Stuart Watson is trained and accredited by the British Tenpin Bowling Association (BTBA), the European Tenpin Bowling Federation (ETBF) and previously the United States Bowling Congress (USBC).

With more than 25 years in the sport and having coached many bowlers to successful league and international careers, I have created this website to reach bowlers looking to further enhance and improve their bowling game and knowledge. My Safeguarding Licence is always available for inspection at any coaching session, be it for individuals or for groups (clubs, schools, birthdays, corporate nights etc.)

I have been coaching young bowlers at Youth Bowling Clubs (YBCs) for more than 15 years, and am a founding member of Youth Bowling England (YBE), who are responsible for youth bowling in England and an active member of BTBA Coaching.

Additionally, as a member of the BTBA National Council (the Governing Body for bowling in England), I have been advising on Digital Media as both webmaster and creator of the organisations social media content on Facebook, twitter and instagram.

As well as individual coaching, instruction and lessons for individuals, I also hosts clinics where bowlers of all ages can come and be taught in groups, and enjoy the challenges of teaching clubs, schools and groups of all ages and abilities.

Bowling is an inclusive pastime and sport enjoyed by people of all ages and abilities, and I welcome the opportunity to coach people with both physical and other disabilities.
