News Team Henselite Greenslade & Gillett win World Indoor Pairs Crown
January 24, 2017

Team Henselite player Jason Greenslade is celebrating winning the 2017 World Indoor Pairs title for the first time along with partner Les Gillett after they defeated Welsh qualfiers Daniel Salmon and Damian Doubler in a closely contested final. 

Welshman Greenslade and English partner Gillett came from off the pace in both sets of the final to secure a 1.5-0.5 victory.

An emotional Greenslade said “All the years of pain at losing in my previous three finals all came flooding back when my last bowl was rolling down the rink. Everything was going through my mind in slow motion. It was all floating in front of me. “To be honest, Potters has never been a happy hunting ground for me so I hope that’s the monkey off my back now” he laughed, “Les has been a great partner. He’s got and ‘old head’ on him. He’s masterminded our success. He’s guided me and given me confidence to play all the right shots.” “I was disappointed that I didn’t play all that well in the final, but I played some important shost to win. I was buzzing to play that last shot and Les called me back down the rink and said “We’ll never get a better chance to win a world title” and that gave me time to calm down a bit. We are absolutely over the moon”.
