First and foremost, I must thank Bowls England for all the support they have given DBE and “One Team England” during the past 12 months, what everyone has achieved is amazing and the future looks very bright for the Outdoor game. As we start the indoor season the EIBA are supporting us as we make our sport totally inclusive and I am so pleased to see so many of our players playing for their clubs & counties in the Denny, Yetton Cups and have been selected for the Liberty Competition 2023/2024 and once again our Indoor National Finals will be played at the EIBA National Championships at Nottingham IBC in April 2024.
With every good news unfortunately comes bad news, we have been informed that Bowls Scotland have withdrawn from the Indoor Para Home Nations and we are working very hard to put in place two test matches against Wales & Ireland and are looking for other opportunities for our Performance Indoor Squad also the Para Outdoor Home Nations dates have been moved to 28-30 June 2024 (tbc) in Ayr. We will keep you updated once we things confirmed.
Our financial situation is still a big worry for the Trustees, and we will start to have to make cost cutting decisions, if we cannot increase our income to keep DBE afloat this will affect our ability to deliver the service to our membership and continue our campaign of total inclusivity across all codes of the sport.
Finally, I ask you all to support our competitions and events, last year we made a loss of £1000 on them because of increasing overhead cost and the lack of entries.
The Trustees and I really need your support to keep the DBE Bowls Family together, we have come along way these past 3 years and we still have much more to achieve!!!

Kind Regards
We are Stronger Together

Steve Watson
