Over the last few years, Gloucestershire has seen more and more bowls coaches become qualified, supporting bowlers to enjoy the sport.  But we still need more coaches - could you make a good coach?

Anyone interested in becoming a qualified coach might find it useful to discuss the options and what is required with David Rolls, Gloucestershire’s Bowls Development Officer *.  David tutors courses for coaches in Gloucestershire and further afield, and has already trained well over 100 coaches.

Details of recognised courses may be found on the ‘Coach Bowls’ website ( where you can also find details of courses currently planned across England.  A current list of such courses is regularly circulated to clubs by the County Administrator.
