Bowlsparc® - a modern intrduction to bowls

Bowls Scotland in partnership with Factory Eleven is delighted to launch the Bowls Scotland Bowlsparc Project.

What is Bowlsparc?

Bowlsparc is an innovative product designed to help develop the key fundamentals of bowls, used effectively by clubs it has the potential to transform the way that we are introducing people to our sport. Bowlsparc provides fantastic flexibility and functionality giving coaches and volunteers in our Club network a modern resource to utilise when coaching bowls.

The product has been developed by Factory Eleven with input from Bowls Scotland’s Development Team. Over the past 18 months it has been piloted by Bowls Scotland with Member Clubs and through our Introduction to Bowls Coaching Award.

Who is the product aimed at?

The product is equally as useful when introducing children and adults to the sport and makes for fun and engaging sessions. One of the additional benefits of Bowlsparc is that it can be utilised by players keen to improve their ability and performance levels through purposeful practice. This means that the investment made by clubs not only benefits beginners but also existing members.

The design of Bowlsparc also makes it an ideal resource for delivering bowls at Community outreach events. This is really valuable when trying to promote your club to new audiences and as a first step to encouraging new players to visit your club.

How can I persuade my committee to purchase a Bowlsparc set?

Bowlsparc has the potential to change the way that people are introduced to our sport, to challenge perceptions, and to assist our member clubs in reaching out to their local communities and encouraging people to visit your club and try bowls.

This is a great resource for supporting the recruitment and retention of members.
