The club operates a "host" system on Thursday evenings so that members or visitors may come along and a partner will be available.
We are always in need of volunteers to act as 'host' on Thursday evenings and we would be grateful if club members willing to be a host would contact Sue Temperley
on 0161 972 0004.
We play on all weekday nights at 7.25pm
We are located in Sale, Cheshire, close to the M60 Junction 6 and also within 200 metres of the Sale Metro
