences or sporting incidents that are of interest and hopefully amusing.

 

 Skill and fitness levels vary but that doesn't matter as the rules are designed to allow players at all levels and abilities to fully participate in the game. The emphasis is on football, fun, fitness and friendship in no particular order. In fact, there has been a lot of evidence of increased health benefits for those who play regularly as it is a good cardiovascular workout at a gentle pace. However, it is as much a social as a sporting activity with most of the players going back to Welton Sports and Social Club after each game for a chat and a drink. Social interaction is another aspect of health benefit that has been recognised as a retirement necessity. If you fancy any of this please come along on Fridays at 2:45pm for an hour on the all weather 3G pitch at Welton Manor Park, which has good car parking, changing facilities if required including toilets and no mud, training shoes or astro turf shoes are recommended, the rest of the attire is what suits you. We provide bibs to identify sides and of course FOOTBALLS. We also have first aid equipment if necessary including a defibrillator, which hopefully will never be required!
