Murray and his housemates enjoy a game of bocce at Bankstown Bowling Club. Because Murray has cerebral palsy and has limited control of his movements, he needed a means to bowl the ball more accurately.
TAD volunteer Bill Jenkins made a ramp which Murray’s carer holds up near Murray’s head, enabling him to push the ball down it with his chin. It is made from a PVC drainage pipe which is cut in half, which is light enough for the carer to hold up without any trouble.
The ramp also has an adjustable fold up support which enables the height and angle to be altered. TAD has made a number of other bowling ramps of varying degrees of complexity to suit a variety of individuals and games.
