Guernsey's ten pin bowling team are struggling to prepare for the Natwest Island Games in 2019 as they no longer have anywhere to practice.
It follows the closure of the island's only bowling alley in August this year.
Ten pin bowling has previously only been included once, at the Island Games in Gotland in 1999.
After 20 years of waiting, Guernsey's top ten pin bowlers have been given another chance to compete after Gibraltar confirmed the sport would be part of their event in 2019.
Currently the team are hoping to send four men and four women to compete in the games in two years time.
They are hopeful the issue will be resolved and they will be able to properly prepare in order to set their sights on the medals table.
