Mervyn King (England)

An A to Z of Team Taylor

Mervyn King (England)

Mervyn King from King’s Lynn in Norfolk says:

“If you ask most bowlers to name a bowls company most will say Taylors (say no more).”

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

Size 3 Ace most of the time but use all of the models if needed. Ace has a lovely draw to the jack and this is my favourite shot!"

When and why did you start playing bowls?

“When I was 13 I started at the same time as my Dad, John!”

Are there any particular stories/incidents you would like to tell us about that relate to your bowling?

“I remember when I was playing in Delhi the jack was so HOT you could hardly hold it! You don’t get that  in the UK!”

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

“David Bryant has always been mine such a gent on and off the green.”

Do you have a favourite – film, book, song, football team, actor, etc?

“Lord of the Rings”
