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.
