Before the launch Simon got his first taste of Bowls when Ed Sawbridge, currently the No1 on the Short Mat Players Tour, gave Simon instruction on how to play Short Mat Bowls at Daventry Community Centre a club which then welcomed Alex Marshall MBE and David Bolt, an old friend as the picture on the club's website will testify.

Simon then joined others at Daventry Indoor Bowls club to get free coaching and advice from 3 champion bowlers Alex Marshall MBE, David Bolt Commonwealth games medal winner and Arthur the Welsh indoor Bowls Champion

'Bowls is Bowls' was then successfully launched by Simon Ricketts, the award winning Presenter and Managing Director of Smart Home Securiy Limited, at Daventry Indoor Bowls Club "One of Daventry's hidden assets" as noted by Alex and Simon.

Some comments from those listening to Simon's launch presentation

"He nailed it, the key issue which we need to change is how bowls is perceived"

"What a great presentation from a great presenter, Simon made it so clear and easy to understand what issues 'Bowls is Bowls' will be addressing to help move our great game of bowls forward"

" 'Bowls is Bowls' clearly has a place in UK Bowls, for example by working alongside the Bowls Development alliance"
