“Hosting the Commonwealth Games Bowls fixtures at the home of Lawn Bowls in England would be an incredible experience. We have worked hard to create a world-class venue that has delivered the women’s World Championships twice as well as annually hosting the National Championships.

“Having competed in, coached for and managed Commonwealth Games Lawn Bowls I know what it takes to deliver a great championship and I have every confidence that Birmingham 2022 would deliver a fantastic Commonwealth Games.”
