Welcome to the Dorset County Indoor Bowls Association website, launched 1st September 2019, representing the Mens (DCIBA) Association of Indoor Bowling Clubs across the beautiful County of Dorset and its Jurassic Coast – Bournemouth, Bridport, Dolphin, Dorchester, Dorset Bowls Resort, Moonfleet, and Wellworthy, (see the ‘Clubs’ menu for Club details).
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. Even so, it can certainly punch above its weight, with players competing at all levels, including Under 18’s and Under 25’s, and achieving National and International success and honours.
Following a successful launch of this website in Sept 2019, we added a Records section in May 2020, which details a breadth of Historical data. The information has been gathered from numerous sources, and is still in progress. Anyone who can fill in the odd gap, or add some older data, please contact the website administrators, your contribution will be most welcome. We are also looking to add a Gallery section for photographs, so if any of you have any interesting County, National or International photo’s, please contact the website administrators, who will again, be pleased to hear from you.
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.
