Chairperson’s message,

By the time you are reading this months Newsletter, the “DBE Team England representative squad” would have arrived in South Africa and preparing for there first round of matches of the International Bowls for Disabled (IBD) World Cup Championships 2024. We wish them all the best of luck on and off the greens.

We would like to thank all our fabulous sponsors Aceit Sportswear, Sporting Highlights, Bush Hill Bowls , DM Sports Turf Solutions , English Bowls Association Charitable Trust and the many clubs, counties and family and friends that have made this self-funded trip possible without your help and the dedication of the squad to fundraise these past 15 months, there would be no “Team England” at these World Bowls Disability Championships.

I had the pleasure of visiting Bournemouth Bowling club to support our BOWRA Buddies and Military Veter-ans group who play on a bi-weekly basis to welcome Bush Hill Bowls present two special “green friendly” wheelchairs to Mark Bowra MBE who accepted the wheelchairs on behalf of Bournemouth Bowling Club and who demonstrating how the group interact on the bowling green and help to build confidence, provide gentle exercise and camaraderie between colleagues with similar challenges.

We have had the Bowls England Bowls Big Weekend with over 600 events across England and I hope many of you were out in force to showcase how inclusive our sport is and help generate more new players with a disability to join the Bowls Family.

Early June we start our outdoor competitions events to see who qualifier for the Bowls England National Championships 2024 at Royal Leamington Spa. I look forward to seeing many of you over the next few months, keep the good news coming!!
