Getting ready!

The recent spell of pleasant weather provided an opportunity for both the Bowls and Tennis sections to prepare for the restrictions on outdoor sports to be lifted.

The bowls section have treated the green with both a fertiliser and moss treatment. The latter has given the green a rather dark look but that is to be expected.

Bowling grren looking a little dark after moss treatment.

Meanwhile the tennis section have been cleaning the courts. Again, moss is the problem. To really clean the court surface a powerful jet washer was hired. This has a rotating head with multiple jets. The machine is slowly pushed over the courts, cleaning a stripe on each pass. Really stubborn parts can be give an extra clean using the lance which is also used to jet the resulting dirt to the edges of the courts.
