History of the League

 

The Erdington & District Midweek Bowling Leagues' inaugural meeting was held at the Greyhound Inn, Erdington on 13th December 1961.

 

The league was initially set-up to allow shop-keepers the opportunity to play bowls on the day they traditionally closed early, rather than Saturday afternoons when most were busy.
