Newark Indoor Bowls and Boccia Club have made the finals in six categories of the Newark and Sherwood Annual Sports Awards taking place at Newark Palace Theatre this month.

What more can we say "So pleased I chose the Southwell Swine as part of my training regime for Nottingham half marathon. Hardest run I've ever done but so enjoyed everything about it. Well organised, well marked out, brilliantly marshalled, great atmosphere and great food?"

For many runners the event to run in September is the Robin Hood ½ or full marathon.

This summer we were pleased to host the County Championships for the Nottinghamshire Archery Society, when 70 archers from clubs county-wide entered this record-status event, which was organised by David Salmon, one of our committee members.

Southwell Rugby Club proudly opened their new Clubhouse this month. The new £500,000 facility was officially launched by RFU President Jonathan Dance and Robert Jenrick MP.
