Saltire Strikers: Who are we?

Saltire Strikers provide a fun, social and competitive environment for people who are blind and visually impaired and interested in playing Ten Pin Bowling.  The club strives to extend the boundaries of its members, to build confidence and encourage participation in a variety of other activities within their communities and beyond.

Membership

Membership is open to Blind and Visually Impaired adults who wish to experience a fun and competitive game of bowling and make new friends.

Sighted Helpers

We have sighted helpers who are available to assist on their lane to assist.

Equipment

Depending on funding members can be given a bowling ball with the Saltire Strikers Logo, bowling shoes and a bag.

In addition, members may also wish to use a Guide Rail. This encourages independence in players to use the rail up to the end of the lane to take a shot rather than depending on a helper to take them up.
