    THE 2018 LOVE FISHER BROWN AWARD OPENS FOR NOMINATIONS

    The Bowls Development Alliance, Bowls England, Disability Bowls England and the English Indoor Bowling Association, who together form the Bowls Disability Steering Group, are delighted to announce the new launch of the Love Fisher Brown Award.

    The 2018 Love Fisher Brown Award, sponsored by Factory Eleven, was created to recognise clubs that provide disabled participation opportunities for their bowlers. This award, named after the remarkable and inspiring Commonwealth Games achievements of Bob Love, David Fisher and Paul Brown, showcases the excellent work being undertaken by clubs with disabled bowlers around the country, and provide a benchmark for other clubs to aspire to.

    Peter Gray from Factory Eleven said of the Love Fisher Brown Award: “Factory Eleven are delighted to be sponsoring the Love Fisher Brown Award 2018. To be associated with an award which seeks to identify, recognise and rewards clubs providing participation opportunities for disabled young people and adults sits perfectly alongside our own company values of inclusivity and sport for all. BowlsParc has proven to be a very popular resource for bowls clubs and coaches to date and we hope that this year’s award recipients enjoy using the BowlsParc equipment we are providing, unlocking further opportunities for social, fun and inclusive participation.”

    All clubs affiliated to either Bowls England or English Indoor Bowling Association that offer opportunities for disabled bowlers are encouraged to nominate. We welcome applications from all clubs working with disabled people, including: running regular sessions for disabled bowlers; positively affecting a disabled person or group’s physical, social and/or mental well-being through bowls; or successfully integrating a number of disabled people into the club. Nominations can be submitted by anyone within the club (e.g. club member, volunteer, coach or committee member), or outside the club (e.g. disabled participant, carer, friend or relative).

    Clubs can be nominated by completing the 2018 Love Fisher Brown nomination form, accessible from Bowls Development Alliance’s website: http://playbowls.org/disability-bowls/love-fisher-brown-award. Nominators can either email the completed form to disability@playbowls.org, or complete the paper form and post it to:

    Bowls Development Alliance,
    Pera Business Park,
    Nottingham Rd,
    Melton Mowbray
    LE13 0PB

    The winner of the Love Fisher Brown Award will receive:
    • A Winner’s Trophy.
    • A Winner’s Framed Certificate.
    • A full Bowlsparc set.
    • A celebration event with Disability Bowls England.

    The two runners-up will each receive:
    • A runner-up framed certificate.
    • Half a Bowlsparc set.

    Entries for the award open on Monday 1st October at 9am and close on Friday 14th December at 5pm. The winner and the two runners-up will be announced on 4th February 2019.

    The award guidance notes, nomination form and further information can all be accessed on BDA’s website: http://playbowls.org/disability-bowls/love-fisher-brown-award. For more details on the Love Fisher Brown Award, contact disability@playbowls.org or 07826 929 604.
