Daventry residents are invited to come along to the launch of Astro Bowls for Daventry, this Friday 31st March, at the Daventry Museum.
Astro Bowls is a new form of the game to enable people to play bowls throughout the year using artificial astro-turf pitches. As well as this, a variation of bowls has been created to allow those with disabilities or who are less able, to play bowls in the community which we will be showcasing at the museum. More »
Launching at the Daventry Museum on Friday 31st March from 10.30am-12.30pm, Ian Litchfield and Mark Courtney (founder members of Astro Bowls), will be providing free demonstrations and free coaching to people of all ages. Why not come along and join the Daventry Mayor, Councillor Glenda Simmonds and Daventry Deputy Mayor, Councillor Lynne Taylor, and try this new exciting game!
Ian Litchfield, has developed this adaptation of the game which is suitable for those who have disabilities or are less able to participate in the traditional game of bowls. Following a serious car crash Ian used bowls to recover from head injuries he suffered and has now developed this variation to make the game accessible and inclusive to all.
"My biggest learning from my health problems was that if you do not try a sport in your life, you could miss out on enjoying the challenge and the social side which is why I enjoy the pleasure which everyone has when I visit and let them play my various games."
The official launch of Astro-Bowls across the Daventry District takes place on Friday 31st March at Moulton College, with the support of local MP Chris Heaton Harris and England international, David Bolt. People of all ages and abilities are invited to try the sport for free and enjoy free coaching, competitions and live music from 7.00-9.00pm. » Less
