Olle Bachgren from Bowls Sweden competed at the recent 2023 World Championship in the Gold Coast, Australia and enjoyed the experience so much, he wants other Bowlers from Sweden or with Swedish heritage to represent their Country as well.
During the recent Championships, Olle met with World Bowls CEO Neil Dalrymple to discuss the future plans for Bowls Sweden and the possibility of establishing a permanent green in Sweden. Currently, they are utilising Curling facilities and utilising carpet rolled out to play bowls.
Olle wants to grow the sport of Bowls in Sweden and increase the number of bowlers to compete at an elite level, offering coaching and opportunities to compete in Bowls events around the world.
