The EIBA is pleased to acknowledge the following Official Partners
THE 2019 LOVE FISHER BROWN AWARD OPENS FOR
2018 Love Fisher Brown Award Winners - Rookery
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.
Love Fisher Brown Award, sponsored by Para Handy and Drakes Pride, 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.
Andy Semple from Para Handy said of the
Love Fisher Brown Award: “We have been lucky enough to witness
first-hand the incredible positive impact of disabled bowlers on the
sport of bowling. That is why we at Para-Handy Bowling Wheelchairs are
honoured to be associated with the Love-Fisher-Brown award.”
All clubs affiliated to either Bowls England or English Indoor
Bowling Association that offer opportunities for disabled bowlers are
encouraged to nominate. We welcome applications from all clubs working
with disabled people, including: running regular sessions for disabled
bowlers; positively affecting a disabled person or group’s physical,
social and/or mental well-being through bowls; or successfully
integrating a number of disabled people into the club. Nominations can
be submitted by anyone within the club (e.g. club member, volunteer,
coach or committee member), or outside the club (e.g. disabled
participant, carer, friend or relative).
Clubs can be nominated
by completing the 2019 Love Fisher Brown nomination form, accessible
from Bowls Development Alliance’s website:
Nominators can either email the completed form to
