FOR MEMBERS WITH A DISABILITY    

 

Parking

Prince Arthur has a large car park with disabled parking bays near the main entrance.  The barrier will lift when a car approaches and a member's card is need to exit the car park.

                                       
                                       

Nearest public transport links

For those members using public transport there are bus stops for the 116 bus just outside the Club in Prince Arthur Road, and there are bus stops, just a short walk up the road from the Club and opposite the King Charles Hotel in Brompton Road, giving access to the Medway Towns and beyond.

Flat access or ramps available

Access to the Club is through double opening doors with the main social area being on one level.  Access to the bowling green is via a ramp or steps and for those using a wheelchair an extra ramp can be put in place to get down to the green itself.

                      
    

Hand rails and disabled toilet

There are hand rails down each access to the rinks and there is a hand rail between rinks for  members to get down to the green.  There is a disabled toilet on the main social area.

Designated sessions or coaching sessions available

We offer Coaching sessions led by qualified Coaches.  We encourage all new members to join in the Organised Roll Ups where existing members will always give assistance and encouragement to newer bowlers.

If you want coaching then please contact Lynn Bramwell at the counter who will advise of any sessions currently available or contact the coaches to arrange new sessions as needed.

                                       
                                       

Equipment available (bowling arms/wheelchair/bowls etc..)

We have 3 wheelchairs designated for use on the green and a full range of different size and weight bowls available for hire for a small donation

Call the Club on 01634 281243 to find out more. 

We already have Blind Bowlers playing every Tuesday in the Winter Season and their details can be found below.                                      

Also on Saturday mornings the Club runs Boccia Sessions, a Paralympic sport and a seated game very similar to Indoor Bowls, and just as competitive.                                         

Those of you who bowl on a Tuesday morning or afternoon will be familiar with the RBBG who come along with 2 or 3 rinks and have fun bowling.

You may also recall some of the Group's quizzes that  have been left on the counter at times.

This is a very successful Group that not only plays bowls indoors and out, but also has a very active social life.  Don't take my word for it, have a look at their website.

On Tuesday 30th December 2014 the Group came in to play bowls and had a visitor in the form of Tracey Crouch M.P. for Chatham & Aylesford.  Tracey spent nearly 2 hours talking and playing with the Blind Bowlers.  The RBBG have a full report on her visit on their website and you can get to it quickly by clicking on http://www.rbbg.co.uk/tracey_crouch_joins_rbbg.  Much better to read their report than to have it summarised here
