Preparations for the World cup are underway, most of the time I spend it in bowling alley, one of the most important things will also be my physical condition so I'm working hard on that as well. I will try to play few tournaments up until the World cup just to stay competitive and sharp.

Lisanne Breeschoten is super fit. She runs over 30 Kilometers a week and before Shanghai, she will run in her first half marathon. On the lanes, she is deadly.


“To be a bowler you have to work really hard when it comes to your technical game and make sure that you feel confident in your physical ability before you step onto the lanes.”

One player to watch this year is going to be Ireland’s Chris Sloan. A young pro shop operator now living in Sweden and an amazingly talented two hander. He is much travelled in all the World zones, gaining experience year on year and will be a contender in Shanghai.
