This was a new event for the DBE in York Indoor Bowls Club and it is hoped that further events may follow. Attendees showed enthusiasm for a Regional League so we will watch to hear what may follow. The York event was one of five being held on the same day at various venues across the UK. Any person registered disabled is entitled to join Disability Bowls England and play in it’s tournaments (see https://www.disabilitybowlsengland.org.uk/).
