At their meeting on the 15th January 21, the Bowls Wiltshire Executive appointed Richard Ball as their Disability Bowls Coordinator. Richard is a Level 2 Coach and bowls at Stratton Churchway. He will report to the BW Development Officer, Nigel Morgan and work closely with Mo Monkton who is the Development and Performance Manager for Disability Bowls England.
At our inaugural meeting we discussed how to move this initiative forward and the first thing we decided was to send out a questionnaire to clubs (attached) to establish whether clubs, have members with disabilities, what bowls equipment they have, what disability facilities they currently have and whether clubs would be prepared to support Disability Bowls.
Could I ask you to complete the attached questionnaire and return to Richard by the 28th February so that BW can start the process of making bowls inclusive and accessible.
We are exited to be working alongside Disability Bowls in England and hope that clubs will work with us to make Bowls available to all.
