Zones and Regions

NSW is large and there are 150 affiliated clubs with over 14,000 members. It is therefore impossible for the NSWBA to directly maintain links with all of them. Consequently the State is split into 4 zones (each with a NSWBA Councillor), further split into 15 regions (each with a representative) containing a smaller number of clubs. See table below for details.

A club's zone is based on the postcode of the club's premises. Details of the zones can be found on the Council page. Clubs can also see which zone and region they are in by viewing the Club details from the Find a club page.

Details of the Regional representatives, their role and contact details can be found on the NSW Regional Representatives page.
