Group of bowlersWelcome to the home page of the Isle of Man Indoor Bowling Association. We play at The National Sports Centre, Groves Road, Douglas, next to the power station.

The excellent facilities provided at the NSC Bowls Hall include 5 rinks with a width of 4.6m each, a master scoreboard, electronic digital lane scoreboards and an informal spectator refreshment area.

We welcome new players of all age groups and ability and can provide coaching for the novice bowler. Why not come along and try indoor bowls a sport that can be played all year round in all weathers. We play league matches on Monday (Premier Pairs), Tuesday (First Division Pairs), Wednesday (Premier League) and Thursday (First Division League) evenings at 6.30pm.. We also have a Tuesday morning league starting at 10.00am.

The club also has a more relaxed social bowling meeting on Saturdays at 1.30pm. Played on a round robin basis with teams picked at random, this provides an excellent introduction for the new bowler. We also hold open days at the start of the new season where all are welcome to come and try our sport with the help and guidance of our more experienced players.
