The WWCBA comprises 69 Member Clubs, 22 Affiliated Leagues and 57 Affiliated local clubs. There are some 2700 players who take part in organised Leagues, Cups and Merit bowling through their involvement/membership of the 69 Member Clubs all of which are located in Birmingham and its environs. Listings of Member Clubs, Affiliated Leagues and Affiliated Clubs are included in the Association’s Handbook, downloadable from the website.
League bowling is provided through Premier, Alliance and Business Houses Divisions, each comprising 12 teams per division and can be of mixed gender.
The objectives and powers of the Association are to encourage, control, manage, regulate and develop the game of crown green bowling under the direct jurisdiction of the WWCBA.
The Association is managed by a Group of Executive Officers and Management Committee Members who meet monthly. Management of the Leagues, County Selection, Referees, Coaching, Competitions, Discipline and Development is delegated to autonomous Sub Committees that report monthly to the main Management Committee.
The Warwickshire Ladies County Crown Green Bowling Association is incorporated to and an integral part of WWCBA and is represented at the monthly WWCBA Management Committee meetings.
