Competitions and Trophies

Singles Championship

In 1962 a cup was presented to the Association for a Singles Championship, which has proved to be a popular item on the bowling calendar.  It is held throughout the outdoor season, with the early rounds being zoned to cut down on travelling.  The Semi Finals and Finals are held on a single day towards the end of the season in September.

The Miniature Internationals

The Miniature Internationals are played annually between the Bowling Associations of the London Welsh, London Scottish and the London Irish, joined later by the London & District BA.  In 2012 the L&DBA became the London English BA.

The outdoor competition started in 1961 with each Association being represented by 6 rinks who play for a ntrophy presented by C.E. Guinness. Since 1973 the Barr Trophy has been presented annually to the Irish four with the highest aggregate score on the day of the Miniature Outdoor International. In the event of a tie, the four winning the most ends would receive the trophy and each would be presented with a prize at the Annual Dinner

 The indoor competition started in 1978, again with each Association represented by 6 rinks who play for an inscribed, silver trophy presented by Bill and Pat Gibbs of the Croyden Club. Since the 1984/1985 season the Limavady Trophy has been presented annually to the Irish four with the highest aggregate score on the day of the Miniature Indoor International. In the event of a tie, the four winning the most ends would receive the trophy and each would be presented with a prize at the Annual Dinner.

Those members selected to play in the these competition are presented with the Miniature International Badge.
