    Background: For what is said to be the first time ever, blind South African men and women have been taking part this week in a national bowling tournament. It's being staged in Johannesburg by the National Association for Blind Bowlers.

    The 36 entrants include a Cape Town player, Mr. William Rowland, who was blinded by a gunman when only five years old. Like each competitor, he has a "caller" to help him -- directing his shots.

    Brother Paul Nolan, another player, is a teacher who edits a Braille magazine for the Roman Catholic Church. He says that bowling "enhances the prestige of the blind". For him, like the other competitors, the tournament represents to climax of nearly a year's hard training.
