North Greenwich Bowls Club entered the East Ham and District League Competition for the first time in 1980 and were overall winners, beating every other team both home and away apart from the bottom two teams, where NGBC beat one each and lost one each. As there were 14 teams in the league, NGBC won 24 out of the 26 games played. Since then, they have won or been placed in the League another four times up to 2005.
