Bowls England is delighted to announce those selected to attend the Junior Performance Day at Victoria Park, Royal Leamington Spa on Sunday 9th July.
We have a strategic commitment to ensuring that young players can fulfil their potential in the sport, and the Junior Performance Day is a key building block towards this goal.
Budding young players will showcase their talents in front of the Bowls England Performance Team with players aiming to gain selection for future events including the U18 and U25 Internationals to be held later this year in Wales.
Bowls England Performance Director, Mo Monkton said: “Players coming through the junior rankings are the future of our game so, it is critical that we provide them with opportunities to flourish. We are currently evolving our Junior Pathway Programme and the Junior Performance Day is key to both talent identification and player development as well as selection for international events.”
Following the Junior Performance Day, teams will be selected for the following events:
U18 International Series
Ebbw Vale, Wales
Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th August
U25 International Series
Llandrindod Wells, Wales
Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th September
Our international programme is supported by principal partner, Aviva, and players selected for international duty will all receive the new-look England kit produced by our official apparel partner, Aceit.
