Below are pictures of some of the facilities that the club has on offer to ensure bowls is truly a sport for all.
A dedicated team of members, some of whom sit on our Club Committee, are on-hand to ensure that any new or prospective members that would make use of these facilities are given full training and induction to all equipment.
Five Rivers operates a policy of inclusivity, encouraging people of all abilities to bowl at the club. If you are impaired in any way please contact the club and we will do everything we can to assist you to be able to play bowls.
Wheelchair user car parking spaces are located by the main entrance (parking space painting being redone over Summer 2020) with a gently sloping wheelchair friendly ramp access to the club lobby.
For those with physical difficulties access to the bowling area is assisted by use of steps on all four rinks and for those who use wheelchairs the club has manually operated bowls wheelchairs for use by members of the club. These options give our disabled bowlers independence on the rinks. Wheelchair rink access is by a ramp on Rink 1 from the rinkside onto the rinks.
Many of the club coaches attend disabled coaching courses providing them with the knowledge to assist players of all disabilities to learn how to play bowls.
As previously mentioned, the club operates a fully inclusive policy with bowlers with a disability being encouraged to become members and compete with or against non-disabled bowlers.
Five Rivers strives for continuous improvement of its disabled facilities and operates a Suggestion Box and welcomes all comments and suggestions from members and visitors on how facilities can be improved.
