FORMER world champion bowler Ellen Falkner passed on top tips at a session in Wisbech for Fenland's disabled bowlers.

Falkner, who plays for City of Ely Bowls Club, was joined by ex-European boxing champion Dave "Boy" Green, from Chatteris, for the event at the Hudson Leisure Centre earlier this month.

It was organised by Fendis, an organisation which aims to ensure provision in sports for disabled people in Fenland, in conjunction with the management of the Hudson Leisure Centre.

Twenty six disabled bowlers played for four hours.

A similar event was held in Whittlesey earlier this year and a further event is planned to be held in March in January.

It is hoped that other areas will see the success of these events in Fenland and inter-district matches can be played.
