Scunthorpe Sports club

IN APRIL 2021 THE SPORTS CLUB CLOSED IT’S DOORS FOR THE LAST TIME.

I THOUGHT IT MIGHT BE FITTING TO SHARE A FEW PHOTOS FACTS AND MEMORIES FROM THE CLUB.

THE CLUB HELD 19 ONE STAR OPEN TOURNAMENTS AND GAVE OUT OVER £25 000 IN PRIZE MONEY.

THE CLUB HAD NUMEROUS TOP CLASS PLAYERS THROUGH ITS DOORS OVER THE YEARS INCLUDING DENIS NEALE AND NICKY JARVIS (past legends)

AMONG THE CURRENT CROP WE HAVE HAD CRIS DORAN ,TOM JARVIS,DARIOUS KNIGHT, MATT WARE , DAMIEN NICHOLS , SAM MAYBE ,SAM WILSON, GAVIN EVANS, VICTOR SHI AND SIMON NOUTCH TO JUST NAME A FEW TOP PLAYERS WHO HAVE VISITED AND PLAYED AT THE SPORTS CLUB.

THE SPORTS CLUB ALSO HOSTED THE LAST LINCOLNSHIRE CLOSED CHAMPIONSHIPS AND WAS DUE TO HOLD THE NEXT ONE ALSO, BUT COVID PUT AND END TO THAT.

THE SPORTS CLUB HAS HOSTED SEVERAL COUNTY MATCH WEEKENDS AND IS NOW GETTING WELL ESTABLISHED ON THE COUNTY CIRCUIT.

THE SPORTS CLUB HAS HOSTED THE LAST 12 SCUNTHORPE CLOSED CHAMPIONSHIPS AS WELL AS THE THE LAST 5 DONCASTER CLOSED CHAMPIONSHIPS.

NOT TO MENTION ALL THE LOCAL TEAMS WHO HAVE MADE THE SPORTS CLUB THEIR HOME VENUE.
