    The much anticipated Test Series against the Australian Jackaroos will commence tomorrow at Broadbeach BC, Queensland – the venue for lawn bowls at the 2018 Commonwealth Games in Australia.

    Following the three-day Test Series between the two powerhouse countries, England will extend their trip to make the most of their time in Australia with a number of matches against quality Gold Coast club sides and three State Development Teams

    A further six days of quality competition has been arranged for the England touring party including two days against Broadbeach Bowls Club bowlers, a day taking on Queensland’s Development Team, a hit out with another powerhouse Gold Coast bowling Club, Club Helensvale, and England will complete their training with two days taking on the NSW/ACT NTC Squad.

    Australian National Assistant Coach Gary Willis has selected a strong NSW/ACT NTC Squad line-up which includes former Australian Jackaroos, Australian Under-18 and Development players and current NSW/ACT State representatives.

    2015 Australian Open Singles Champion Aaron Teys will spearhead their side along with teenage super star Jono Davis.

    The NSW/ACT NTC Squad have been practicing for their challenge against England at their Centre of Excellence, Cabramatta Bowling Club in Sydney’s West.

    Another formidable challenger will come from the Broadbeach locals who have forged a strong line-up for their two days of action against the visiting nation.

    Current and former internationals, Ryan Bester (Canada), Katelyn Inch (New Zealand), Chloe Stewart (Australia) and Julie Keegan (Australia) all call Broadbeach home; whilst a host of young talent have followed to play out of the home of the 2018 Commonwealth Games.

    Club Helensvale have a star studded line-up headlined by Australian Jackaroos Captain Lynsey Clarke and former Australian representative Anthony Kiepe.

    Off the back of Queensland’s recent success at the Australian Sides Championships, Bowls Queensland have acquired the likes of QLD skips Julie Keegan and Bolivia Millerick along with Jessica Srisamruaybai and Chloe Stewart for their one day hit out on May 2nd.

    These six days of competition are not only great preparation for England but a chance for local bowlers to get their taste of what international competition is all about.

    The teams will battle it out in singles, pairs, triples and fours and we aim to provide regular updates from the tour.
