Visually Impaired Bowls
Bowls is one of the most popular games for people with sight loss in the UK
The visually impaired can play a very good game of bowls. few adaptations to the rules are necessary, though the method of play varies slightly. Once the visually impaired bowler has learnt the techniques of the game, it is possible to play with minimal assistance from sighted partners and/or opponents. You will notice the string stretched between the centre points of the rink. This gives guidance to the player where the centre of the rink is to place the jack and judge where to stand.
