The Bowls Development Alliance, Bowls England,
Disability Bowls England and the English Indoor Bowling Association, who
together form the Bowls Disability Steering Group, are delighted to
announce the new launch of the Love Fisher Brown Award.
The 2018 Love Fisher Brown Award, sponsored by
Factory Eleven, was created to recognise clubs that provide disabled
participation opportunities for their bowlers. This award, named after
the remarkable and inspiring Commonwealth Games achievements of Bob
Love, David Fisher and Paul Brown, showcases the excellent work being
undertaken by clubs with disabled bowlers around the country, and
provide a benchmark for other clubs to aspire to.
Peter Gray from
Factory Eleven said of the Love Fisher Brown Award: “Factory Eleven
are delighted to be sponsoring the Love Fisher Brown Award 2018. To be
associated with an award which seeks to identify, recognise and rewards
clubs providing participation opportunities for disabled young people
and adults sits perfectly alongside our own company values of
inclusivity and sport for all. BowlsParc has proven to be a very popular
resource for bowls clubs and coaches to date and we hope that this
year’s award recipients enjoy using the BowlsParc equipment we are
providing, unlocking further opportunities for social, fun and inclusive
