Daventry Tigers Bowls Club evolved from the closure of the Daventry British Timken Bowls Club when the company closed the local plant in 1997. A group of employees petitioned the company to retain the bowls club and were successful, the company agreed to this and added an area to be designated a sports ground.
The name Daventry Tigers sprang from the sports club logo which was a Tiger and so the new club was formed, the club held together through 6 years of upheaval whilst the old factory was pulled down and a new housing estate built in its place. In 2002 they were joined by the Drayton Grange Football Club and formed the Mayfield Park Sports Club which now manages the site.
A new clubhouse was built to replace the old one that occupied a site for 10 houses and now forms the centre piece of an excellent new sports complex. Although it is still a small club, it is renown for it friendly attitude excellent green and facilities.
