Wendy King faces a crucial few weeks as she attempts to secure a place in the Commonwealth Games squad.
The Halfway bowler, who plays for Swale Bowls Club, is one of six women shortlisted to represent England in Glasgow when the action begins on July 24.
Five women will be chosen and King, the most experienced of the group, is hoping she gets the nod.
The England hopefuls travel to Bolton Bowling Club this weekend for a series of test matches and at the end of May, compete in Glasgow, on the Commonwealth Games lawn, against teams from Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Malaysia and Jersey.
King will find out if she has made the team on May 26.
She said: “I am excited about the next few weeks and not worried. I am older than the rest of them by some distance. Maybe they are looking for a younger team.
“If they do want experience, though, then that would be to my advantage.”
King, 51, has twice competed at the Bowls World Finals, in New Zealand and Australia, but the Commonwealths would top that.
She said: “I have been fortunate enough to compete in two world finals but this would be the best that you could do. It would be such an honour and it may be my only chance."
