The Western Australian Ladies’ Bowling Association was formed in August 1935 with the first pennant competition starting that year for just a dozen clubs. After a hiatus in 1936-37 competition was restarted with two divisions of teams and grew rapidly over the next twenty years with seven divisions established. Unification of the Men’s and Women’s association during the 2004/5 season saw the Women’s competition changed to a similar structure to the Men’s with Division 1 Red, White and Green (North and South) introduced. Despite Women’s Friday Night and Saturday Pennant Competitions starting up the Tuesday Pennant Competition has remained the major pennant competition for Women in metropolitan Western Australia.
Manning Memorial Bowling Club has emerged as the club to beat in modern times winning 13 of the 15 competitions.
