Alex Marshall


Alex was born in Edinburgh, Scotland in 1941 and was just a young lad when he began playing bowls entering league play already at 15. He immigrated to Canada when he was 29 years old and joined the Garneau Club in Edmonton. His involvement in the sport here in Canada continued for many years as both player and coach. Alex showed his passion for the sport by giving back in many leadership roles. His best and proudest memory was walking into the stadium at the 1986 Commonwealth Games in Edinburgh, Scotland.  Lawn Bowls Alberta is proud to induct Alex onto our Wall of Fame in the Builder category.
