The Northern England Short Mat Bowling Association (NESMBA)

formerly known as the ESMBA (NORTHERN ZONE)

At the 2004 AGM a resolution was put forward by Humberside to change the name of the former Northern Zone to the Northern England Short Mat Bowling Association or NESMBA. This was in response to an ESMBA request to remove their initials from the title and also because it was seen as being more appropriate.

The NESMBA is a grouping of several of the northern counties (currently 7) originally set up in 1990. At this time the ESMBA recognised four Zones (South West, Central, Eastern and Northern) but the idea failed to be developed by them and soon fell out of favour. Of the four, the Northern Zone survived (now renamed) and is run by its own committee. With no official role to fulfil as far as the ESMBA is concerned, the NESMBA now has two functions - to organise a local northern Inter-County League and the annual Championships. North Yorkshire participates fully in both of these.

Note that the inclusion of the Stockport Metro league in 2001 was possible due to an amendment to the NESMBA Constitution allowing for the inclusion of "Areas" that are not recognised as ESMBA counties. Within the ESMBA, this league is not recognised as a separate county and therefore its members still affiliate via other County Associations - primarily Cheshire.

Former members -  Lancashire (left in 2015);  Merseyside (left in 2012); Cheshire (left in 1993); Cumbria (left in 2006); Staffordshire (left 1998, rejoined 2010)
