Our History

The club was founded in 1890 and was initially just a room for cards, dominoes and draughts etc and was originally situated in the high street where Titash Indian resturant is. After various relocations within Downham Market over the years, it’s current location is now on Bridge Street where it has been since 1909.
In 1930 the games room gained the addition of a bar, in 1948 the land behind the property became the bowling green and on 22nd January 1993, the Rt. Hon. Gillian Shephard MP, secretary of state for employment, opened the Paul Hawkins funtion room and the club has gone from strength to strength ever since.
