National indoor bowls associations


British Isles Indoor Bowls Council

The British Isles Indoor Bowls Council is the properly constituted body for the game of indoor bowls in the United Kingdom.

English Bowling Federation

The English Bowling Federation was formed in 1945, although the grass roots of the Federation may well be traced back some 53 years earlier to the North-East of England, when the Northumberland and Durham Bowling Association adopted rules which differed from the stronger and more popular EBA - less stringent 'Laws of the Game' with regard to the condition of bowling greens - the use of ditches and banks was not compulsory - in effect any reasonable grassed and level area was considered suitable - and this, as well as a flexibility in hours of play was a boon to a work force then working much longer hours than is the case today.

English Indoor Bowling Association

The English Indoor Bowling Association (EIBA) is the National Governing Body for Flat Green Indoor Bowls in England.
