, the UK's largest Sports & Hobbies Website

We couldn't find a website that showed us the clubs and groups we were interested in visiting when looking for a new hobby... so we built one!

Watch this short video to find out what it's all about!


  2. Part of Arden Squadron’s First Class Training is a weekend of navigation training followed by an assessment for the Bronze Award, National Navigation Award Scheme.  This earns successful cadets the Award certificate and a badge, and as well as counting towards their First Class training is also part of their Duke of Edinburgh preparation and training.  The weekend also includes campcraft and is much enjoyed by the cadets who participate.  The cadets who passed their assessment received their certificates this month from the Wing Commander.

    Flt Lt Seymour said after the course “The cadets did well, particularly given the wet weather during the weekend.  This is something extra that 2286 likes to give our cadets and demonstrates our commitment to providing added value to cadet service”  The Squadron would also like to thank Sgt Ellen Seymour for her hard work and commitment to this Scheme, including being an Assessor.

  7. Usually its cadets who do the work to raise funds for the Squadron but recently Arden staff and members of the Civillian Committee worked together to raise funds, by marshaling in the Coventry Fun Run.  Early on the Sunday morning, everyone gathered at their assigned junction, put on their high-vis and pulled the barriers and the cones to close off the roads.  Watching the competitors come past, particularly those in costume, raised the spirits of the marshallers, and everyone agreed it had been a good way to work together both for the community and the Squadron.  Thanks to everyone who participated, both from the Squadron Commanding Officer and the Chairman.  




    As part of Arden Squadron’s focus on the Air Commodore’s core activities, the Squadron recently enjoyed an evening run by the RAF Outreach Team. This evening involved the cadets being divided into groups based on RAF roles, for example Logistics, and then completing a number of scenarios based on the roles.  Flt Lt Seymour said, after talking to the cadets about the visit “This was an amazing opportunity for cadets to learn what kind of roles are available in the RAF, and what those roles entail.  It was great to watch how engaged the cadets got in the activity and we would like to thank the Outreach team for their time and effort”.

  13. Bexhill Giants Basketball Club is one of three shortlisted Clubs from hundreds of nominations for Team of the Year awards at the 2015 Active Sussex Sports Awards at the Grand Hotel Brighton (Tonight) Friday 27th November.

     The only Bexhill sports club to make the shortlist this year , the Giants have seen their reputation and profile raised on the global stage following the successful World Club Basketball Tournament they organised and hosted in Hastings this September . The tournament saw the Giants join seven teams USAF Lakenheath Eagles (USA), Great Britain Police, KAMPI (Philippines), Urban Elite Team ‘UET’ (England), Lake Michigan Admirals (USA), USA Select 1 & USA Select 2 , in two days of competition in front of excited spectators. The weekend also included a free youth coaching clinic run by USA Select coaches.

     The culmination of an excellent weekend of basketball, music and charity fundraising on behalf of Kidney Research UK , saw host team the Bexhill Giants defeat the Great Britain Police Team in the B Final.

     Over the past couple of years the Giants, have stepped away from competing in the Sussex Basketball League to focus on organising international basketball events locally with the aim of raising the profile of the UK game and provide experiences for local players too compete in international events they wouldn’t normally get the opportunity to.

     Since 2013, the Giants who hosted six international events have seen their reputation grow internationally with a number of well renowned sports organisations including the American Athletic Union , USA Network Sports and Germany's Howard's Hoops looking to bring teams to Sussex to compete in the Giants Events.

    Giants Founder and Owner Eric Douglin, said " We as a Club we really pleased to receive the nomination in the first place but to be shortlisted at such a prestigious event is an excellent achievement. I dis have reservations about withdrawing the Giants from the league but felt it was better to concentrate on providing players and youngsters with unforgettable experiences outside of competing in local league events, this nomination proves we are doing something right"

     The Giants already have two events planned for 2016 , the International Challenge Tournament in February and the second World Club Basketball Tournament in September.

     Details of the awards can be found on the Active Sussex website www.

    Part of Arden Squadron’s Aerospace Officer, CI Rob Hunt’s job is looking for ways to meet one of the ATC’s aims, that of promoting a practical interest in aviation.  As part of that, one of the visits Rob arranged this year was a tour of Marshall Aerospace in Cambridge.  This was combined with a visit to Cambridge’s small but innovative Science Centre.  Flt Lt Seymour said, after talking to the cadets about the trip “We would like to thank Marshalls for their kind hospitality, both the tour and lunch, it was both informative and interesting and clearly caught the cadets interest.  I would like to thank Rob for his hard work in setting this up, and also the staff who accompanied the cadets.”  Unfortunately we cant give away details of the tour, so anyone who wants to know what Marshall does, will need to arrange their own tour.  However the museum had a number of interactive displays, which the cadets enjoyed and competed on, and this is also well worth a visit.

  18. The Squadron recently received a thank you letter for our recent "Big Chinwag".  The cadets got to spend the night chatting to each other and in exchange they all gave a £1.  The money goes to help Age Concern stop elderly people being lonely.  Our thanks to all the cadets who participated.


    Look no further - we still have for sale the final 5 of the dozen and a half bowls clocks that we had made. All proceeds go towards Club funds.

    These are brand new quartz/battery clocks set in original, lignum vitae bowls, polished to bring out the grain of the wood so that each is effectively unique.

    The face of the clock is approximately 7cm or 2½ inches across. The bowl itself will vary according to the original size of bowl it’s made from.

    Our price for each bowl clock is £22.

    When they've gone ... they've gone as we will not be able to have any more made at this price.

    Similar clocks marketed by Drakes Pride are advertized online for £60 or more. For answers to any any questions or to buy a clock please contact John G directly or via this website.

  20. We are grateful to Mrs Birkett of Thornton Road, Goxhill who has donated to the Club two pairs of bowls. They originally belonged to her husband and her father-in-law, both of whom were once members of Goxhill Bowls Club.

    The bowls will be added to those already available to be borrowed by new bowlers without their own bowls (or, as occasionally happens, members who have forgotten their own bowls).
