Senior Team England Manager – Ian Oakley

The BTBA are delighted to announce the appointment of IAN OAKLEY as the new Senior Team England Manager.

“Having had the privilege of Managing and Coaching various Great Britain and England Squads over the years. Managing the Senior Squad represents a new opportunity to me and it is one that I am looking forward to embracing, having shared the lanes with many of you over previous years.

“I’ve been involved with the BTBA for over thirty years now, as Manager, Trainer and as a Qualified Coach to Youth and Adult Squads. I’ve been fortunate to be able to help players bring home medals in most International Competitions from around the World and I now look forward to working with our Senior Team to help them achieve a similar outcome.

“As we all look to the future, we hope to see the second of the Senior European Championships taking place as well as the potential of another Senior World Championships and the possible introduction of the Super Senior Divisions.

“So, I look forward to working with the new Team England Management group over the coming months and like so many of our Seniors players, I also look forward to building on the recent success of bringing home medals in four of the Divisions from the recent Senior European Championships.
