Disability Bowls Development Workshop Saturday 1st December 2018


2 Bowls Coaching Staff from Oxford City & County Bowls Club and a further 7 Bowlers from Oxford, Bucks and Berks attended a workshop at Oxford City & County B.C. provided by George Babalev of the Bowls Development Alliance and Lee Smith from Disability Bowls England.


A general classroom element was followed by practical demonstration and practice on the Rinks, showing the great range of equipment that is available for the Disabled Bowler.
Many able-bodied bowlers purely think only of wheelchair users as being 'disabled' but the word covers a multitude of medical disabilities and this workshop showed that a great number of people, who think they might never be able to play a sport, could easily take up and be competitive at the Game of Bowls with help, coaching and training.
