Bowls Wiltshire – Supporting Inclusion
On 18th Sep Bowls Wiltshire will be hosting a DBE, Disability Bowls England, event to showcase how clubs can support people to play bowls with a variety of impairments. DBE members will be showing their skills on the green at Devizes from 2pm.
To further support Clubs, BW will be hosting the Coach Bowls Inclusion Module which is described below:
“This 2 hour online module helps clubs, volunteers and coaches look at how they can make their club accessible to all bowlers, regardless of ability, mobility, disability, age and so on.
The module provides the information to help clubs recognise that any member may need some additional support or some adaptations at times, even through injury! It will help to highlight areas that a club can build on to help attract new bowlers and enhance existing members experiences.”
There is a Zoom session on 11th Sep at 2pm and a practical demonstration on 18th Sep at 2pm at Devizes Bowls Club.
This module costs £25 per person and BW is offering a £10 Grant per person towards the costs which can be claimed after completing the course. To book on the course please follow the link below:
The course has been commissioned for the benefit of BW clubs primarily, however if there are spare places then these will be offered to other clubs outside Wiltshire, without the grants of course!
