Stamford & District Bowls League Home

Welcome to the Stamford & District Bowls League website.

We hope you will find the information here interesting and useful  - look around the website to find out more about the League.

The Stamford & District Bowls League has been promoting inter-club bowling in the local area since 1967. The League itself operates on two evenings a week – Mondays and Fridays. For 2023, we have 28 teams who will compete in three divisions. 

As well as the twice-weekly league matches, we run three competitions - the Boor & Wainwright Shield, the Duncomb Shield and the Oddfellows Charity Rosebowl competition. There is also the President's Gala, which supports the President's chosen charity for that year. For next season, 2023, we will also be running a new competition - the Secretary's Pairs competition.

In addition to the details of the fixtures and results, you will find profiles of each club, the league's rules and constitution and a short history of the league. There is also a Photo Gallery, a Club News page and an Events Diary; we hope you will let us know about events at your club that would interest other bowlers.
