Saturday Inter-League

The Saturday Indoor Inter-League at Kingsthorpe Bowling Club has been running since 2009 and was introduced by KBC members to encourage teams from across the county to get together when the outdoor greens are closed. The League is open to all indoor bowlers and to those outdoor players who may not normally play bowls at all in the winter. It is also open to both men and women.
The league has undergone several changes since its inception with varying numbers of teams and numbers of games played but the format has remained constant. Cash prizes are awarded to the winners and runners-up.

2024-25 – New Sponsor!

The most significant change in the league for many years will see the introduction of a major sponsor for the 2024-25 season. Northants Testing, owned by KBC member Nick Murray and his partner, Shari Craddock, supply specialist Electrical & Compliance Testing services for businesses across the UK providing great customer service and a dedication to safety. They will be providing a trophy for Division 1 winners together with guaranteed prize money for winners and runners-up in both divisions.
