One of the Eastgate Club’s great attractions is its delightful location in uphill Lincoln. Although it is not far from a number of busy main roads, it provides a tranquil and relaxing setting for the activities of the Club’s members.
The extensive grounds are surrounded by many mature trees and these provide a pleasing backdrop and give a sense of privacy and protection from the busy world outside. There are also fine views of the towers of Lincoln Cathedral. People who are visiting the Club for the first time, even longstanding local residents, are often surprised by what they see and have not previously realised that the Club was even there.
In addition to the facilities for the playing of tennis, squash and bowls, members have the benefit of a large car-park and a comfortable and well-appointed clubhouse. The clubhouse contains a licensed bar and also provides catering facilities. The grounds provide an excellent venue for social events or just relaxing and watching others exerting themselves on the tennis courts and the bowling green.
Members are encouraged to participate as fully as possible in the Club’s activities, whether as sports players or in other ways. There are always jobs which need to be done in order to keep things going and volunteers are always welcome and appreciated.
Like any other organisation, the Club has to have rules and regulations for the proper conduct of its affairs. These are not intended to restrict in any way members’ enjoyment of the Club’s facilities but rather to ensure that all members can enjoy these facilities to the full.
