Immediate Past President
The Yorkshire Ladies Indoor Bowling Association have two inter county leagues; the Yorkshire Inter Club league and the North Eastern Ladies Leagues.
To become affiliated to the association you have to join the Yorkshire League. The North Eastern League is usually for ladies who haven't played for long and for them to get involved in a competitive match. Clubs are not forced to play in this league as part of the affiliation but clubs can only have a team in this league if they have one in the Yorkshire League. They are both played on Saturdays but not on the same day. 2 teams play away and 2 play at home.
Yorkshire also compete in the Atherley Trophy which is full County level with every county throughout the country competing for this major honour.
