Bowls Royce Bowls Wheelchair
- Customer Reviews (2)
What stops you from playing bowls? Maybe you have asthma or COPD. Perhaps acute tendonitis. You might be convalescing from and injury or operation.
In all these scenarios it's not the bowling, it's the walking. Eighteen or twenty one ends just aren't possible.
Or maybe you are a wheelchair user already and didn't know that there is a wheelchair approved for use on both indoor and outdoor greens.
This wheelchair may be the bowling aid that re-enables the game you thought you had to give up for ever. Or perhaps it will open new possibilities of sport, social conviviality and even competition that you never thought possible.
The Bowls Royce is offered in two models - Manual and Electric.
The manual model - 'Bowls Royce-SP'is self-propelled using traditional wheelchair power - your own arms or a colleague. Someone on your rink or a fifth member of your team - pushes you to each delivery position. It's no different to the batsman who has a runner between the wickets.
The battery-powered model - 'Bowls Royce-BP' gives the bowler complete independence of movement. It is based on the same wheelchair frame as the manual model, developed by Bush Hill Bowls in conjunction with disability sports engineering charity ReMap.

A positive impact for disability bowlers - Friday, July 5, 2019This innovation has the ability to make a positive impact for disability bowls as it gives the disabled bowler the ability to be self-sufficient rather than to rely on others to project them on the green. One of our wheelchair bowlers, Mick Brunt, is now so proficient that he is regularly playing in club matches.

I'm back in the game! - Friday, July 5, 2019Not being able to walk between ends had killed the game of bowls for me. My Bowls Royce powered wheelchair makes me independent and mobile between ends - I'm back in the game!
