Just Bowl is the Bowls Development Alliance’s (BDA) community engagement product. It is designed to take the sport of bowls out in to the community. “For anyone, anytime, anywhere”. The product is a tool in the BDA’s wider commitment to raising participation within the sport of bowls.
The sport of bowls has a large and strong club structure and Just Bowl looks to support and enhance this structure, by engaging new participants within community settings such as Leisure Centres, Care Homes, Retirement and Community Spaces.
Just Bowl has a specific focus on:
- People aged 55 and over
- People with a disability aged 16 and over
These focuses are a part of the BDA’s organisational focus throughout their current Whole Sport Plan, funded by Sport England. Further information on the Bowls Development Alliance and the work towards the current Whole Sport Plan can be found here: http://www.playbowls.org/about-us
