Bowlers interested in competing at the MultiBowl Nationals must hold a classification for Bowlers with a Physical Disability, recognised by International Bowls for the Disabled (IBD).
Bowls Victoria will be holding a classification day for those interested in trialling for the MultiBowl Nationals Squad, or competing in the State Multi-Disabilities Championships (April 7-9, 2017) prior to the State event on Thursday 6 April, from 10:00am to 2:30pm at Yarraville Footscray BC.
The process to classify is FREE, and will be conducted by Bowls Victoria’s Chief Classifier Carlene Gregory. It involves a candidate completing relevant forms, a bench test, and a bowling action test.
To help players determine if they may be classified as a bowler with a physical disability, please see the bowls classes recognised by IBD:
B5 Ambulant and wheelchair bowlers with restricted grip and upper body limb function, poor balance and co-ordination, unable to bowl a full length jack. A splinting device for bowlers with limited grip/release hand function may be used. (Separate from a Bowling Arm).
B6 Ambulant and wheelchair bowlers with reduced balance function (loss of 5 points or more) but able to bowl a full length jack.
B7 Ambulant and wheelchair bowlers with minor balance problems (loss of less than 5 points).
B8 Ambulant and bowlers, who have a permanent and irreversible disability, have lost 10 points on the bench test, but have no noticeable impairment of function.
If you’re interested in undertaking a classification please contact Scott Nicholas at email@example.com for more information.
