SDS Para Bowls v SYIBA

Irene Edgar and David Thomas at the 2014 Commonwealth Games

Falkirk Indoor Bowling Club will be the setting for the Scottish Disability Sport Para Bowls test match against the Scottish Young Indoor Bowling Association (SYIBA) on Sunday 5 March 2017.  The event is set to become an annual fixture in the calendar, with both organisations seeing the benefit in the lead up to several important events.

The competition has been organised by Sarah-Jane Ewing, one of our leading coaches and directors, who also coaches with the SYIBA.  She knows first-hand the benefits that this fixture will have in both organisations preparations.

The format will be pairs and triples, in line with the Para bowls element of the Commonwealth Games.  However, matches will last 3 hours (plus trial ends) with a maximum of 18 ends being played.  Individual match, as well as overall team scores, will be kept, making for a good team competition, which we are sure will create a positive camaraderie amongst our players as well those of the SYIBA.

Scottish Disability Sport has preselected the pairs and triples that will compete as part of the ongoing work in trying to determine successful combinations in the lead up to the Multi-Nations Event in Broadbeach, Australia in June 2017.
