Kevin Mitchell, a partner in the commercial department and sports unit, said the firm has been appointed to act for the national organisation, its regions and 2,500 clubs across 35 counties; and to provide a legal helpline. He said:“Bowls England, which is in the process of moving its headquarters from Worthing to Leamington, is just the right organisation for our sports unit, which has considerable expertise in acting for sports bodies.

Tony Allcock, MBE, Bowls England chief executive and 15 times world champion, said: “Blythe Liggins speak the language that we want to hear.”

He said the move was primarily about economics and geography and would make Leamington the new ‘Wimbledon’ of bowls.
