I have Aspergers Syndrome and have always found communicating with people very difficult. When I was 18, and after attempting various other sports, I found Indoor Bowls at our local club. In 2010, I joined The Griffin Bowls Club as well, to play out in the fresh air. I have since gone from strength to strength. The club has given me endless support both personally and with my bowling. My confidence, my ability to deal with people and my communication skills have improved beyond recognition.
I am now a qualified coach. I have been able to take on the role of Men's Captain for two years, and this year I am Short Mat Captain. I represent the club in competitions, I have my county badge and now I have been selected to play for England in the first Tri-nations International tournament for people with learning disabilities!
I can't imagine what my life would be like now without my bowls and my friends at The Griffin!
