Disability Bowls England Outdoor National Singles

Report from Disability Bowls England Outdoor National Singles

I played in the finals of the Disability Bowls England Outdoor National Singles at Leamington Spa but had to stay overnight for the early 10 am start.

8 players of different disabilities qualified to play. We were split into 2 groups of 4

I was the only Visually Impaired player.

My first match was against last years champion Mike Robertson (one arm) and just lost 13.11.

I then played Gary Swift (one arm) and lost 14.13

I then played against Paul Brown (one leg) and won 18. 6

In the end,  I came 2nd in my group on shots.

Mike Robertson 1st and plays in the final Paul Brown 3rd and Gary Swift 4th.

Overall very pleased to have played and competed so well against them.
