The seniors section at Barkway is called "The Barkers".
- The Barkers normally meet Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings for scheduled events or a "swindle".
- Anyone can play with the Barkers, though only those qualifying as 50+ can win an event.
- Entries are open to full or restricted members of Barkway Park Club.
- Most competitions playing partners are selected on the day, so players are likely to play with different people. This contributes to getting to know a wide range of the members very quickly
