What would you do if you weren't bowling?
Martin first started playing bowls at the Katherine BC in 2005 where he played the first 3 yrs of his junior career. Martin played in all junior events available with some success.
In 2007, Martin’s father Troy, took Martin and a fellow junior under his wing and entered the trio into the NT State Championships. During this competition, Martin with his Size 00 bowls displayed some natural talent and caught the eye of some NT State Side players one of which was Scott Hollingworth who is now Martin’s coach and mentor.
Martin and his family then moved to Darwin which saw Martin join the Palmerston Bowls Club where he played in the A and B grade pennants sides for 1 yr.
In late 2008, Martin made the move to Nightcliff Bowls Club and secured a place in the A grade pennant side for 2009. 2009 saw Martin go from strength to strength with his bowls and his results, through dedication and hard work, speak for themselves. In 2010 he represented Australia at the Junior Trans Tasman.
