A-Z of Sports


The Bowls Development Alliance is an umbrella organisation for the sport of bowls,  designed to bring together partners who work in partnership to both GROW (recruit new members) and SUSTAIN (keep members) in the sport of Bowls

Bowls England (flat green outdoor) and the English Indoor Bowling Association Limited (flat green indoor) are two partners committed to working together within the alliance to influence the development of the sport of bowls across the country.

The BDA was awarded £2m by Sport England to deliver the “Growing the Sport of Bowls” plan during 2013-2017. The plan focuses on working in identified Hot Spot areas where there is both a high density of those 55 years and over and a proven latent demand for bowls.
