Club History

Southwater Sports Club has been in existence for over 128 years and provides an essential facility for the whole Southwater community. It started as a Tin shed for Cricketers to get changed in, and in 1963 the shed was demolished and the Cricketers erected a new wooden structure with two changing rooms and a small Bar. In 1975 a further extension was added providing two more changing rooms. In the early 80’s local Landlady May Brown became Head Barmaid and ran the Club for many years really moving it forward. In 1982 The Cricket Club amalgamated with Southwater Football Club and the name changed to Southwater Sports Club. In 1985 the Club was once again demolished by its members and a new bigger building was constructed with further extensions being added in the 80s and 90s.

In April 2019 we moved to a brand new location and welcome all new members. We offer Football and Cricket from Colts up to Veteran ages, which are played all year round. In addition, we have Darts, Bar Billiards and Pool teams in which new players are always welcome.

This year we also have on site a Multi-use games area (MUGA) Pitch and a brand new Tennis section. We have a thriving social section with frequent events and Bingo is played every Tuesday from 8pm. We also have 4 large TV screens showing sport from all terrestrial channels, Sky and BT Sport.
