'Coach 14' Postponed

A number of very important developments over the last 48 hours have led to the decision to postpone the Coach 14 Seminar originally planned for the end of January.

The Head of Coaching Mark Heathorn confirmed, "Whilst I am disappointed on the one hand, it is absolutely the right decision to move the seminar to nearer the official launch date in September. A number of factors have come to light which involve having to change some of the content which will affect how the programme will be delivered. It will be worth the wait though and in the meantime I will announce a Phase 2 course to meet the existing immediate demands."

The BTBA and Team England are delighted to announce that the 2015 Team England Selection Application form has now been published.

"Welcome to 2014! A new Year and a New beginning for Team England Seniors and Adults. Hopefully over the Christmas break you have been able to digest not only your turkey and chocolates but the policies for the BTBA Tours and Trials. I have taken on board some initial feedback about dates of some of the trials and I can assure you that my team and I are looking at this very carefully. I can not promise that one date will not clash with something, but we will do our upmost not to clash with other major events."

The Qatar Bowling Open 2013

England's Dominic Barrett defeated Mattias Olsson of Sweden, 515-467 over the two-game championship match to win the 13th Qatar Bowling Open title for the second time.  

"I knew the match against Thomas (Larsen) wasn't going to be easy as he has been bowling well in Abu Dhabi and here, said the IBMA November Bowler of the Month, Barrett. "He came back strongly in the second game but I made sure I had a clean game.
