Bowls for the disabled is an integral part of the bowls culture, here at Tamworth & District Indoor Bowls Club.
Wheelchair access is provided throughout the Club, along with various types of bowling aids. Special wheelchairs can be loaned for use on the rinks.
Coaching is an important facility in our Club, and we have highly experienced coaches who can help to teach you the game of bowls if you are interested in playing the sport. If you are already a disabled bowler, you may be interested in joining EALABA, the English Amputee & Les Autres (the others) Bowls Association.
Our Tamworth Club is the home base of EALABA. A number of full members of our Club are also members of EALABA and DBE (Disability Bowls England).
Irrespective of your disability, and your bowls experience or ability, you will be welcomed in the Club. You can compete at whatever level you wish, from friendly 'roll-ups' to playing with disabled International players. You will also be able to play along with any and all Club members at whatever level you feel comfortable.
Within our Club, we have a Disabled World Championship bowls silver medallist; Commonwealth Games bronze medallist and two England Internationals.
Whether your disability is physical, neurological, visual or other, you will receive a warm welcome here at Tamworth & District Indoor Bowls Club.
