The BWBA is recognized as the governing body for wheelchair bowls in the UK. It is available to help bowlers, clubs, associations and anyone with the interest of the wheelchair bowlers at heart. It is a registered charity and has to raise all of its funds as it has no government or official funding. To carry on it relies on the generosity of others.

CP Sport LogoCerebral Palsy Sport

Bowls has always been part of Cerebral Palsy Sport and we have seen a lot of changes in the sport over the years. Cerebral palsy bowlers are welcomed into mainstream clubs, taking part in pan-disability or even mainstream competitions.

We are now looking to drive the sport further by developing a new programme of activities for Cerebral Palsy Sport members, with the aim of introducing ‘fresh blood’ to the sport.

This game is for all ages. In Sydney in Australia you will find plenty of young people playing the game – there is no reason why we can’t increase the number of young players coming in to the sport in this country.
