Welcome to the League Website

The League was formed in 1936 and currently comprises 30 teams divided into 5 Divisions. The clubs are all situated within the area stretching from Lancing along the coast to Newhaven and inland to Lewes. All League matches start at 6.0p.m. on Tuesday evenings from mid May to August with a break in July to accommodate the Hove Open Bowls Tournament.

This site contains details of the League's current Officers and member clubs, fixture and league tables for 2017, rules of both the league and Bill Hawkins Cup competitions and a schedule of Inter League Representative and friendly fixtures for 2017.
