Other club activities

West Heaton offers many other activities in addition to the main sports of Bowling, Tennis and Squash. We have an active gardening section, table tennis, bridge and even opportunities for golf.

As well as those listed here there may be one-off activities, please check facebook and club notice boards for details.

 
Kitchen Garden

Beyond the bowling green you will see the peaceful garden area that hosts our very own Kitchen Garden. The garden grows a vast array of fruits and vegetables throughout the year, and is entirely maintained by a small group of volunteer members. The produce grown is available for club use e.g. tennis suppers and barbecues, and gardening group members share the produce in lieu of their work.

 

If you are interested in getting involved there is a Kitchen Garden WhatsApp group you can join by contacting Pete Goulding.

 
Table Tennis

Table tennis takes place in the pavilion on Tuesday evenings between 7.00pm and 10.00pm and on Sunday afternoons between 1.00pm and 5.30pm. We use a booking system via our WhatsApp group so that we know when to set up, when someone will be there to play with and to have confirmation that players do not have Covid symptoms. You can ask to be added by contacting Mike or Tony.

Club members only.  No fee.  All standards welcome.

For Tuesday evenings contact Mike Gibson  07718 277925

For Sunday afternoons contact Tony Edwards  07887 794480

The Sunday afternoon sessions are now suspended until the autumn. In the meantime, the outdoor table is available on the back lawn for members to play without the need to book, but children under the age of 15 must be supervised by an adult.
