The men's district association began in 1920 and now has 28 affiliated clubs.

They organise leagues (see more under the league tab), competitions and representative matches. Application to play in any of the representative matches can be made directly online at http://www.bowlssouthampton.org.uk/fixtures.html

In 2017 Bill Bailey from Meon Valley was honoured to be their President and Adie Booth is currently the Match and fixtures secretary.

Peter Fry is our delegate for meetings of the Association.

S&DBA also hosts the annual Southampton Open tournament each July at their headquarters, Atherley BC in Southampton, and utilises local bowling greens in the early rounds.
