Equity Action Plan
(Proposed by John Kellow and approved by Committee on 9th September 2019)
Alton Social Bowls Club is an outdoor flat green bowls facility. It is fully inclusive, promoting social interaction, fun and sport in a safe environment. It offers competitive and skills development opportunities to the highest level for the whole community. Its development is somewhat limited by the fact that it is in a rural environment with a limited catchment area due to a lack of ‘chimney pots.’ Although prepared to make itself available to all ethnic groups, the social composition of the area lacks diversity. The sport itself suffers from the public perception that bowls is a sport for the demographic group that embraces the elderly/retired.
There are many other bowls clubs within a 20 mile radius of Alton Social Bowls Club
