Dunholme has many organisations that are run by volunteers.  Being a comparatively large village, for Lincolnshire, there is a wide variety of sports and social activities.  Contacts are listed below:-

The Club has five rinks in a modern building attached to the village hall.  It has a cafeteria and a licenced bar.   It is an exceeding popular club with members coming not only from Dunholme but the surrounding area of West Lindsey.

We are all pleased to report that our official re-opening was very successful, attended & enjoyed by our members and especially the invited guests.  Our main sponsor from Biffa Awards spoke on our successful achievement for such a small village.

By the time you read this we will have had our three open mornings, to encourage others to take part in a sport which enhances health, & mental well-being, as well as being a social gathering, ideal for making new friends.  If you missed these days just telephone the Club, 01673 861683, when other arrangements can be made for you to have a free trial and a look at us and our facilities and make up your own mind.

We are open every day from 10.30  and every weekday evening till 9pm so just pop in you will be made welcome have a cup of tea or something stronger and have a look at the fantastic facility in your village.

All our Clubs & County leagues, will be up and running in mid September running through to Spring of next year.

Our next major event will be our Tournament Day, on the 19th. October, which is our first fund raising event of the year. Teams are always welcomed you do not have to be a member this is an open tournament.

This year instead of giving to a charity we are going to buy a defibrillator to have in the club and the hope is that we never need to use it but it will give us those few important minutes  if the unthinkable happens.

Welton Football Club

As we swing into October the football season for Welton FC is well underway, with all the players, manager, coaches and parents thoroughly looking forward to the new season ahead. Both of new Under 7’s sides are relishing the new season, with our Under 7 Arrows side looking a really good outfit, with players to watch for the future.

 The new sides that we are producing at Under 7’s are benefitting massively from our Saturday morning sessions that we hold for Soccer Tots, aged 3 to 5 and Under 6’s for Year 1 children. The sessions are run side by side each and Soccer Tots is an excellent way for youngsters to be introduced to sport and football. The sessions are from 10 to 11:15 and are £2 per session. At the moment we are on the grass at Manor Park but when the weather turns we will move onto the 3G. For further details on Soccer Tots contact Paul Carrick on 07917 053128 or joc21@btinternet.co.uk and for Under 6’s contact Jonathan Hodges on 07557 944149 or jonno_hodges@hotmail.co.uk.


 I would like to welcome both new Under 7 Mangers Dave Gilbert and Matthew Wilson and their players to the club along with Simon Hopkin who is the new manager of Under 11 Arrows having previously being the Assistant Manager and Darren Benson who has taken over the Under 12’s. Matt Wood who has previously managed a side at the club is now the manager of the Under 10 Arrows having taken over from Anthony Morris and Nico Williams is the new manager of our Men’s team taking over duties from long term manager Mark Atkin.


 Two other new sides have been formed this season to make up 17 teams in the Purple colours of Welton FC and they are both managed by former managers of the club. Our Vice Chairman Garry Crowther has decided to come out of Football management retirement after a year and is the manager of the newly formed Under 9 Bombers. Tom Luther also returns to the club to reform an Under 15 side that he previously managed when they disbanded at Under 12’s. Good Luck to all those new managers and their teams for the forthcoming season.

 I will continue to update you on the progress of our sides throughout the season and hopefully we will be celebrating some success come the end of the campaign!!!


 Managers and Coaches of the club recently enjoyed a day out courtesy of Lincolnshire FA at the National Football Development Centre, otherwise known as St George’s Park in Burton. Around 12 representatives from Welton FC went and had a tour of the facility as well as dusting off their boots and enjoying a coaching session that was put on for them to learn new drills and tips. A couple of tight hamstrings felt in the days that followed, no wonder as the coaching part of the day took part on the Michael Owen pitch!!!

 On Saturday 1st November the football club are going on a trip to the Britannia Stadium in Stoke to watch Stoke City take on West Ham United. The participants in the trip will have a stadium tour before the game, when after they will take their seats and watch some of world footballs best talents. Players who wish to go need to get details off their team managers and hand slips in before Friday 3rd October.

 Well done to the Under 16 team managed by Tim Smith, whose coaches and parents won the Managers Tournament held at the beginning of September!

Now the weather is here for a spot of tennis, wouldn’t it be nice if the Dunholme Tennis Club was open and you could enjoy the nice hot days playing with the children or just your partner. 

Well with your help this could be done.  Dunholme Parish Council are looking for a small committee of people to reopen and run the Dunholme Tennis Club again. 
They have spent a lot of money on the new sports pavilion and making the area look nice, so the surroundings you can play in are now much better. 
If you would be interested in forming or being on the committee please contact the Parish Clerk Laura Richardson at 30 Wentworth Drive,
or e-mail dunholmepc@btinternet.com or telephone 01673 862738
