Lawn Bowls is a sport where people with Physical Disabilities or Vision Impairment can participate equally with able-bodied competitors, although regular wheelchair bowls event are also conducted. There are no rule changes in wheelchair bowls, and competitors can compete on both normal green and synthetic surfaces. To prevent tyre marks being left on the bowling surface, the bowler’s wheelchairs are fitted with wider than usual tyres.
