a. Level 3 update
Under Level 3 there is really very little change as far as bowling club activity is concerned. Generally bowls clubs remain closed and no organised play is allowed.
Practice bowls (single person or within bubble) ONLY. Take own mats and jacks No access to club rooms
Each club will have their own way of managing thisPlease refer to the Covid 19 guidelines on the Bowls New Zealand website.
b. Mandatory reporting requirements
If bowling clubs are allowing their members to practise in their “bubbles” and after the bowling clubs open at a lower level, there are requirements for mandatory record keeping which have been extended from the previous record keeping in place prior to this most recent lockdown.The new requirements are more specific about what you as the owner/occupier of the premises must provide and keep record of, and these are spelt out in the notes provided by Sport New Zealand. There is a link at the end this article which has a number of questions and answers to assist you in understanding the process. At the end of the day you are not liable if any person refuses and it is not expected or required for you to turn people away. Your duty only goes as far as providing the systems and processes for the visitors to your club to comply.Here is a summary of the requirements with more details found on the Sport New Zealand link provided at the end of the article.At Alert Levels 2, 3 and 4, most organisations that are open must have systems and processes in place to ensure, as far as is reasonably practicable, that everyone 12 years or older who enters their workplace either:

This means more than just displaying the QR code and having a sign in sheet. It requires the person in charge of the organisation to have systems and processes in place to ensure that people do check in. It is also important to ensure any paper-based register is not left in a public-facing position where personal information is visible to others as this is a leading cause of COVID-19 related privacy breaches.
For the sport and recreation sector, this applies to:
If you are in doubt, it is recommended to provide record keeping.
