6 New teams apply to join Winter League

Winter League

The Winter League is now open for applications for new teams for the 2024-25 season starting this October. The League has increased in numbers each year and continues to confirm its status as the fastest growing league in the country.

The working assumption is that a further ten new teams will join the League for the new season and already six teams have come forward to apply to join. They include Hanging Heaton B, Elland WMC and Kirkheaton C&BC B who have all confirmed their team applications. We await more details from three more interested teams before accepting their applications.

We also have two new host greens that have come forward which will enable us to extend the competition from 6 to 8 divisions if the demand is there. Our preference is to move to 8 teams in a division as this fits better with the host green clubs aim of a 14-week season. This enables them to fit in their green maintenance programmes at the end of the summer season and prior to the start of the next summer season. If you would like to learn more about what is involved in entering a team in the League or becoming a host green then please get in touch.

The closing date for new team applications for the new season is Monday 1 July 2024. You can learn more what winter bowling is all about by reading our Ultimate Guide to Winter Bowling.
