Braid Booking Guide

As indicated in the guidance given on re-opening the Green for play the following procedures are intended to ensure the safety of members by maintaining social distancing and avoiding this being put at risk by large numbers arriving and leaving at the same time.

Three Rinks only will be in use Rinks 1, Rink 3, and Rink 5 with empty rinks between.
(Rinks actually in use may change from day to day or weekly, but remain designated as 1, 3, 5)

Booking of these rinks will be within a 2 hour slot running 10-12, 12-2, 2-4, 4-6, 6-8 for all days with the exception of Monday when booking will not be possible before 12 to allow the Hit Squad to operate freely.
Within these slots there will be staggered arrival and departure times as shown in the following table:

Rink Arrival at Club Departure from Club Play time*
1 On the hour 25 mins past hour 1 hour 25 mins
3 15 mins past hour 20 mins before hour do
5 30 mins past hour 5 mins before hour do
*Max play time after accounting for staggered arrival and departure is shown as 1 hour and 25 minutes but within this is included down time disinfecting mats and jacks before and after play.

Remember also when making your booking that all players on the rink should be declared and that everyone should have confirmed their acceptance of the conditions of access to the Green during this phase of the easing of the lockdown.


The booking system used (SKEDDA) is a professional piece of software and very user friendly.
However, you may wish first to consult this brief Online Booking Guide (PDF) to get an initial idea of how to make a booking.
