The Bowls Development Alliance has again made available recruitment packages to encourage new bowlers, and the present “window” to apply for a package is 5.00 p.m. on March 30th. The B.D.A. website and the Bowls England website give details of what is available, with the most common  being the £250 package. The fact that you have had the grant in the past does not prevent you from applying again. The application form and details of the terms and conditions can be downloaded from the B.D.A. website. Another “window” to apply running from Monday July 2nd until 5.00 p.m. on Friday August 31st  is also available.

In order to qualify for one of the packages your Club must have a registered B.D.A. Coach, but, if your Club currently does not have sucha person, there is nothing to stop you asking a registered B.D.A. Coach from another Club to help you out.
