The difficulty of arranging for care centre clients and athletes to travel to other venues to compete in ScoreBowls competitions.

What it does

The game simulates the sport of bowling in a compact portable format for use indoors and outdoors. Players can compete over any distance.

How we built it

The game is hand built. All software is written by the team.

Challenges we ran into

The only way to get useful feedback from care centre managers and clients was through extensive use of mockups and prototypes.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

ScoreBowls has been played in hundreds of locations with over 10,000 games played to date.

What we learned

The use of design thinking has proved invaluable in involving non-technical stakeholders.

What's next for ScoreBowls Challenge Foundation

App development. Web portal development. OpenSource Foundation launch.
