Risk Assessment Statement

Following our relocation to the Sports Village at Honeywell, and in light of the need for additional increased safety procedures as a consequence of the Coronavirus pandemic, we have prepared our own independent Risk Assessment Statement which can be found under the Information section on the menu page.

Sports Village have their own Risk Assessment Statement for the venue in general and this is displayed prominently in the main reception area of the building and also in various other locations within the building.



In line with the latest Goverment guidelines please be advised that

the wearing of FACE MASKS is now OPTIONAL at face to face sessions.

Road Works 13th July to 22nd July 2022

Barnsley MBC have advised that the approach road to Honeywell Campus

will be closed on the above dates for resurfacing between 7.30am and 3.00pm

This will restrict access from the top end - Cockerham Lane / Cavendish Road

so we may have to approach from the bottom end under the railway bridge 

via the Honeywell Street entrance off Old Mill Lane whilst these works are ongoing.

Can I suggest we all allow ourselves an extra 5 or 10 minutes travelling time during this period

Monday Bridge

"Relaxed" Bridge sessions take place on Monday afternoons.
No partner is required, however you may not be able to play, unless you can be accommodated on a half table.

Please be aware that these are not teaching sessions.
Please arrive by 12.50pm for a prompt 1pm start.


If you are looking for a playing partner on

a Monday Afternoon or a Wednesday Evening

and you are not sure who might be available to play

then please feel free to contact me

and I will endeavour to find a partner on your behalf.
