In 2016 Chris Young and his brother Pete bought the business and moved the shop in its entirety to a new and improved premises within the Wey Valley Indoor Bowling Club in Guildford, Surrey.

Chris is one of the top bowlers in England having reached the World Indoor Pairs Final and Quarter Final of the World Indoor Singles at Potters narrowly losing to Alex Marshall MBE on a tie-break.

He has represented England at all levels both Indoors and Outdoors across the world with a highlight being playing in the 3 man test series in Australia with former World champion Mervyn King.

Chris and Pete had worked for Bowlswear Direct since 2001 and between them have a vast experience in the world of bowls retail and so are well positioned to advise on all bowling needs. If you would like any advice on choosing the right bowl for you – please do not hesitate to contact us.

We specialise in club visits having visited over five hundred clubs last year. If you would like us to come to your club please get in touch on the contact us page – don’t forget if we do visit your club, they get commission and you save on postage!

Personal shoppers can now take advantage of FREE PARKING and “try before you buy” on one of our 6 indoor rinks or 12 Short mats! *If rinks available* (Saturday mornings are usually the best time)

The shop stocks all of the leading brands and usually has stock over 40 sets of bowls within the shop.
