Dale says he is looking forward to playing in the North vs. South event.

“It means a lot to compete at a high level with and against some of my best mates,” he said.

It was inevitable that Dale put down his first bowl 16 years ago as his whole family plays bowls.

He plays for around 10 hours each week and hopes to one day be as good as Alex Marshall, who he looks up to.

His most memorable bowls moments were winning the State Champion of Champion pairs with his mum and the State fours with his brother Dean, Gary Pearson and Ryan Digby.

“I don’t have any specific mentors, but I’ve had a lot of influential people in my bowls career that have helped me to succeed.”

Dale would like to encourage new bowlers to get involved with good mates.

“Enjoy the game and the results will come,” he said.
Dale thinks that bowls is heading in the right direction in Australia.

“I look forward to seeing what the future holds for Australian bowls with a lot of upcoming stars to lead the way.”
