BOWLS FOR LIFE
(See Noticeboard for times and venue)
CSW Sport are in partnership with Health Trusts and the National Governing Bodies of Bowls to promote greater physical activity across the sub-region. Bowls as a sport can be played across all ages, cultures, faiths, social classes and has a range of rule sets that will accommodate all levels of aspirations.
But did you know...
Playing Bowls regularly has significant health benefits such as promoting flexibility, suppleness, fitness and stamina. It is ideal for the older person who (perhaps) would struggle with some types of sporting activity, and excellent for people who have health problems or body image issues where more rigorous activity is unrealistic.
Most Bowls clubs have a really active social scene. From barbeques to quiz nights, dances to celebrations in the clubhouse, bowls members have extended friendship networks and fairly full social calendars. Clubs are often situated in very attractive environments. There has been significant feedback from participants who have found that being a part of this vibrant social network has helped them through some very difficult times in their lives.
A number of targeted Leisure Centre’s and Bowls Clubs are piloting "ring-fenced" sessions for those individuals who have a desire to become more active in their daily lives. Each of the participating facilities have additional activity and social programmes for those participants who wish to engage further, as well as Bowls instruction. (There is a small attendance charge (£2-£2.50) per visit.
In the course of your duties if you become aware of individuals who may benefit by being more active then please suggest they consider this opportunity.
I have attached details of those clubs across the sub region who are offering this facility in this pilot scheme. If yourself or any of your contacts want any further information or have any questions please contact me.
