Mark Royal

Profile

photo_5e0e63faa5c6bb54453c0ec7ddeb9343On reaching the Quarter Finals of two ranking events in the last season Mark has risen another two places after the season end points shuffle. Mark feels that his indoor form has now regained it’s sharpness and is looking forward to the 2016-17 season with great eagerness.

Mark has been in the top 16 of the WBT Ranking list since 2003 and is considered to be one of the steady performers and can be a highly dangerous opponent on his day!

Mark never gives up on the rink though and he says that any game is never over until the last bowl of the match has been played.
