Welcome to the new Dorset County Indoor Bowls Association website, launched 1st September 2019, representing the Mens (DCIBA) and Ladies (DCLIBA) Associations of Indoor Bowling Clubs across the beautiful County of Dorset and its Jurassic Coast – Bournemouth, Bridport, Dolphin, Dorchester, Dorset Bowls Resort, East Dorset (Ladies), Moonfleet, and Wellworthy, (see the ‘Clubs’ menu for Club details).
In order to achieve a pre-season launch, we have concentrated on setting up the information we believe is required to cover the immediate playing needs of our members. We will take a breath, see how well we have done so far, and with comments from members as the Season unfolds, then look to what else we can do / add.
Dorset, a County that is overflowing with history and beauty, but relatively small in Indoor Bowls terms, with just seven Clubs affiliated to the Men and eight Clubs affiliated to the Ladies, even so, it can certainly punch above its weight, with players on every step of the ladder up to International level.
If you are already a bowler, in the famous words of Lord Kitchener (with some poetic licence) “YOUR COUNTY NEEDS YOU”, please support your County by entering County Competitions, try for County selection, or fill one of the Vacant Officers roles, your involvement will be both rewarding, and much appreciated. If you are not yet a bowler, go along to any one of our Clubs, all of whom will make you very welcome, and have a go, you don’t know what you are missing.
In the meantime, we hope that you find this website interesting, informative and easy to navigate.
