Branksome Park Bowling Club are delighted to announce that they are the 2nd outdoor bowling club in the UK to have the new Bowlr module for outdoor clubs installed. It's allowing the return of their members after closure for Covid-19.
Bowlr is a cloud-based membership & league management system used in over 30 indoor & outdoor bowling clubs, built and maintained by B4B Software in Poole, Dorset. Thanks to Bowlr, members can now check rink availability wherever they are - on their phone, PC, laptop or tablet device. No more trips down to the steward’s hut or ringing the club to speak to the steward.
Over the coming year, the club will also be able to utilise even more functionality from the cloud-based Bowlr system for team selection, replacing the piece of paper being pinned up in the clubhouse.
Branksome Park Bowling Club treasurer, Ken Joy said: “Having Bowlr at our club will fundamentally change and improve the way we manage our club membership, leagues and rinks. We are extremely grateful to the wonderful team at Bespoke 4 Business Marketing who have worked with us to go live with Bowlr this month, which has enabled us to open our superb bowling club ahead of the other Poole outdoor bowling clubs. We look forward to using the cloud-based system even more next year when hopefully the coronavirus restrictions will be a thing of the past and we are able to resume competitive bowling once again”.
B4B Software managing director, Anthony Tilley said: “We are delighted to have been able to deploy Bowlr for Branksome Park Bowling Club so that members can get back to the greens. The idea behind Bowlr is to minimise administration in the running of both indoor and outdoor bowling clubs. We have numerous modules that can be bolted together to form a complete system so that paper diaries and spreadsheets can be a thing of the past.”
“With the current lockdown restrictions gradually being lifted, we are finding more and more outdoor bowls clubs are keen to use our online booking system so that members can book rinks online and social distancing at the clubs can be adhered to.”
