Chairpersons message,

Wow – what a 10-day rollercoaster ride of emotions I had at the commonwealth games not only did Team England come away with 7 medals, we were also able to showcase disability bowls on the world stage – Judy did 4 radio interviews – I also had a meeting with the Commonwealth Games Federation Director of para Sports, World bowls Ltd, World Bowls Gold Coast 2023, Commonwealth Games 2026, Sport England, Team England, Bowls New Zealand, Canada, Australia, South Africa and Head Director of Events & show production for CWG Bowls & Para Bowls 2022.

We have had enquiries from at least 6 potential new members who having seen the Bowls on the television want to give the game a go themselves, and lots of positive feedback from individuals and clubs about our members, as well as praise from John McGuinness the High-Performance Director of Bowls England for their professional attitude and commitment.

I was very lucky to receive every session in the Paid Ticket Ballot and had the pleasure of watching every single bowl our Para Team played, I have shared the high’s & lows over the past 18 months and look forward to welcoming and supporting our DBE members in the upcoming Bowls England National Championships and Para Outdoor Home Nations.

I am very honoured and proud to call myself Chairperson of Disability Bowls England

“We are Stronger Together”
