Dave Sawyer, BWL National Coach has commented,

“Huge congratulations to every single one of the athletes who have come through a tough selection process to represent Great Britain at the European Senior Championships in Armenia.  This represents the quality of the team entered which include 8 women and 7 men. I would also like to give a warm welcome to some new faces on the team."

“This is an Olympic qualifying event for Paris 2024, so we are expecting the athletes to be on their best form to make their mark. Last year at the European Championships, the women’s team came third and the men’s team came eighth in Europe, making Great Britain the highest ranked Western European Nation in the competition. I am excited to see how the athletes can better these results in 2023. On behalf of the coaching and support teams I wish you all the very best.”
