Bowls is a game for all ages and abilities and it is rare that a physical or visual impairment will prevent anyone from competing. The club has members who have represented their country at the Commonwealth Games and Paralympics and others who are involved in Regional Teams.
The club has three wheelchairs specially designed to go on the bowls green including one battery powered chair. In addition, the club has a number of bowling aids available for anyone who struggles physically to bend at the hip or knee; has back problems or muscle weakness. These include bowling arms and bowls lifter. We also have the equipment to assist players with visual impairment.
Bowls is a gentle sport and can be an excellent way to get fit or fitter. Our qualified coaches will be more than happy to help you identify the bowls and equipment that suits you. People new to the club are offered four free coaching sessions, please ring to book your place.
