WELFORD Indoor Bowls Club’s AGM and presentation evening provided the opportunity of congratulating the club’s most successful bowler Andrew Walters.
Walters not only won the club singles but went on to win the England Indoor Bowls Association (EIBA) National Singles title by beating David Bolt from South Shields 21-8.
Walters is one of the few players in the country to have won both the National Indoor and Outdoor Singles title and everyone at Welford is extremely delighted for him as this is the first time in the history of the indoor club at Welford that the club has had a national title winner.
