'Tomorrow the world' the case for Sarnians

THE phrase 'tomorrow the world' rings doubly-true for Guernsey's bowlers this week.

'Tomorrow the world' the case for Sarnians

Because two world championships are scheduled to get under way tomorrow as far apart as Grainville in Jersey and Warilla in New South Wales, each with Sarnian representation.

Guernsey's British Isles singles and pairs champion Alison Merrien, together with Garry McFarlane, are popping over to Jersey to compete in the World Indoor Bowls Council version of the world indoor singles and mixed pairs championships.

Meanwhile, the talented Todd Priaulx is already in Australia, preparing for his assault on the World Cup – a tournament organised by the World Bowls Limited, who run the outdoor game, but, in this case, are staging an indoor event at the magnificent Warilla Bowls Club.

The World Cup is the event in which the incomparable Ali Merrien has enjoyed a great deal of success, but this year she has decided to concentrate her efforts on winning a prestigious title nearer to home.

Priaulx, on the other hand, will be strutting his stuff Down Under, where he will be involved in a gruelling nine-match round robin against some of the best bowlers in the world, before, hopefully, reaching the knockout stage of the men's World Cup.
