About the NSBL

The New Surrey Bowls League (NSBL) is a male outdoor flat green bowls organisation open to private clubs only.   It was formed primarily to provide more competitive and attractive inter-club matches than were then available in existing bowls leagues and bowling associations in South West London and the North and East Surrey areas.

The inaugural meeting of the NSBL took place at Malden BC in October 1995 and was attended by the 8 founding private outdoor bowls clubs.   By the start of the first season (1996) 3 additional clubs had joined.    This has now (March 2017) expanded to the following 13 member clubs :

Belmont                  Carshalton Beeches                Cheam*          Cheam Fields        Dorking               Heathfield              Magdalen Park                       Malden*                South London           Southey                       Supreme*               Sutton                                   West Wimbledon  

*   Founder club


Currently the NSBL runs the following :

  •  Fours League played on a weekend afternoon, each match comprising 3 rinks
  •  Triples League played on weekday afternoons, each match comprising 3 triples
  • Top Ten knockout competition comprising one each Singles, Pairs, Triples and Fours  playing simultaneously on   the same green
  • Ron Willson Triples competition comprising one rink home / one rink away triples, both Triples playing simultaneously.

In both the Fours and Triples Leagues the clubs play each other once per season.

Total membership for the 2016 season will be 15 clubs of which 9 will play in the Triples League and 11 in the Fours League.   All clubs except Dorking play in the two competitions.

Membership applications must be received at least 2 months before the NSBL AGM held in October each year.   New applications are voted on by the current member clubs at an AGM in a card vote with more than 70% of the membership being required to support admission.   The maximum number of new clubs admitted is set at 2 per league per season.

Although not defined in the NSBL Constitution the general agreement of the current member clubs is to limit participation in each of the Triples and Fours leagues to a maximum of 16 clubs.    Clubs may join and play in one or other or both the leagues.    All member clubs may play in the competitions.

Representation and Management

All clubs are required to appoint one Delegate to the NSBL to actively represent their club at Committee Meetings, usually 3 / 4  per year, plus the AGM.   Each club must provide the NSBL with a reliable e-mail address, preferably that of their Delegate, through which correspondence with the NSBL will be conducted and league results and tables posted.

The winners of the weekend Fours League host an annual Presentation Evening, usually in February or March, at which all members clubs are expected to attend.

Three Officers are elected by all the club delegates to carry out management of the NSBL.   These are the Chairman, Secretary, and Press Officer.   The Treasurer’s role is combined with one of these positions.

Match meals and refreshments are mutually agreed between clubs as are the charges made for them.

No green fees are chargeable for any NSBL match.

Finals Day for the two competitions is held on a neutral green of a member club, normally in the morning of the 3rd Sunday in September, a buffet lunch being provided out of NSBL funds for all players and match officials.
