Welcome to the Leeds and District CGBA Web Site





Leeds & District CGBA is an amalgamation of West Yorkshire County, Leeds ABA and Leeds & District Bowling Association. They successfully agreed unification in January 2002.

The benefits of this unification, are that the new body manage County representation, this means that that the district body, as a member of Yorkshire County, is responsible for all competitions, merit cups ties, and league bowling in the district. Having all bowling under one body eliminates silly rivalries for venues and greens, whilst providing a well managed programme for the bowlers of Leeds. It is the sole negotiating body for bowling in the district.
