Testimonials from our previous customers:

Ron McArthur is a very well known face on the Scottish bowling scene. He eats, sleeps and lives bowls,24/7.We are delighted that he speaks so highly of the Para-Handy Bowling Wheelchair.

Ron was the first person ever to be on both the Indoor and outdoor councils.

He was President of the Scottish Indoor Bowling Association in 2015/2016 and is in line to be President of Bowls Scotland in 2021. He is the current chair of the Scottish Bowls Umpires Committee and he is heavily involved in coaching,particularly Para Bowls.

Ron was the first National coach for the Scottish Association for Blind Bowlers from 2007 until 2014.

During his many years involved in Para Bowls he has built up a good reputation and is highly respected throughout the world for his expertise and knowledge of disability Bowls.

Therefore Ron was our first choice when looking for technical advice on our chairs in the development stage.

He is currently trying to increase the number of people in Scotland with a disability to participate in Bowls.

In his capacity as Lead coach at Falkirk Indoor Bowling Club we welcome his warm encouraging words regarding our chairs and the quality of service we provide.

Para-Handy Bowling Wheelchairs are approved by the British Wheelchair Bowling Association and both,Bowls Scotland and the Scottish Indoor Bowling Association.

“From the moment I contacted Andy, I felt totally reassured that he was an expert, and only had my best interests at heart. As someone new to wheelchair bowls I relied on his advice completely for my chair and wheels. My Bowls Wheelchair arrived at the date specified and Andy remained in contact with me to continue to provide a great after sales service".

"I found para-handy chairs on the disability bowls England website and from there met this really nice gentleman. He came all the way from Scotland to Birmingham to demonstrate one for me. I now have my own para-handy  chair and it has made bowling more independence for me as I can now push my self up and down the green plus I can play at away clubs, and I also know if I have a problem with the chair, I just contact Andrew and he will sort it or talk me thought  it as he has done so in the past. Top chair, top company and top top bloke".
