Present Status of Bowls
Current level of our players does not match the International level of the Game, in fact our ladies and men’s team participating at Major World Bowls event have only seen the bottom half of the ladder. Though Jharkhand Bowling Association has given the best results in many international events.
But it is commonly citied at these meets that with the minimum exposure our Bowlers get they perform beyond expectations, some of our players have beaten World Class players but do not have the consistency to win a Championship.
The Consistency will come with more exposure and a rigiourous Training and Coaching Programme under Proffessional Coaches as has happened in Shooting, Archery, Chess etc.
This can only be achieved if our Bowlers are coached by Dedicated Professionals on International Standard Bowls Surface and have access to the best Bowls Equipment available in the world.
