Bowlers’ Arms

Approved bowlers arms

A bowlers arm is designed to assist a bowler who cannot continue to bowl without the aid of the artificial device and can be used in any competition within Australia.

Typically they are used where a person has hip/knee complaints which restrict their ability to bend down to deliver the bowl correctly.

There are currently four types of bowlers arms approved for use in Australia.  They are known as ‘The Bowling Arm’, the ‘Bionic Bowler Arm’, the ‘DHB arm’ and the ‘S-R Model’.  Each device is manufactured in several lengths and some include varying release mechanisms.

The bowling arm category is part of the NMP and only Bowls Australia (BA) licensed manufacturers are able to produce bowling arms for use in pennant and above competition.

You can purchase a bowlers arm through the network of retailers listed below.
