Pembroke Dock Bowling Club management committee have decided to postpone the opening day of the season, as the club have taken measures to limit spread of the Coronavirus pandemic.

The opening of Pembroke Dock Bowling Club’s 2020 bowling season, which was planned for Saturday, April 4, is postponed. 

In order to comply with the government’s advice, with regard to the avoidance of social contacts in order to limit the spread of coronavirus, the club’s Management Committee has taken, with difficulty, the decision to postpone the annual ceremony of “Opening Day”.

As in previous years, the club had planned to celebrate the opening of this year’s bowling season by asking someone, who has provided exceptional service to the club, to bowl the “Silver Jack”. 

A spokesperson said: “This year, the normal ceremony will not take place, or may be delayed; the management committee regrets the need for this decision.

Other bowling clubs in the county are liable to be similarly affected; in which case the county’s league fixtures will be disrupted.” 

The county’s bowling fraternity will be keeping their fingers crossed that there will be some bowling this year.
