The Altrincham & South Manchester Bowling League has been in existence since 2001, when it merged with the old Altrincham Institutes League and the South Manchester Bowling League.
The League shall promote and organise Crown Green Bowls in compliance with the requirements of the British Crown Green Bowls Association.
At the end of the 2018 season, the League paid out close to £5000 prize money, in both team and individual events and also keeping a healthy balance in the accounts.
There are three divisions within the League and both male and female bowlers are allowed to play in teams comprising of 10 players a side. There is still scope for other teams to apply to join the league.

We had miserable conditions early on, but when it was time to get under way, the rain ceased and the Sale Excelsior green was superb to play on. Thanks go to the Sale Excelsior Bowling Section for allowing this competition to be played on their green after the original venue was deemed unfit. Many thanks must also go to the greensman Mr Noel Burrows for preparing a bowling green worthy of holding this final.(Tuesday 24 September 2019)

PETER KELSALL OPEN MERIT
The Peter Kelsall Open Merit eventualkly took place at the Quarry Bank green, Timperley on Sunday 1st September 2019. After a wet and cloudy start, the morning improved greatly and by lunchtime the green had dried out and was running 3 yards faster than at the start.
The eventual winner was an evergreen 84 year old Peter Kelsall, who got out of jail twice, once against Andy McGuigan when he was 15 - 6 down and eventually won 21-20, and then in the final against a very consistent John Gethins, when John was leading 18-8, and Peter stuck in and eventually won 21-20.
The photo shows Peter Kelsall receiving his winners trophy from long standing Committee member Andy Nolan.
Thanks to the Quarry Bank Bowling Section for allowing the use of their green and facilities to stage this competition final.
(Monday 19 August 2019)
This was the state of the Quarry Bank bowling green yesterday morning when the A.S.M. Peter Kelsall Open Merit Competition was due to take place. Consistent heavy rain throughout the night and during Sunday morning meant that it had to be cancelled and as most if not all other local greens were in a similar state, it was not possible to move the competition elsewhere.
It is hoped that a new date will be found later in the season, so please watch this space.(Monday 29 July 2019)
