Essex County Bowling Association Group 6

Welcome to the Group 6 Bowls Website


The updated draws for all the competitions are now available to view on the competition page along with the competitors list and competition guidelines.

For any clarification or further information, contact the Group Secretary



Please be advised that the entries for the above competitions are now closed, with the full compliment of entries received (32) in each competition.

Thank you for your response in achieving this great result.

We apologise to those who were thinking of entering and thought they had until the 1st July, but we were overwelmed by the response and couldn't increase the numbers of entries.

The draws will be available next week and will be sent to each entrant as well as being available on the 'Competitions' page on this website



With the relaxing of some of the restrictions regarding outdoor bowling recently, Group 6 officers would like to confirm that three competitions WILL be available later in the summer, when we hope (expect) there to be even greater relaxation of the restrictions.

The competitions are:-

  • Singles
  • Pairs
  • Triples

In Triples and Pairs, players do not have to be from the same club.

There will be no entry fees for those players who enter.

The competitions are for men only.

Because of time contraints, the entries will be limited to 32 in each competition.

The competitions will run from late July and be subject to the Government restrictions in place at the time and specific bowling guidelines relating to your safety, these will be issued with the draws in early July 

For those players who would like to enter but their own club is currently closed or may not open this season, please indicate this in your entry and Group 6 will organise a rink at a club that is open.

Club/Competitors are requested to contact the Group 6 Secretary


preferably by email, by 1st July, giving details of their entry i.e.

  • Competition (Singles/Pairs/Triples)
  • Telephone number
  • email address

The finals will be held at Essex County on Sunday 20th September


GROUP 6 Programme 2020

May Update

As a result of a recent survey of all Group 6 clubs and the subsequent replies, the Group 6 Officers have decided with much reluctance, to cancel the remaining Group 6 league games for this season.

The replies indicated that 25% of Group 6 clubs have either closed for the season or were not prepared to take part in the league in whatever form it might have taken.

That being the case, the officers agreed that running the league in some form and maintaining its integrity would not be a viable proposition.

The officers have also agreed to cancel the planned friendlies, due to take place in July

On a more positive note, we hope it might be possible to hold some form of inter-club competition and individual competitions for those interested, later in the season, if legislation allows.

In the meantime. stay safe, and stay positive.


County Representative Games 2020

This message confirms our worst fears that the ECBA has officially 'cancelled' the 2020 Ashford Cup, with no competition taking place this year.

Also; be advised that the ECBA have 'postponed' the 2020 Wally Ball and Inter Group Knockout as well as some of the County individual competitions, in the hope that it may be possible to play them in the 2nd half of the summer, if the current lockdown is relaxed or removed.

The ECBA will make a decision before 30th June at the latest, Group 6 will advise you accordingly.

All the above information is available as well as other important information on the ECBA website https://www.ecba.co.uk/ecba-news
