New Zealand Blind Lawn Bowling Association (NZBLBA) is hosting ‘Have a Go’ lawn bowls events in Dunedin, Christchurch, and Nelson. There will be three events hosted in each city.  These events will be targeting females with any disability to explore the sport of lawn bowls, have fun, and make connections with others within and outside their community. There will be supportive volunteers helping participants and coaching them through the basics of this wonderful sport.
