2013-2014 AUSTRALIAN CATALOGUE


TAYLOR BOWLS CATALOGUE 2013-14

Welcome We welcome you to our 2013-14 Catalogue and hope you enjoy this overview. Once again this edition showcases over 200 years of unrivalled experience from Taylors resulting in bowls of the highest quality and consistency and where attention to detail and service for your complete satisfaction is our top priority.

Scotland though proved once again that they are a force to be reckoned with adapting to the Australian surfaces where Alex Marshall and Paul Foster claimed the pairs title and gold came Taylor’s way again thanks to Darren Burnett, as he helped to make it a third world triples title in a row for Midlothian’s David Peacock this time with Graeme Archer skipping.

Over the years we have become renowned for our trustworthiness and for taking the sport to new levels thanks to our inhouse design team who are continually striving to fine tune innovative ideas for our bowls to give them a new, interesting and modern feel that continues to best our competitors.

We are extremely proud of the fact that Andy Thomson and Anne Dunwoodie picked up ‘Services to Bowls’ awards. 2012 world champion Andy, our Sales Manager in England, was awarded an MBE in the New Year’s Honours List – and that was capped at the WBT Oscars at Potters Leisure Resort where he was named as the Player of the Year and the Players Player of the Year while Anne, our PR and Development Manager, received a Lifetime Achievement Award .

We are also exceptionally proud to boast that we were the most successful manufacturer at the recent World championships hosted by Australia at the Holfast Bay and Lockley’s clubs in Adelaide. We are proud to be a sponsorship partner with Bowls Australia and we also supported this quadrennial event as the Official Equipment Supplier where a variety of players helped us amass gold medals in all four of the women’s disciplines, gold in the men’s triples are well as a healthy sprinkling of silver and bronze for both, all using the most consistent performing bowls in the market. (See p5) Congratulations to all winners, but particularly to the players who promoted our product so meticulously. Karen Murphy once again stole the show and became the first player to hold the indoor and outdoor singles titles simultaneously.

www.taylorbowls.com

She celebrated further gold in the triples with our sponsored players Lynsey Armitage and Natasha van Eldick and just for good measure Kelsey Cottrell and Becky Quail took the pairs title to ensure that Australia retained the Taylor Trophy as the overall winners of the women’s team title.

We would also like to say a massive well done to Scotland’s Michelle Cooper, Lynn Stein, Caroline Brown and Margaret Letham who adapted to the testing Australian conditions and secured the fours gold.. once again playing with our bowls. You can’t ask for better than that! Australia also cemented the men’s Leonard Trophy at the best performed outfit after Leif Selby took out the men’s singles pipping our own Ryan Bester, a Broadbeach player who represents Canada in a real thriller and Mark Casey skipped his rink to the fours title.

The good news continued from Potters, with 27 year old Stewart Anderson, a Taylor player for the last three years, producing some of the most consistent performances ever witnessed to win the World Indoor Singles title against Paul Foster. In fact three of the semi-finalists used Taylor products with Stewart joined by Bowls Scotland Head Coach David Gourlay and Midlothian’s Colin Walker. We are thrilled to announce that with immediate effect we welcome Dylan Fisher from Melbourne to our stable. We have followed Dylan’s career diligently and he has been in our sights for a number of years. Without a doubt he fills all bowling criteria but he also epitomises all the characteristics and qualities we look for in our family of sponsored players. Thank you for taking the time to browse and for your support on all fronts of our business. We wish you an enjoyable bowling season.
