Just finished packing for the International Series over in Stanley. The highlight of the season for most, including me, I'm sure. The crowds and atmosphere makes the event unique.

The feeling of pride and passion when you take to the rink playing for your country is second to none - a feeling most sports men and women feel when they are lucky enough to be able to say they stepped out representing their country.

I'm looking forward to catching up with some friends and enjoying the experience and will report in my next Blog how it all goes.

Look out Stanley.........................here come the Girls!!!

'Ever the faith 'and passion' endures, England, my England'

Well its been a very hectic January and February so far.

Fabulous time at Potters - and more about the charity night I played in later - but its was a lovely time with Parents - Ali Merrien - Eleanor Gass - and of course the Crown Green gang arriving for the launch of Superbowl (again more on that later).

Then I went straight from there to Hayling Island for the Champ of Champs finals - some 300+ miles - managed to get to the Semi Finals there and just lost to 20 - but so so pleased my buddie Julie Leake went on to win the final.

Then from there straight back to the International Open at Blackpool Newton Hall - where 14 hour days and great bowls greeted me - and none more so than the final between Paul Foster MBE and Alex Marshall MBE - an epic - Paul was fantastic - and what a couple of great guys for the sports ambassadors.

Then its been York and Cumbria for rounds of nationals and events - with a little bit of junior coaching thrown in. And poor Richard has found himself taxi driver and coach and brew getter and chief supporter.

So one hectic start to the season.

Next Blog will be on the launch of Superbowl 2014 - something I have been working on for most of my life in one way or another - trying to promote Crown Green - and getting it on mainstream tv. At this point I must thank the WBT for seeing the possibilities and huge thanks to Danny Barwise and Chris Brown - for all their work behind the scenes for the last two years - and taking on the role of 'ambassadors' for  Crown Green Urs!!!!!!

Exciting year ahead for all!!!

*****************

Hi all - well, as usual, December has proved rather hectic. Fitting in Nationals and International trials and the likes.

Just a couple more things in the diary before Christmas then a few days off before a trip to Spalding Open then full on to Potters followed by the Champ of Champs. Its all go.

Found out Monday I have been selected to represent England at Stanley in 2014. So that was a lovely early Christmas present. Never a prouder more honourable moment than when you step on that rink to represent your country.

Working hard too - watch out in January for some new things being announced.

Don't forget over Christmas to have a look at your diary for June. The TLH event is booking up nicely and is sure to be a great week at a fabulous venue.

Meanwhile if you cant wait till June for a trip - why not come to Blackpool for the International Open in February and watch the stars - up close an personal!

" The International Open 2014 is again being hosted by Blackpool Newton Hall. The event runs from Sunday 2nd February to Friday 7th February. Great Christmas present - book your tickets now on 01253 301447. Alex Marshall MBE wowed the crowds at the venue last year with an impeccable bowls performance and took the Co-operative Funeralcare International Open title 2013 - who will step up to take the title in 2014? Be there to see for yourself - For tickets and details of times contact Newton Hall now!"

Whatever - have a great Christmas and New year!

Well what a roller coaster of a month it has been. Just had time to sit and update you all.

At the weekend I took part in the Potters Ladies World Match Play qualifiers and was delighted to get through - supported by my better half, my parents and by Alison Merrien my close friend who travelled over from Guernsey to support me and the event (as she is already qualified for the finals - being runner up in last times final).

Then I hot footed it over to Stanley Indoor Bowls Club where the first ever Co-operative funeralcare England v Scotland Ladies test match was held. I had been, out of the blue, asked to do the commentary by the production company involved and thoroughly enjoyed the experience - though the schedule was grueling - hardly time to catch my breath. Two nine and half hour days of talking bowls. All featured on Premier Sports and also now on Virgin 551!

And what bowls we were treated too - all good for the women's game and fantastic to be part of.

Now time to catch my breath and do the washing and ironing - fit in a few games of bowls and then off to Perth for the Scottish International open. You can find this on BBC Scotland - the coverage is extensive and there will be regular result and gossip updates!!!

Great times meeting new people - new contacts - supporting bowls - playing bowls.

Next update will be from the lovely city of Perth!!

Welcome Back

Well the indoor season is upon us once more and I’m looking forward to the season ahead. The bowls breaks for 2014 are booking up well and my diary is filling fast for the next six months of indoor competition.

First up for most competition players will be the WBTs World Qualifiers. I’m off to Bromley this year. They say a change is as good as a rest. Looking forward to seeing some new faces and looking forward to playing with Pat Briscoe in the pairs and eating cake with his better half Vicky.

Then all the planet bowls stuff kicks off, virtually an event every weekend. Good luck to all who can make these events and support the people and clubs involved this season.

I also have the premier 3s to look forward to at Stanley and I know a few are coming to watch me on Wednesday 2nd October. New format for me and all good experience.  I for one love the Stanley surface and always get a good turn out to watch and shout me on. It’s the northern air you know ;-)

Right that’s it for now as off out for a practice session.  Be good. Enjoy the season. Follow the blog and enjoy.

If you want to get in touch just holler!

I was delighted to have been asked by the WBT to support and attend the Co-Operative Family Fun day at Chester race course on Sunday 7th July. And what a 'full on day' it was. We simply never stopped all day and it was fabulous to have so many young children keen to 'have a go'. Here is the official report from the event:

Scorching Sun at Co-Operative Fabulous Fun Day Chester

From Brendon Cole to Malcolm the Chester Zoo Meerkat Mascot. From Warrington Wolves Rugby to face painting. What a treat all had in store at the Co-Operative groups Chester Family Fun Day.

And none more so than the team from the World Bowls Tour who set up a Dales Short Mat for ‘come and have a go’ sessions, that were greeted by swarms of people throughout a packed day.

Richard Maddieson CEO of the World Bowls Tour said ‘I don’t think any of us expected such a great turn out to come and have a go at bowls and to see the youngsters getting involved and coming back for more was fabulous.’

One of the supporting bowlers, manning the stand at the event, was England International Janice Gower. Janice helped out all day giving coaching and advice to the throng and providing the live radio, from Dee radio at the event, with a guest interview and coached the radio presenters at the game, ‘It is fantastic to give some of the support back to the Co-operative Funeral care, without who’s support for the game we wouldn’t have some of the main stream coverage we do, so to give some time up to give a little back goes without asking, but to have just so many having a go made for a great day for the game’.

Merseyside Crown Green star Danny Barwise gave up some of his time to support the event and the WBT stand. ’Thanks to the Co-Operative and the WBT for the invite, it was great to get involved and give support to a company who really supports both codes of bowls right from the top to grass roots level. The fact that the game has such a sponsor and the support they provide helps to get some TV coverage, is vital for the future generations of the game.’

The third volunteer bowler for the day was Blackpools own Sue Kearsley. Not only a national champion in her own right but part of the management team that run the Newton Hall complex that plays host to the Co-Operative Funeral cares International open and Tour card finals events. ‘I really can’t believe how many people came to have a go. It was full on all day. We didn’t even get a chance to see some of the other things going on on the site as we were simply nonstop. It was a pleasure to see so many people and to have been here to support the Co-Operative Funeralcare’.

Throughout the day Richard Maddieson had target bowls sessions played with the winners receiving free finals tickets to Co-operative funeralcare International Open of their choice. The first such event was won by an eleven year old girl who thoroughly enjoyed having a go and beamed when she realized she had won. The second was won by a father who just picked up a bowl and hit the target first time, ‘Being able to take my son to a TV bowls event will be great, we watched it in February on TV on the blue carpet and he has wanted to have a go since then, so this was a fabulous opportunity for the family. To go on and to win for them makes it even better. Thank you.’ Needless to say a good day was had by all.

 

 

'A Ray of Sunshine in Torquay.'

While outside the weather was ‘inclement’ to say the least, inside the impressive TLH indoor bowls arena at Torquay the atmosphere was sunshine and smiles all the way.

Janice Gower welcomes the Torquay 2013 Group

 

 

 

England International Janice Gower was guest host of a week of bowls at the TLH venue and players came from all over to enjoy the midweek break.

And what a week it was – the bowling all round was of a great standard and none more so than that in the final game of the week between Malcolm Morris (Ammanford, South Wales) and Ray Smith (Cannock, England) and it literally came down to the last bowl of the last end where Ray has only seven inches of room to draw to make two shots and tie the game up. He steered his last bowl round a short bowl and sat right next to the jack which meant the points for that individual game gave him the week’s top reward of a crystal clock. Organized Fun events and Quizzes gave the group a wonderful week, with also plenty of time to explore the facilities on site and take in the lovely surroundings of Torquay.

All the bowlers commented at the end of the week on how they enjoyed the whole event and in particular the disabled bowlers congratulated TLH on the way they catered for them. The event truly proved the game is a sport for all with able bodied, disabled and wheelchair players all enjoying the camaraderie of the week.

Next year’s week break is the 9th to the 13th June and TLH have managed to keep the incredible price at the same level as this year. Bookings are already going well and it looks like 2014 will have smiles all round as well. For further information or to join the break please contact Terri Kennard on 01803 400108.

Well has summer finally landed? I do hope so!

I take a couple of months off bowling to fit some work in.

Take a look at the Torquay event coming up in a couple of weeks. fantastic holiday in the sun with some bowling thrown in and I personally cant wait to catch up with all my wheelchair and disabled friends!

Also take a look at the PBAs ideas and new web page. They are after feedback from the members about the idea of introducing a ladies qualifier for the match play!

Interesting times ahead with Nationals changing to mostly weekends and all the planet bowls events ta boot - the diary is looking hectic already!

Right sun and garden for a few hours.

Been a great weekend with excellent bowling. Time for a relax and chill. Roll on the next indoor.

Will be updating blog weekly up to the next event and then hopefully again live.

Be good people!!!
