Bowls career

Ashby won the women's singles title at the 2002 World Indoor Bowls Championship, 2003 World Indoor Bowls Championship and 2004 World Indoor Bowls Championship. She gained as much press coverage for her image despite the fact that she was a three times world singles champion.[1] In addition to the three singles titles she also won three mixed pairs titles in 2005, 2006 and 2010. The 2005 and 2006 wins were with John Price of Wales and during the 2010 championships she partnered Alex Marshall of Scotland.

In 2014, whilst living in Australia she married Scottish international bowler Graeme Archer and in 2015 retired from bowls.[2][3] In 2016 her relationship with Archer ended when he returned to Scotland to live.
