Lawn Bowls Association of Hong Kong, China

The present Lawn Bowls Association of Hong Kong, China (LBA) was incorporated on 11th March 1961 under the Companies Ordinance, Chapter 32, Laws of Hong Kong and became one of the National Sports Associations of the Sports Federation & Olympic Committee of Hong Kong, China. Within the Articles of the Association, it is established that the prime object of the Association is, “to promote the sport of lawn bowls”.

The LBA have promoted the sport in many ways which can be summarized as follows:

  1. by organizing annual Premier and Triples Leagues with home and away fixtures;
  2. by holding all year round National Competitions which include Singles, Indoor Singles, Pairs, Triples and Fours Competitions, etc;
  3. by participating in international competitions outside Hong Kong, ie, World Championships, Asian Pacific Championships, World Cup, Asia Pacific Indoors and Asian Championships, etc;
  4. by organizing international competition in Hong Kong, e.g. the annual International Bowls Classic since 1981, the 4th Asia Pacific Championships in 1991, World Cup and World Junior Cup in 2005, World Junior Cup in 2007 and the World Champion of Champions in 2011;
  5. by organizing coaching courses for beginners; and
  6. by developing and introducing young athletes into the sport.

When first formed, LBA used Kowloon Bowling Green Club as its registered office until 1976 when we were allocated a shared office in the Queen Elizabeth Stadium Complex in Wanchai. In 1995, when the Sports House (now the Olympic House) in So Kon Po was built, we were allocated a much bigger office for our own use. The LBA is still located at Olympic House.

Management of the Association is vested in the Council of Management which, when first formed in 1961, consisted of six officers and twelve members. Today, this number had increased to nine officers and forty three councilors who meet, roughly, on a six-weeks basis when the views on a variety of subjects affecting the sport are reflected, discussed and determined.
