Northamptonshire Indoor Bowling Association     



Bowls is a sport for life and for all ages, genders, and abilities. There are so many playing options available. 

You can play alone, with a team, a long time, a short time, socially, against your friends or play with the whole family!

  • Played in a safe, non-contact environment

  • A game of skill and judgement. But lots of fun!

  • Can be played socially or competitively

President 2023/24
Keith Thatcher, Rushden IBC.
I am looking forward to my year as NIBA President. I hope that I can live up to the standards of my predecessors, and that the county will enjoy success during my tenure

A NIBA County legend has retired. President in 2003/4, Hon Life Member and for many years Match Secretary. There are not enough words to describe his loyal service to the County. His endeavours as Match Secretary are second to none, tirelessly devoting time to raise county teams as well as travelling up hill and down dale across the country to support county teams. Your contribution to NIBA will be sorely missed, Richard. Enjoy your retirement.
