The English bowling community has a new level two coach after Essex-based Daniel Adams successfully completed his training course with the help of a bursary from Friends of English Bowling.
Daniel, aged 32, has Asperger’s Syndrome and has been involved with our sport since starting bowling at Tyler’s Green BC in 2010.
He is now part of the coaching team at Griffin BC where he is a big part of the club’s weekly sessions for youngsters of all abilities – an initiative that launched in 2019 with support from Essex Youth services.
Daniel, who has represented England in the Learning Disability Home International series, said he was overwhelmed to receive the bursary which he intends to use to assist his coaching progression and to buy new equipment for his coaching group.
While thanking the Friends and DBE for the cheque he said: “It made me very emotional and happy to know I am so well supported,” before pledging “To continue to coach and support more people into bowls and help them reach whatever level they want to.”
“I want to give back to bowls and the community because it has been a big part of my life and I want to inspire a lot more people to get involved,” he said.
