About Kelli

Kelli Wray has been playing bowls for 25 years at Club, State and Australian levels. It is through these experiences as a bowler, and after working closely with the bowls community, that she established a new passion for coaching. She sees Wray to Go as an opportunity to show others what they can achieve in the sport of lawn bowls.

Kelli helps bowlers of all abilities and ages including social, beginners, advanced, elite, young or experienced. She provides many coaching packages for individuals and groups alike, as well as training tools and resources for purchase.

Perhaps Kelli’s greatest point of difference in her coaching service is the inclusion of a  wellness component – both physical and mental – which is not limited to just your time on the green. This holistic approach came about following Kelli’s own personal experiences playing at national level and then working through recovery following a major injury.
