My name is Glen Bailey, I am 25 years old.
I have created this crowdfunding page to seek assistance in getting my sporting career into its next stage.
I have been playing the sport of tenpin bowling since the age of 11. I am a former member of Youth Team England, and a 2-time member of Adult Team England (current) and have represented my country in the UK, Germany and China, as well as other competitions in France and Romania.
The accolades I have achieved include:
Youth Triple Crown Medallist (Silver and Bronze)
Sutong Cup - China (2nd Singles, 1st All Events)
Bowling Promotion Cup - France (2nd Singles, 1st Doubles, 1st All Events, 1st Masters)
English Sport Bowling Tour (ESBT) - 4th Place in Masters Championship
I was also the first ever player to bowl a maximum 300 game on the ESBT Tour.
The next step for me in my bowling career is to bowl the competitive European Bowling Tour, competing against the best men and women in Europe and around the world. But like with most things, finances are proving a difficulty in order to make this dream a reality.
The target I have set for this funding is sufficient to comfortably cover 2 European Tour events, being split across the following:
Flights (including additional baggage)
Tournament Entry Fees
Purchasing new equipment
This is not my preferred method of financing, but I felt the time has come that if I am to make any progress in my sporting career then reaching out to potential sponsors becomes more of a necessity.
To demonstrate the level of ability I am currently at, below is a YouTube link to the Title Match of the Bowling Promotion Cup Masters. The match was broadcast on French television.
Thank you for taking the time to read through my pledge, I thank you in advance to those who choose to support me in this venture.
