The Bowls Club ...

Bowls green
Beckingham Bowls Club has been running continuously since 1948 and is the only remaining sports club in the village. The Bowling Green is situated adjacent to the Village Hall on the land left in trust to the village which also includes a playpark, tennis courts, MUGA outdoor fitness area, playing fields and car park. We work closely with the Village Hall Committee and the Club has teams in 4 leagues:

Gainsborough Bowls League
Monday & Wednesday evenings
Isle of Axholme Evening League
Mainly Fridays
Isle of Axholme Seniors’ League (2 teams)
Tuesday afternoons
The season runs from mid - April to late September, and in addition to league matches, there are Club Singles, Pairs and Triples competitions for all members, as well as the opportunity to enter individual league competitions. During March, members and their partners get together for the Annual Lunch at a local hostelry (recent years have been at Gainsborough Golf Club), in July our Open Pairs Gala Day takes place over a full day with food and refreshments prepared in the Village Hall, whilst in October the Presentation Evening is usually held at the Willow Works, including a meal, drinks and entertainment.

The Bowling Green and site is wholly maintained and improved by a small band of Club volunteers to a very high standard, using free professional advice where necessary. Funding is raised from annual subscriptions, match fees, open and social events, visitors’ fees and hire of the Green for league team and individual competitions. In addition, funding/grants are sought where necessary from funding organisations.
The Club is open to everyone from the age of 13 and Club Nights are held on most Thursday evenings during the season from 6pm. New and non - members are welcome at our Club Nights and other times, but must be accompanied by a fully paid - up member. Please telephone Roger Platts on 01427 848628 to learn more. Monthly reports and other information can be found by clicking on the links below.

The Green closed for play on 28 September 2021 until mid – April 2022, but Maintenance continues throughout the Winter and early Spring.
