EALABA – English Amputee & Les Autres Bowls Association.
We are one of the leading bowls groups for people with a disability. Our main objective is to bring the sport of bowls to people with a disability. Since 2007, we have been providing people with a disability the opportunity to play bowls in an excellent and friendly environment. As a result, like-minded people have combined to make new friends whilst competing against others with a disability.
Our website explains all About us, what, how and when we do it. Explaining how, through our achievements, regular practice helps us. If you want more information then please Contact Us using our Contact form.
Original links go back to Stoke Mandeville Hospital hence, the importance of amputee in our title. It was decided to include players with other disabilities, Les Autres, who did not have a dedicated bowls organisation to support them. We have players with cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia, autism, and others. Les Autres covers many areas including Learning Disabilities.
