Bowls Wiltshire Youth Academy announcement

Bowls Wiltshire is delighted to announce details of their new County Youth Academy.

The BW Youth Academy has been formed to provide young bowlers, aged 18 years or under, with the opportunity to train and play with other youth athletes across Wiltshire.

Our aim is to encourage, support and develop our young players to be the best bowlers they can be, enjoy their sport and prepare them to be able to represent their county in the future.

The Academy will be coach led and through organised sessions and games seeks to:

  • foster and develop team spirit
  • develop and enhance practical bowling skills
  • broaden and develop players’ knowledge of the game
  • highlight why young people are so important to the future of Bowls Wiltshire
  • identify and prepare players for our County Amy Rose and White Rose teams, and potentially the Bowls England Youth Academy and International teams of the future.

Announcing the launch, Coach and Bowls Development Officer, Nigel Morgan said:

“Our start has been somewhat delayed and overshadowed by the backdrop of the past year, but we are still all very excited about the new Academy and keen to get back on the green and see our young bowlers enjoying their game.  Our team of coaches and officials are looking forward to welcoming everyone.”

Unfortunately due to the ongoing pandemic, the county has had to delay its plans for a large formal launch event until a later date.  This event will be supported by Ellen Falkner MBE (World/Commonwealth Gold Medallist and Coach Bowls Coach.

In the meantime, the Academy team are moving ahead with their plans to hold regular meets across the county, to bring young bowlers together for practice exercises and games.

The first session is being held at Trowbridge Westbourne B.C. on Saturday 14th August at 1.30pm

We still need to be careful and maintain social distancing for everyone’s comfort and safety.  Plans are being put in place to ensure that all events are conducted with the safety and welfare of all attendees as the uppermost priority.  It may prove necessary to limit numbers, so to aid planning and avoid disappointment we are asking that anyone interested in attending, register as soon as possible.

Going forward it is planned to hold regular county wide outdoor and indoor training throughout the calendar year.  Where possible, additional coordinated sessions will be held within local areas subject to numbers of junior members.

A new County Youth Administrator (Sue Fletcher) has been appointed to liaise with clubs, act as a point of contact for Youth Academy members across the county and coordinate the administration of training sessions and events.

A successful Open Day at Chippenham Park BC

On a glorious sunny day the members of Chippenham Park Bowls Club opened the club to give people a friendly introduction to the game of bowls. We had a very busy morning with 20 people attending with ages ranging from 11 years to 55 years of age.

The afternoon saw us equally as busy with another 16 people attending. The feedback from people was encouraging and we are hoping to see many return for our afternoon and evening roll ups.

A big thank you to everybody that made the day the huge success it was. With the enthusiasm shown by the youngsters that attended we are hoping to run a Saturday morning session to cater for them.

All photos taken on the day are on the Chippenham Park Bowls Club web site.

Return to Play: Step One

Bowls England have today(26/03/2021) published their Return to Play guidance for STEP 1.

The information below and the links cover the Guidance as from the 29th March with STEP 2 expected prior to the next stage of the Government’s Roadmap on April 12th.

Bowls England:

The return of sport and physical activity is vital to the physical and mental health of the nation, and we know our sport has a big role to play in providing an opportunity for outdoor activity as the lockdown restrictions ease.

The government’s roadmap to ease lockdown restrictions in England consists of four steps, and lawn bowls as an outdoor sport may resume from Monday 29th March (Step 1).

We have also produced a risk assessment template that clubs can utilise to assist them in re-opening safely, and will circulate further information next week on the support available through our ‘Back to Bowls’ work in conjunction with the Bowls Development Alliance.

Please note that the guidance covers the period up until Step Two, when we expect restrictions to be eased further.
