Commonwealth Games Scotland has today announced that Garry Brown has been selected for Team Scotland in the para-lawn bowls team for the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games. Garry, from South Lanarkshire, will compete in the Men’s B7/B8 Pairs alongside Kevin Wallace.
Brown replaces Garry Hood, who has been withdrawn from Team Scotland following a three-month ban by Bowls Scotland.
Garry Brown said, “I am delighted to be selected and it’s great to be part of Team Scotland having been part of Gold Coast. I’m looking forward to getting stuck in and trying my best and building on the experience of the Gold Coast and hopefully go a couple of stages further and bring home a medal.”
Commenting on the selection, Team Scotland’s Lawn Bowls Team Manager for Birmingham 2022, Billy Mellors, said: “We welcome the news that Garry Brown has been selected for Team Scotland at this summer’s Commonwealth Games and look forward to seeing him compete in Leamington Spa later this month.”
The Lawn Bowls event at the Commonwealth Games will get underway on the Leamington Spa greens on Friday 29th July 2022. For more information, please visit: https://www.birmingham2022.com/sports/lawn-bowls
