Everyone has ability!
Para bowls offers opportunities for Canadians with a disability where they can play and compete in lawn bowls. A sport for all, lawn bowls offers accessible and integrated activities.
Bowlers with a visual impairment are paired with a Director who serves as an aid to help direct the bowler on aim and distance.
There are many aids available for bowlers with ambulatory disabilities, including specialized delivery aids and carpets or boards for wheelchairs.
Recently recognized as the national body for para bowls, Bowls Canada is hard at work developing programs for implementation in clubs across the country. This includes coach and volunteer training resources as well as “Learn to” programming.
Many clubs across the country are already running specific programming for bowlers with disabilities. Contact your local club to see what programming is available.
