Lawn Bowls Extravaganza Scotland 2016

At Metis Partners we think there’s nothing like a bit of healthy competition to liven up a networking event! This was true of our amazing Glasgow Lawn Bowls Extravaganza held last month, where 13 companies joined the game in the hope of leaving as the champions, heralding the title of Best Business Bowler 2016.

We were delighted with another great turn out, welcoming teams from Barclays, KPMG, Murgitroyd, JCCA, Jumpstart, Wylie & Bisset, Shepherd and Wedderburn, Macdonald Henderson, French Duncan, Middlebrooks, Nine Twenty and the IP100.

Glasgow’s weather did not let us down, as the light rain cleared just in time for the competition to commence. We were impressed by the high standard of bowling that was brought to the lawns. This year’s winners were:

4th – Shepherd and Wedderburn (Sam Hall, Katie Barr, Joe Fitzgibbon)
3rd – Wylie & Bisset (Gordon Chalmers, Emma Kilgour, Alan Wilson, David Meldrum?)
2nd – Barclays (Douglas Brown, Owen Murrell, Stuart McAlesse)
1st – KPMG (Sangha Kalvir, Paul Smith, Paul O’Leary)

The vibrant atmosphere and excellent business networking opportunities could not have been achieved without our entrants, so we would like to extend our thanks to all the companies who took part! As one of our favourite annual events, we will no doubt be back on the green for more business bowls fun next year… which leaves plenty of time to work on that technique!

Don’t worry if you missed the Scottish event, we will be down in London on 30th of September – to sign up your team for the London event please email Dovile Kemezyte at
