The team at BV would like to shine a spotlight on the tireless efforts John has brought to our sport at State, Regional and Club levels, not to mention his appointment as Chief Technical Officer for World Bowls, his involvement in the creation and delivery of the new national online, self-paced officiating accreditation pathway (BowlsLearn), and his regular BV ‘Lawman’ articles.

Watch John’s recent VicSport Awards interview above, plus his ‘The Lawman’ columns below, where you can find a wealth of information and insights on the rules and laws of the sport from our world-class officiating expert.
