Quote: "Greenmaster bowls are the perfect fit for any green. They feel amazing in the hand and have a consistent line that suits any pace of green."

Which model(s)/size of Greenmaster bowls do you enjoy playing with and why?
I love playing with Greenmaster Premiers. I currently bowl with size 2 premiers stamped 25. they’re the best bowls out. I love the consistent line that they have and the way they feel in my hand.

Where were you born? NAMBOUR, QUEENSLAND


What country/region do you play for? MALTA


Are you a member of any bowling associations? Y/N
If Yes which ones: CLUB KAWANA .


When and why did you start playing bowls?
I was 11 years old when i first started playing. which was in 2008.


My sister and I began playing the sport because of our mum and our grandparents.



In the bowling world who do you most admire and why?


I have quite a few bowlers who I admire. the top three would have to be Karen Murphy, Lynsey Clark and Kelsey Cottrell. These athletes have managed to consistently perform at a high level for years. Another reason as to why I admire them so much is the fact that they started young. Especially Lynsey and Kelsey. They were juniors when they first began playing, which I feel I can relate to and it makes me more determined to try and reach the standard of bowls and skill that they have managed to achieve. Their passion for the game is present in every time you watch them play. I find that they’re all very inspirational and great ambassadors for the sport.


Do you have a favourite – film, book, song, football team, actor, etc. It can be more than one if you like.
MY favorite singer would have to be Kelly Clarkson. Have loved her since I was young and since I listened to her first album in the car with mum.
