More lawn bowls clinics in the pipeline

26th March, 2019

By FRANCIS XAVIER

KOTA KINABALU: A total of 19 participants attended the Lawn Bowls Clinic for beginners organised by the Sabah Lawn Bowls Association (SLBA) over the weekend.

SLBA President Datuk Ladislaus Maluda said this was their first clinic for beginners for the year. He added that they will organise more similar clinics in the near future.

Ladislaus said the one-day clinic was conducted by their qualified and experience in-house coach and assisted by some of their recently graduated Level 2 coaches.

“Of course we shall also continue to promote and organise more lawn bowls clinics for beginners amongst the adults because they can assist us to identify and get more youths to be interested and participate in our future clinics,” said Ladislaus, adding that among the 19 that attended, 12 were adults and seven students.

“We are looking at mid-May to conduct another clinic (for beginners) and simultaneously with the introduction of our Novice Cup Lawn Bowls tournament,” he added.

“We will also liaise with our affiliate members such as Tawau, Sandakan and Keningau to look for a suitable date to conduct these lawn bowls clinics for beginners, which is also part of our membership drive programme.

Meanwhile, Ladislaus also expressed his sincere thanks to the state government for the RM75,000 annual grant they received recently.

“We are very grateful to the Ministry of Youth and Sports for the 2019 annual sports grant which we will use a greater portion of it in our development programme, especially to attract more youths to take up lawn bowls seriously,” he said.

“With more than 20 recently graduated Level 2 coaches, I plan to make full use of their knowledge and skills not only to identify and train more students but also to plan and carry out follow up training programmes and specific tournaments to ensure that their basic knowledge of the game and their interests continue to improve and grow,” said Ladislaus.
