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.

Competition pages have been updated with 2021 draws.


Due to ill-health Ken Carter is unable to take up the role of Vice President this year and the position is therefore vacant.

Highcliffe are the next club in line to nominate a candidate and as Lymington are, at present, unable to find a replacement for Ken, the committee would welcome a nominee from them.

There is also a vacancy for Press Officer and it is hoped someone would come forward to fill this post.

David Bradley will be retiring as Match Secretary at the end of 2021 season so the NFBA are looking for someone to take on the role in the 2022 season, ideally to shadow David during the coming season.


The 2020 Triples Competition completed with Ringwood winning the final.

The following report is from League Secretary Chris Fripp -


"This was a final of two halves. At 10 ends Ringwood were home and dry.

New Milton fought back and ended up only losing by 3 rinks to 1 and by 8 shots.

A fabulous final, played in the sportsmanlike fashion common to all NFBA games.

The weather was very good and the setting perfect.

The President of the NFBA, Derick Faulkner, thanked the Ringwood President for the use of the green and thanked all the ladies, the groundsman and other helpers for making the final a special day.

While we all hope next year will be back to near normal, this was a fine end to a difficult year."
