2019WelshSeniorInternationalTeam and British Isles Representatives

 

World Bowls president John Bell and his executive colleagues are delighted to announce the appointment of Hazel Wilson from Wales, one of the UK’s leading lights in bowls administration and resource management, to the organisation’s Board of Directors.

‘It’s a further extension of our resolve to develop the World Bowls talent pool,’ Mr Bell said at the announcement. ‘Hazel is one of the top professionals in her field, a genuine all-rounder, and we’re thrilled to have her wealth of experience, dynamism and positivity on the board.’

A career academic in the field of Adult Education, Business and Training, Hazel Wilson brings more than 20 years of experience and a success proven track record to the role. She has utilised these skills with top results as team manager for the Welsh Women’s Bowls Association at Commonwealth Games, World, Atlantic and international level competitions over the past decade.

A fine player in her own right Hazel has represented Wales with distinction since 1998; won her national singles in 1999; and was crowned British Isles singles champion in 2000.

‘I’ve known Hazel Wilson for many years,’ said World Bowls chief executive Gary Smith. ‘She’s a top professional who knows how to get things done, and her knowledge of bowls is second-to-none. A great asset to our organisation.’

In formalising the announcement, World Bowls president John Bell also paid tribute and expressed great appreciation to Claire Leonard, who relinquished her position as Appointed Director last month.

Marking Course Cardiff 2018

What an incredible match. Julie Thomas and Gilly Miles have won Commonwealth Bronze on an extra end. The last bowl from Gilly was described as the best of the Games! And what a shot it was. We are so proud of Gilly and Julie. Congratulations to you both! A special well done to John Wilson and John Byron too. Fantastic every one of you.
