Beckingham Bowls Club

by | 1 April 2023 | Gainsborough, Hobbies, Sports Club

Beckingham Bowls Club celebrates its 75th birthday in May this year, and the Club is running a campaign to gain new members to take Beckingham and Saundby’s only remaining sports club to its 100th birthday and beyond.

Bowls provides good exercise and social wellbeing for people of all ages. Anybody with or without bowling experience who is interested in joining the Club should phone 07935 549045 to register their interest.

Open taster sessions will be arranged to suit, with coaching provided by experienced players, and bowls will be available. The outdoor season runs from mid-April until September, and membership provides league matches, club competitions, open days at numerous clubs, and social bowling on one of the best bowling greens in the area.

Plans have been drawn up for a new Clubhouse to replace the demolished tearoom / store and the existing pavilion. Funds secured so far amount to almost £20,000 from donations for this community project, and grants are now being sought to reach what is an ambitious target by the end of 2023.

Beckingham’s bowling green is situated on the Beckingham cum Saundby Village Hall and Playing Field Trust land.
