The Bowls Club ...

Bowls green
Beckingham Bowls Club has been running since 1948 and is the only surviving sports club in the village. The club has teams in 4 leagues:

Gainsborough Standard Bowls League
Monday & Wednesday evenings
Isle of Axholme Pensioners’ League North
Isle of Axholme Pensioners’ League Central
Tuesday afternoons
Isle of Axholme Evening League
Fridays
The season runs from mid April to early September and in addition to the league matches, there are Club singles, doubles and triples competitions for all members, as well as the opportunity to enter individual league competitions. During March, members get together with their partners for Sunday lunch at a local hostelry, followed by the Annual Clean Up in the middle of May, and the Management Committee meet regularly to control the affairs of the Club. The green and site is wholly maintained and improved by members, with funding raised from annual subscriptions, match fees, open and social events, visitors’ fees, and hire of green as a neutral venue for league and individual competitions
The format of the open events may change from year to year to maintain interest, and in July 2015 for example, the Beckingham Open Pairs was held over a full day at the weekend when 28 pairs of players competed for a trophy and cash prizes. Food prepared by members and their partners is available all day in the Village Hall. For details of the format of current events, please click on “Latest Bowls Club News” below.
At the end of the season a Presentation Evening (including a meal) is arranged for members and their partners in the Village Hall. The A.G.M is usually held in January in the Recreation Room.
The Club is open to everyone over the age of thirteen, and Club Nights are held on Thursdays from 6pm, when anyone interested in playing and finding out more about full or just social membership is welcome to come along. Non members can play on the green at other times if accompanied by a paid up member. Woods are available and flat shoes are required on the green. Please telephone Roger Platts on 01427 848559 to find out more.
