Review of Bowls in Wales

On behalf of BowlsWales and the National Governing Bodies for the Indoor, Outdoor, Short Mat and Crown Green forms of the game, I am pleased to announce that we have commissioned an independent review of the sport in Wales. This will be a wide ranging and independent review, covering multiple areas including:

•Governance

•Structure

•Communications

•Safeguarding

•Development

•Performance

•Coaching and officiating

•PR and marketing

•Equality, diversity and inclusion

We have commissioned Counsel Ltd (www.counselltd.com) to undertake the review on our behalf. We expect the review to take around 4-5 months to complete, though it may need longer. We are committed to making sure that this review is both comprehensive and inclusive. To this end, we plan to run a survey of bowlers and other interested stakeholders followed by a series of interviews, focus groups and public meetings to hear your views.
