Mal Evans (Coach Bowls Board Member and Director of Coaching for Bowls England) said “We are delighted that these excellent facilities have shown their faith and support in the Coach Bowls system and have agreed to partner with us in the delivery of all of our practical days. The first course at one of the Centre of Excellence venues was delivered at Desborough BC last week, and we look forward to cementing the relationships over the coming years.”
Coach Bowls qualifications challenge coaches to think creatively to develop and use cutting-edge techniques to make short and long-term gains for bowlers.
