Mark Dawes


mark dawes

Mark comes from a bowls hybrid background in that he is also a rated Crown Green player in the Blackpool Area but is definately no slouch on the rinks in the Indoor Arena.

Mark deservedly won a ‘Tourcard’ entry into the 2014-15 season of WBT events and went on to to gain a quarter final place in both the Scottish and International Opens which earned him enough points to topple out newcomer, Wayne Hogg to 17th place and gained Mark the 16th placing in last seasons WBT Ranking List. Going into the 2016-17 season Mark had gained a further quarter final appearance which kept him in the WBT Rankings for the 2017-18 season and riding to No. 12

Just like Les Gillett, Mark will be out there looking to topple a few big guns this season.
