Table Tennis Club

The club runs two teams in The Bury & District Table Tennis League, which is affiliated to the English Table Tennis Association and thus operates under the rules of the ETTA.

The annual table tennis season is from the beginning of September through to the end of April. Match nights are Monday for the 'A' team and Wednesday for the 'B' team and take place in the JCR.

New players are always welcome and practice sessions can be arranged for newcomers. For more information on how to join, please contact the Development Office by email or call 0161 764 1733.



The Bridge Club

Accommodating players of all standards, the Bridge Club has been running for over 20 years.

The Club welcomes anyone who enjoys the game to come along and join in on the first Wednesday of every month from September to May (during term time). If the first Wednesday falls during the school holidays the club meets on the second Wednesday.

You do not have to be a good player as the atmosphere is far removed from being ‘cut-throat'. Starting at 7:30pm, there are 4 half-hour sessions with a break for coffee and biscuits in the middle.

The venue is the Junior Common Room (JCR). Entry fee is £2.00
