A north-east bowling club has invited disabled bowlers onto the green to join in the fun thanks to funding from the National Lottery.
The Aberdeen Indoor Bowling Club has recently purchased a specialised wheelchair, created for bowlers who cannot walk, that can be used without causing damage to the playing surface.
The club was able to purchase the new equipment thanks to more than £4,800 it has recently received from the National Lottery’s community fund.
To celebrate the new funding, the club held an introduction to disabled bowling open evening on Wednesday, featuring Alex “Tattie” Marshall, a multiple commonwealth games medallist.
In addition to allowing disabled players the chance to have a go of the new wheelchair, the club also organised events for blind and partially sighted players, as well as specialised games for other.
David Findlay, a member of the club committee, said: “It was a brilliant night, and we really had an excellent turn-out.
“It was great to see everyone joining in, thanks to our new wheelchair.”
Mr Findlay said the club is planning a further disabled bowling evening in the future, and hopes even more people come along and try the sport for themselves.
