Objectives and Eligibility
The objectives of the S&DBA are to foster the spirit of friendly rivalry amongst the male members of clubs in the S&DBA, and to further and promote the sport of Lawn Bowls by arranging competitions and friendly matches with affiliated and other clubs and associations.
Membership of the Sutton & District Bowling Association (S&DBA) is open to outdoor Lawn Bowls clubs affiliated to the Surrey County Bowling Association, and whose greens are located within a 7 mile radius of Sutton Rail Station.   The area of the circle on the map below shows the geographical coverage of the S&DBA.

---------------------------------------------

About Us
We run a full programme of year-round Indoor and Outdoor friendly matches and 6 very competitive Outdoor Competitions for our affiliated clubs.  Additionally, starting in 2016 we will be acting as custodians of the Men's and Ladies' Past Times Trophy competitions for affiliated and non-affiliated clubs and which will be run separately from the S&DBA competitions - click here to visit the dedicated Past Times page on this website.
Club affiliation
has the great benefit of enabling club members to play as often or as little as they want by entering our competitions and/or playing in our friendly matches and does not commit a club to a possibly unwanted hectic programme of league matches because we don't run any leagues.  To learn about our competitions please visit our 'Competitions' page on this site.
The S&DBA warmly invites applications for membership from bowls clubs within its catchment area who share our objectives and are interested in participating in our activities described on this website.
