Winter League: 10 new teams and counting

Winter League

Interest in joining the Winter League for the new season in October continues to mount with 10 new teams now confirmed and more expected. To help Veterans League teams complete their plans the deadline for new teams has been put back 48 hours until noon on Wednesday 6 July so allowing teams to meet and finalise arrangements on their usual Monday or Tuesday matchday.

The 10 new teams for the 2022-23 Winter League season so far are Kirkheaton C&BC, Marsh Lib, Huddersfield RUBC, Netherton Con, Golcar C&BC, Brockholes 'B', Milnsbridge 'C', Springwood 'C', Lindley Lib 'B' and Almondbury BC 'B'. That means that we have five new clubs joining the League whilst 5 existing clubs extend their membership by adding more teams due to the high demand for playing time once bowlers have enjoyed their first experience.

We have the capacity to take even more teams so this is an invitation to any teams interested in getting involved to get in touch now. You don't need to make your club green available for play as all matches will be played on our 5 host greens throughout the season. The League caters for all levels of bowling with County bowlers in our top division and first-season bowlers amongst our lower division teams. Ladies are as equally welcome as male bowlers, we don't differentiate at all.

If you are enjoying the summer bowling season and wish that it could last much longer, well now it does, since the formation of the first-ever winter league in Huddersfield 3 years ago. It is a different experience due to the format and community spirit that develops with the same 8 teams playing on the same green each week. The hospitality of the 5 host greens being key in promoting that coming together.

A good starting point for anyone wanting to learn more about the Winter League and how it works is encouraged to read the posting entitled 'The Ultimate Guide to Winter Bowling'.

Any questions, information or details required should be directed to the League Secretary, Jeff Jacklin, and his contact details are below.

The League is now open to new team applications up until noon on Wednesday 6 July when registration will close and arrangements for the coming season can then begin. Applications should be made to the League Secretary by email at or by using the Contact Us facility on this website.
