History of the Dennington Sports Club
The Sports Club was formed in 1955. At that time, a variation of sports were played at different venues around the village. Today, the sports meadow is home to all. The field doubles as a football field in winter months and summer sports when warmer. We have a very active bowls club, a brand new tennis court and badminton is played in the Village Hall sports hall every Monday evening of non-summer months. We also host a children’s playground which has been recently refurbished.
The sports meadow is situated right beside the Village Hall and in conjunction with them, we are able to offer changing room facilities, toilets, a bar area, an indoor sports hall and also an excellent kitchen if foodstuff is required for functions.
If you are interested in hiring the sports field for an event, please contact Doris Dearing on Tel: 01728 638322 or by email.
