In addition to the relevant sporting associations the club works closely with the City of York Council and is part of the council’s Sports Development Plan together with Schools and other organizations within the community.

The club is a registered charity run by a voluntary committee. We are constantly looking at ways in which to improve our facilities so if you think you have something to offer please contact our club secretary.

Lower Derwent Sports & Social Club is committed to providing sporting and recreational facilities for Elvington and the surrounding area.

As well as providing playing facilities for various sports such as football, cricket, netball and tennis for the local area, the club has an excellent clubhouse available for hire.

Our next long term goal is to expand the clubs playing areas due to the increased popularity of our football section. As you can see from the plan below we have now reached our capacity for any additional playing areas, so for any future development we will have to look beyond our current boundaries. This would be an immense investment for us and one which we would need financial help with from fundraising and sponsorship. If this is something you would be interested in as either a sponsor or fundraiser please get in touch.
