Emily Thomas (Short Mat Player)

An A to Z of Team Taylor

Emily Thomas (Short Mat Player)

Emily Thomas was born in Dorset in 1997 and is a member of the ESMBA and the DSMBA. She has been in the England Squad from 2016-22 and Dorset Premier player since 2014. In 2012 Emily started to play short mat bowls after months of being encouraged by her Mum and became addicted straight away!

Which model/size of Taylor bowl do you enjoy playing with and why?

Emily says: "At the moment I play with size 4 Internationals, which I think are a great all-round bowl for Short Mat. The Taylor Team are all friendly and helpful - their products are well designed and 100% reliable."

Emily has also started playing with size 4 Aces for faster short mat carpets! 

In the bowling world who do you most admire and why?

"I wouldn't say I admire one individual bowler but I do look up to any top player who still has the upmost respect for other players whatever their ability."

Favourites:- Emily's favourite films are The Lord of the Rings Trilogy.  Emily enjoys watching all types of sports, especially her favourite tennis player, Rafael Nadal.
