Beere has reached the final in two consecutive years, losing to Jo Edwards in 2017 but going one better last year by beating the New Zealand international in the semi-final and then clinching gold against home prospect Rebecca Van Asch.

She appears alongside fellow Guernsey woman Rose Ogier, with Matt Le Ber providing the Sarnian men’s representation.

‘As Guernsey has the defending champion, we receive a second invite,’ confirmed Bowls Guernsey event coordinator Garry Collins.

‘Rose Ogier was selected because of her good form at the moment,’ he added.

Beere features in the Section Two draw against Hong Kong China, Israel, Japan, New Zealand, Norfolk Islands, Philippines, South Africa, Switzerland and the United States, with the top three progressing to the knockout stages.

She faces Edwards again in the third day of group matches.

Ogier goes against Australia, Canada, Fiji, Macao China, Malaysia, Malta, Scotland, Singapore and Thailand in the group stages, while Le Ber faces Australia, Fiji, Israel, Jamaica, Japan, Macao China, Malta, Netherlands, Scotland, South Africa and the United States.
