BOWLS CLASSIFICATION DAY

| PHYSICAL DISABILITY |
Bowls Victoria is calling for registrations from bowlers with a physical disability who are seeking classification to play in disability bowls events.

Formal classification enables a bowler with a physical disability to trial and be considered for the Bowls Victoria Multi-Disability State Side and to compete in restricted events, such as the State Disability Championships, Colac Integrated Triples, and Berwick Integrated Pairs.

There are three steps to classification:

  1. Contact Carlene Gregory, Bowls Australia Medical Classifier, for pre-screening to ascertain eligibility for classification
  2. Have your Doctor complete the Certificate of Diagnosis form (you must bring this to the classification day)
  3. An accredited classifier will assess your physical impairment relevant to the requirements for playing bowls. This includes playing an end or two of bowls (you must bring your bowls and any equipment you use to assist you during a game, eg walking stick, wheelchair, etc).

The classification day will be held on Sunday, 27 November at the City of Geelong Bowls Club, 7-9 Ballarat Road, Geelong.

Start time from 10:30am.

If you are interested in becoming classified, please send an email to geoff@bowlsvic.org.au or call Robyn on 03 9861 7100 at Bowls Victoria. Please ensure you include your full name, contact email address, and phone number. Bowls Victoria will provide a referral to Carlene Gregory as the first step to classification.
