The North Yorkshire
Short Mat Bowling Association

Welcome to the NYSMBA

Our Association exists to serve the interests of our members in Short Mat Bowls Clubs that are located within North Yorkshire – England’s largest county.

We all enjoy playing this great little sport and want to see the game thrive and expand. For those with ambitions beyond mere “social bowling”  we strive to provide opportunities for players  to compete at all levels.

By joining our Association our members know that they are making a positive contribution to the running of the game at local, regional and national levels – at minimal cost.

They also know they will have fun, make friends and have regular excercise.

Within the pages on this site you will find information regarding us and our activities. We hope you find what you are looking for and that you will re-visit us on a regular basis to keep up to date and informed about what is going on in “God’s Own County”.
