10 year anniversary, 2007 - 2017
English Amputee & Les Autres Bowls Association was formed in 2007, originally from the bowls section of a multi-sports organisation, the British Amputee & Les Autres Sports Association.
E.A.L.A.B.A. is one of the four sports disability bowls groups, the other three being CP Sport for those with cerebral palsy, British Wheelchair Bowls Association and Visually Impaired Bowls England.
Our current bowls membership is over 30, which we are constantly striving to increase. More than 10 of which have represented England or/and Great Britain at various international events..
Members come from all over England and plus one member from Northern Ireland.
We have three qualified coaches, EBCS and BDA approved, who offer advice and help to our members.
We hold three National championships, indoor and outdoor singles and a drawn pairs.
We compete in three Disability Bowls England competitions, Singles, Pairs and Triples during the year.
Our world governing body is International Bowls for the Disabled (IBD) which hosts a world championship every four years. Five of our current membership have participated in a number of these.
