"It's lack of faith that makes people afraid of meeting challenges, and I believed in myself."
Every year SALSC, led by its Events Director and supported by the Member Services Working Group, works in partnership with its members to organise the Ladies and Gents Over 50's Bowls Competition. The aim of this event is to encourage participation and networking in grassroots sport. These events provide the host local sports council and club with an opportunity to increase their profile both locally and nationally.
While the events are structured in a competition format, the emphasis is on enjoyment, sportsmanship and camaraderie – creating a network of clubs across Scotland with sport used as a tool for achieving this. In addition, it has the added benefit of getting people physically active in the short term and, through creating a wider network, possibilities for the longer term.
