Welcome to the Braid Bowling Club web site. We hope that members and prospective members will find that it serves as a useful reference point for information about the club.

Re-opening the Green - Mon 3rd May

A warm welcome to all members back to the Green and the new 2021 season of bowling at Braid!

With the easing of Scottish Government restrictions from Level 4 to Level 3 on 26th April, the Club re-opens for play on Monday 3rd May.

As we are all aware, the Pandemic is not yet over, and Covid may be with us in some form for some time yet. However we have had the benefit of a year's experience of dealing with the virus, and importantly, most if not all members will have the re-assurance of having had 2 doses of vaccination.

It is intended to re-open cautiously with arrangements similar to those operating last year. But assuming we move successfully through the different Levels of opening up nationally, the Club Committee will keep the situation at Braid under close review with an eye to providing more bowling opportunities whenever possible.

We hope to run club competitions, and in time start hat nights and points sessions. Although external competitions are currently not permitted in Level 3 by Bowls Scotland it is anticipated that this may change should the intended move from Level 3 to Level 2 go ahead on 17th May as projected. In anticipation of this the Edinburgh Bowling Association is planning on starting a Wednesday Triples League as from 19th May.

We trust that in this changed context more members will feel confident enough to get on the green as much as possible and have an enjoyable bowling season.

If you have not already done so please check out the Guidance and Procedures for bowling at Braid in 2021. Once you have confirmed acceptance of these you can proceed to the Booking Guide where you will find out how to make a booking.

Wishing you "all the best" for an enjoyable season of bowling at Braid!
