INTERESTING FACT: Hawcoat Park Sports Club is an independent "Community Amateur Sports Club", which is owned and managed by its members. It is still known by the local taxi drivers as "Vickers Sports Club", as it was originally operated exclusively for employees of the Barrow shipyard, but this is no longer the case. The club supports a wide range of sports activities and teams, including rugby union, football, cricket, tennis, crown green bowling, shooting, archery, tennis, and table tennis. There are many music and sporting events throughout the year. Indoor and outdoor facilities are available for private hire, and are popular for charity fundraising events, conferences, weddings, and funerals! Membership is open to all.
