Walkington Bowling Club
Walkington Bowling Club was formed on 31 January 1977 on land leased from the Sherwood Charity.
Funds to complete the laying of the green were provided by the Playing Field committee. In 1977 the annual fees to play bowls were £6 per person.
Funds for subsequent work to build the original clubhouse and two further extensions were raised through the Playing Field committee and the Bowling Club committee.
More recently, new equipment stores have been installed and the upper sections of the concrete driveway have been relaid to improve access to the main car-parking area.

Due to the Coronavirus epidemic the club was unable to open as usual in April and all the normal leagues and competitions have been cancelled for this year. The club reopened for limited solo and social use on 1st June, with a rink booking system and strict rules in place to protect players. A reduced membership fee of £10 plus £1 per game is being charged for this 2020 season.
