Irish Women's Bowling Association

Formed in 1947 the IWBA is the National Governing Body for the sport of women's bowls in Ireland.  Under it's umbrella it has four Associations, whose total of affiliated Clubs is 80, covering both Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland (where the Clubs are mainly located in the Dublin area). 

Each Association has its own league structure and cup competitions and meet annually in an Inter-Association tournament.

The IWBA aims, through the promotion of competition bowls, to enable players to develop their full potential at all levels, up to and including International representation. 

For those who are not so competitively minded, there is a place for recreational bowls at Club level and Clubs will welcome enquiries from prospective members.
