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.
The Bowls Royce® 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 (battery powered). Both were designed by Bush Hill Bowls in conjunction with disability sports engineering charity ReMap.
The manual model - requires muscle-power. Outdoors on grass someone on your rink or a fifth member of your team will propel you to each delivery position. It's no different to the batsman who has a runner between the wickets. Indoors every-day wheelchair users with developed upper-body strength may find self-propulsion is possible but again, to avoid tiring after several ends we recommend using colleague-power to transit between ends.
The battery-powered model - gives the bowler complete freedom of movement indoors and outdoors. This independence is highly valued by wheelchair many bowlers because they can roll-up and practice without always having to find a buddy with available time to do the pushing.

3 Reviews for Bowls Royce Bowls Wheelchair
- Green Motoring - Friday, June 4, 2021Hello, this is just a thank you message to Jerry for coming out to my Club Townsend in St Albans this morning to show me your excellent Bowls Royce Bowls Wheelchair. I agree that it would be far preferable to have the motorised version and to that end I will see if I can obtain a grant to buy one for the Club and will contact you regarding this. You mentioned that you will be demonstrating the Wheelchair at Didcot Bowls Club. If I can I may try and pop along. Once again thank you so much for taking the time to come out and I look forward to contacting you soon. Kind regards, Mike Cowell
- 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!
