It's been a busy year of ten-pin bowling for the Addison family with Amy, 11, becoming the latest member to be selected for Junior Team Scotland.

She joins big brothers Paul, 21, and Daniel, 15, in representing their country at international fixtures this year. To have all three competing at this level at the same time is rare and a huge achievement.

Paul will be taking part in the World Youth Tenpin Bowling Championships in Nebraska USA. The event takes place between July 24 and August 3.

He will be accompanied by four of his Stirling teammates in the eight-bowler squad.

America will be the centre of the bowling world, when the best under-21 bowlers in the sport compete in the 14th World Youth Championships at Sun Valley, Lincoln, Nebraska. Approximately 262 players, 96 girls and 166 boys, from 46 world bowling member federations will participate in the biennial event bowling for 10 gold, 10 silver and 18 bronze medals in singles, doubles, team of four, all-events and masters.

Then it’s the turn of Amy and Daniel from August 25-28 when they head to Norwich for the Junior Triple Crown featuring the home nations. The event sees teams at both under-16 and under-19 participate.

St Mary’s Bannockburn pupil Amy is excited about being the youngest girl selected for the competition, but having supported her brothers at the event over the past five years should be able to cope with the intense atmosphere.

She said: "It’s noisy when the bowling is on just like being at a football match."
