The year after Tommy Greechan triumphed at the World Champion of Champions in Hong Kong, and Jersey won three bronze medals at the Atlantic Championships in Cyprus, many can understand why we are so proud to see our little island achieving great things on the international bowls scene.


In 2012, we competed in the Hong Kong and China Open and the Annual British Isles Championships. Twenty four ladies competed in the International Series against England, Ireland, Wales and Scotland and in so doing pitted themselves against the best the UK has to offer in the rinks format. In the Men's British Isles Championships, the rink of Didier Le Falher, Kevin Le Long, Darren Clarke and Ian Partridge lifted the British Isles Fours trophy, defeating England comfortably in the final. This is the first time a Jersey team has won this discipline at British Isles level.


Then whoever said bowls was an old man's game obviously hadn’t heard of Malcolm De Sousa, Jersey’s 21 year old bowling superstar. This year, Malcolm has


e may not be as prominent as other sports on the local


swept away opposition of all ages to lift the Island Singles Trophy, Island Pairs Trophy, Island Triples Trophy and the Island Under 25s Singles trophy. As such, Malcolm features as part of the youngest men's world bowls team Jersey has ever had. Three twenty somethings took five available places in Adelaide where battle between the world's top 24 ranked countries took place in November. Bowls Jersey thanks Touchstone Group for becoming it’s first commercial sponsor for many years, helping fund the World Bowls team strips.
