The Harrogate Amateur Bowling Association consists of 2 highly competative leagues
made up from clubs around Harrogate and the surrounding districts.

running on a Monday and Tuesday evening. The second is a Veterans League running on a
The league has many North Yorkshire players, with North Yorkshire
competing in the National Federation of Crown Green Bowls championship.

There is a proposal in place to use the BowlsNet online service for the 2014 season. BowlsNet is a hosted online service offering live/up-to-the minute access to the current season and peruse any uploaded previous seasons. Features include:
• view and enter match results
• view league tables, team results, player results and averages
• view and update team contacts/green details/player registrations
• print reports or paste into word processor/spreadsheet/e-mail etc.
• full administration control of your own database.
The Harrogate Forum has now been retired. However the Beighton Bowler site has an excellent
forum that covers all of Yorkshire including North, West and South.
They have a dedicated Harrogate section so it makes perfefct sense to use this
facility. I would recommend Harrogate bowlers sign up to Beighton Bowler to ensure
you can have your say and keep up with latest views and opinions.
Your old user names and passwords will not work so you will need to sign up
to Beighbton Bowler afresh.
As the league campaign came to a close there were cheers and tears throughout.
Black Swan celebrated their retention of the Division 1 title with commiserations due to Billon Spartans and Dacre Eagles who are relegated. It was one of the most exciting finishes in Division 2 for many a year as Wayside Wanderers clinched the title on the last day. After a fine season Low Harrogate A will also join the Wanderers in the top division having secured promotion. Dacre Falcons and Low Harrogate B finished in the bottom two places respectively.
