How bowls changed Jordan’s life
Bowls has changed Ballarat bowler Jordan Kaufmann’s life for the better.
Jordan, 20, was introduced to the game of bowls when playing for Damascus College in the local schools program. He instantly loved the game.
When finishing school he joined the Central Wendouree Bowls Club and has been a regular player for the past three seasons.
He now plays lead in Joy Watson’s rink in Division 5 – opponents will say he is one of the best leads in the competition.
He has improved to such an extent that he was given three games as a lead in Central Wendouree’s Division 1 team.
With Division 5 making the Grand Final, Jordan helped the team to a premiership win.
Being on the Autism Spectrum, Jordan has to work so much harder to get results that most of us take for granted.
Joining Central Wendouree has made a huge difference to Jordan. From being shy and withdrawn he now joins in the activities of the club and his enjoyment can be seen by all.
He is always smiling and happy – thanks to bowls.
