World Bowls President, John Bell welcomes French Lawn Bowls delegation to Bowls England’s National Championships at Royal Leamington Spa

Building upon very positive talks held earlier this year in Edinburgh with a Lawn Bowls delegation from France, World Bowls President, John Bell and Regional Director for Europe, Andy Ewens were delighted to welcome two of the delegates, Patrick Duvarry & Bernard Champey (pictured here with President John Bell) for further discussions during Bowls England’s National Championships at Royal Leamington Spa.

The visit provided the delegates with an ideal opportunity to witness a first class event and venue. The two delegates and their colleagues are working towards establishing a bowling facility in the Paziols area of south-east France and forming a French Lawn Bowls authority.
