The Welsh Bowls Umpires Association are delighted to have four newly qualified International Technical Officials, part of their bid for support through the World Bowls development strategy.

Having submitted an application in the Autumn of 2015, the WB regional director for Europe, Andy Ewens has been working with the Welsh umpires panel to identify methods and processes for the recruitment and development of officials to support the sport throughout Wales.

Whilst an immediate benefit has seen the use of WB’s resources to support those studying for the ITO status, the grass roots level is a priority that is high on the agenda to be addressed over the next twelve months.

Further information on development and support can be found on the WB website or by contacting your regional director.
