We are committed to ensuring our sport is diverse and inclusive, to enable everyone to have the opportunity to achieve their potential and for all players feel welcome irrespective of their background or circumstances. Bowls England, the English Indoor Bowling Association, British Crown Green Bowling Association and Disability Bowls England are working in collaboration with the Bowls Development Alliance on a new Equality, Diversity and Inclusion strategy.
Despite its uncomplicated nature, we understand that there are too many practical and perceived barriers to getting involved in our sport. We must be truly accessible to new players and tackle deep-rooted inequality in sports activity if we are to grow the numbers of new people engaging with our sport and the diversity of our participant base. We believe a diverse and inclusive sport promotes and sustains a sense of belonging, and we value and respect the talents, beliefs, backgrounds, and ways of living amongst our volunteers and participants.
Bowls is one sport, and we are committed to becoming more diverse and inclusive with a collaborative approach across our codes. By setting up a new Inclusion Advisory Group to support and guide us in the roll out of our future strategy, we hope to accelerate our work in this area and benefit from expertise that will educate us and shape our thinking.
