State: Victoria

Club: Altona Bowling Club

Bowl Used: Edge Factor Size 2

Why do you use Edge Bowls? They are a good solid bowl that narrows in on the jack.

How and when did you start bowling? I started playing bowls back in 2010 and my addiction would be my sisters fault. It all started when my she needed a bowls partner for the Moama Premier Ladies Pairs tournament, so I thought how hard could this be? I’ve got this! Well after the display and caliber of talent at this high-end tournament - I was addicted, all I wanted to do was improve my game and compete against the best of the best.

Which bowlers do you enjoy playing with or against? I enjoy playing with my family, but also against them too as they are very strong bowlers and they’ve taught be everything about the game from the get go. When we unite together we are known as #teamedwards which is funny because it puts a target on your back and you just want to keep on stepping up, be better with every bowl delivered but to keep on having fun!

What would you do if you weren’t bowling? Easy. Traveling!

What is your biggest accomplishment in bowls to date? Being apart of the Victorian State team. 

What would be your ultimate bowls achievement? To win the AO with my family and to win gold at Australian side championships.

Do you have any heroes or people who inspire you? I take inspiration from a lot of different people, from my family’s accomplishments on the green, to a person that has defied the odds. I think I take different aspects that I admire from others to gain inspiration/motivation.

Do you have a saying or motto that you live your life by? Whatever happens...happens!

What song best describes your work ethic? Harder Better Faster Stronger
