Bowls For People With Disabilities
Oundle Bowling Club believes bowls is for everyone, regardless of ability, and we encourage the participation of anyone who is living with a disability to play. Bowlers with a disability can compete with, or against, non-disabled bowlers in most situations. Bowls is one of the most accessible and integrated sports readily available to people of all ages.
In recent years the sport has become far more accessible to people with disabilities. We have assigned car parking for disabled bowlers and ramp access to the green. With the development of a specially designed wheelchair, it is possible to deliver a wood from a sitting position. The wheelchair supplied by Parahandy Ltd and funded by East Northamptonshire Council is designed to prevent damage to the green and is available for the use of members or visitors. Other aids are also available, including a bowling arm to assist those who have difficulty in bending to deliver their woods.
Our Club has been awarded the Disability Bowls England Certificate of Excellence which recognises that the Club has passed a comprehensive series of qualifying requirements in order to offer a first-class experience to bowlers with a disability.
Whether you are an existing bowler with a disability or if you have never tried bowls and have a disability, why not contact us? We would love to hear from you, and for you to get involved with Oundle Bowling Club and Disability Bowls England.
