The woods and any equipment are sourced from players trading, selling excess sets, Players that are retiring from the game, either through age or physical restriction. Sadly some players pass away and their partners part with different items such as woods etc. Ebay is of course a source for finding any and all types of woods, especially strong for finding a specific make and size of wood. but at a price!

I am constantly trawling the internet to find a bargain that I can pass on to you, the player or potential player. I make a few pounds here and there, sometimes losing money. But I find the buying and selling interesting, it also keeps me occupied and I meet a lot of very nice people. If posting is needed, I use Collect Plus Standard. Two day delivery with Tracking. Cost £10 inc wrapping and tape.

He's won the Commomwealth Games Singles Bowls Championship four times. Winning the Middleton Cup on numerous times and was awarded the MBE in 1980.
