Welcome to the official website of the New Forest Bowling Association.
The NFBA is comprised of 15 Clubs across the counties of Dorset, Hampshire and Wiltshire. From Waterside in the east to West Moors in the west and from Downton in the north to Iford Bridge in the south.
The Association's headquarters is based at Brockenhurst Bowling Club in the heart of the New Forest.

This is a message from Derick Faulkner, President, New Forest Bowling Association.

To all member clubs of the Association.
In light of the current unprecedented circumstances and the decisions of Bowls England and Bowls Hampshire, your Executive has made the following decisions regarding the 2020 season.
1. All New Forest BA Competitions are cancelled.
2. The Competition finals on 6th September are cancelled.
3. The first half of the League matches, up to and including 11th June, are cancelled. A decision will be made at the end of May, in light of the prevailing conditions, as to whether the second half can be played. If this occurs, all matches would be played on a Two Triples Home and Two Triples Away basis (One each in Division 5). This removes any Home advantage.
4. Even if the second half of matches are played, there will be no Promotions and Relegations between the Divisions.
5. A decision will be made later in the season regarding the Trophy Finals on 12th September.
6. Decisions regarding the Representative Matches will be made at the end of May, the first one being scheduled for 10th June.
7. Following the agreement of the Vice-President, Ken Carter, the President will continue in Office in 2021.

I know that our members will be disappointed at the curtailment of the bowls season, but the majority of us are in the vulnerable category and the health of all is of paramount importance. It is essential that we all heed advice from Government so that we can resume our bowling activities as soon as possible.

The Association is looking for a new General Secretary. We hope members will look at this valuable role and please consider taking up the position. Your Club Secretary's have all the information on what the job entails and details of how to apply.
