Welcome to the BowlsWales website, which launches a new era for Bowls in Wales.
The website, along with our other communication methods will aim to raise the profile of bowls as a “lifetime sport for all”.
BowlsWales has been set up to be the co-ordinating body for Bowls in Wales, with our mission to ensure that we are an inclusive sport that enables everyone to start, stay and succeed at all levels of the sport. We have an exciting opportunity to change the future of our sport in Wales with a new governance and management structure to effectively manage, develop and grow our sport.
Volunteers responsible to help administer the new website are all too aware of the challenges facing Bowls in Wales in the near future. Andrew Hopkins, a current international player is enthused by the launch of BowlsWales:
“Bowls is a fantastic sport to be involved in at all levels, it is truly inclusive. Where we let ourselves down is telling people about it.
We don’t sell the game to anyone. BowlsWales is a magnificent opportunity to change this”.
A key role of BowlsWales will see emphasis on communications to enhance the image and profile of the sport, with information provided through this website and other communication channels.
Regular updates will provide information on a range of topics such as getting involved, by uploading videos on themes such as kit and equipment. A regular slot will be kept for a build up to the Commonwealth Games, as well as news items linked to our social media platforms.
Over the coming weeks the website will be populated with further details about the makeup of the Board and volunteers as well as details of our first competition.
Chair of BowlsWales Alun Jones welcomed the launch of the new website, saying “I’m delighted that we are launching our website within a matter of months of setting up BowlsWales, this is a real landmark for us.”
