In November 1972 eight clubs in Huntingdonshire namely Brampton Institute, Fenstanton, Huntingdon St Peters, Literary, Mid Anglia Police, Montague, Somersham Town and Warboys White Hart formed a steering committee to make an application to the English Bowling Association (EBA) for affiliation to the new County of Huntingdon and Peterborough. Following the first application for affiliation on 15th December 1972 there were many exchanges of letters, objections from neighbouring counties but on the 7th August 1973 a letter was received from James Elms stating that the General Purposes Committee of the EBA agreed to accept an application for affiliation in 1974 in the County of Huntingdonshire and all those clubs within the county boundary as existing on the 31st March 1965.
Unfortunately we cannot give a history for Huntingdonshire Ladies EBA other than from records their first Lady President took office in 1977.
The County became unified (men and ladies) in 2010 and became Huntingdonshire Bowls.
Although only a small county with 23 clubs we have a very forward looking committee who work exceptionally hard behind the scenes.
We are extremely proud of all our players, past and present international players, county players who have made their mark in our history and the support the county receives from itsaffiliated clubs.
We have a county association website www.huntsbowls.co.uk and a very active Facebook page Huntingdonshire Bowls with up to date information and excellent images.
