Welcome to the Northeast Division (NED)
Stretched from New England to Southern Virginia and out to Western Pennsylvania the Northeast Division is the birthplace of lawn bowls in the United States of America.
In the early 1900's the American Lawn Bowls Association was formed in Buffalo, NY and continues today as BOWLS USA with clubs spanning from coast to coast.
Our division is a very active one with tournaments nearly every other week during the summer as well as an annual week-long open tournament with potential visitors from all over the globe.
The Northeast Division supports a strong local club base and encourages clubs to join and spread their wings to other clubs and more competition. We support clubs who foster strong camaraderie, league play and social events throughout the year and who seek to promote and grow the sport for future generations to enjoy.
The Northeast division has a long tradition of excellence with several national champions and even a world champion in its past and current membership. All the clubs welcome guests who want to try out this sport and joining is easy.
Contact us today and we'll get you started in a game that you can play and enjoy for a lifetime. It is a great family game with husbands and wives playing at the same time with their children. It is not unheard of to have three generations all playing on the same green. We all have witnessed 12 year olds competing against 80 year olds, grandfathers against grand-daughter and brothers teaming up for 2 and 3 decades. It is truly a sport one can play and compete at a high level for many many years. The most common phrase we hear from new members who came to the game in retirement is, "I wish I knew about this game before!"
Come give it a try!
