, 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!

  1. on Sunday 28th Sep, 2014, all day.
    We are holding our annual Lifeboat Day Today. There will be many model Lifeboats on the water and also on static stands. The RNLI will have a stand and we hope other clubs will be there too. There will also be other model boats on display, so come along enjoy the show and help raise money for the RNLI Shoreham lifeboat. We hope to have some of the crew present as well. ( If not needed at station) to answer questions and talk to you as well. A GREAT FUN DAY< SO COME ALONG AND SUPPORT US.( Will all members and visiting clubs please remember this is not just lifeboat models, so bring along non lifeboat models too.)
  2. on Saturday 30th Aug, 2014, all day.
    Fabric Friday Club Morning...10.30/1.00

    Come along to this morning's Fabric Friday Club Morning - full of laughter and fun! A club, without the tie of a membership, or committing yourself to a 'term' length - as you would at a college or similar. You can bring your Fabric, hand sewing, machine sewing, any sewing, any fabric and away you go -the choice is yours. There is a wealth of experience, and if you are a complete beginner, do not be put off, quite the contrary. The ladies help each other all the time and the standard of their work is superb. Come along one Friday, and see what they are up to and you too can join in.

    Lovely and enjoyable mornings where you bring your fabric with you and sewing box and join in with all the fun!
  3. on Friday 29th Aug, 2014, all day.
    Knit and Knatter Club Morning...10.30/1.00
    Come along to this morning's Knit and Knatter Club Morning - full of laughter and fun! A club, without the tie of a membership, or committing yourself to a 'term' length - as you would at a college or similar.
    Lovely and enjoyable mornings where you bring your knitting or perhaps your crochet with you, enjoy sitting and chatting, whilst all the time, enjoying like minded ladies company and making something beautiful to wear perhaps.

    We have some really experienced 'knitters' with us on a Thursday morning and they are all so incredibly generous with their time and passing on their knowledge and skills to you! Lesley is very well known in and around East Grinstead for her talent with knitting, sewing, cross stitch and crochet, and she is only too delighted to help you with a dropped stitch or even showing you how to knit in an arm into your jumper (best not to ask I think!).
  4. on Thursday 28th Aug, 2014, all day.
    Craftily Creative Club Morning...10.30/1.00
    Come along to one of our fabulous Craftily Creative Club Morning's - full of laughter and fun! A club, without the tie of a membership, or committing yourself to a 'term' length - as you would at a college or similar. Lovely and enjoyable mornings where you bring your knitting or perhaps your crochet with you, enjoy sitting and chatting, whilst all the time, enjoying like minded ladies' company and making something beautiful to wear perhaps.

    Our Craftily Creative Club Mornings are very inspirational and lots of our ladies do different crafts - bringing their own projects with them
  5. Well done Maurice Broughton and Trevor Cooper for winning our 4 bowl pairs club competition this afternoon.

    It was a close-run contest as it was won by a margin of just 2 shots over the runners up Shirley Booth and John Rawlings. As Maurice and Trevor defeated Shirely and John when the two pairs clashed earlier the afternoon it was perhaps a fitting result.

    Thanks to all ten bowlers who took part.

  6. Congratulations to the team of Goxhill bowlers who won the trophy sponsored by Jossals of Market Rasen. See picture on this website.

    Goxhill Gremlins were: Tony Hebblewhite, John Whitwell, Tina Morris, John Rawlings, Chris Ellis and Bernard Wilson.

    There is nothing that can prepare you for an 0530 alarm call on a Monday morning. 
    Even the sun beating through the blinds couldn't get me moving as quickly as my brain wanted me to. The Weetabix was forced down before kit pulled on and the bike loaded with Garmin and bottles. 
    The cooler morning air was refreshing though and despite only living a couple of minutes ride from Yaxley Football Club it was enough to wake me up and engage my mind for the day ahead. 
    When I arrived about 0610, there were already plenty of people milling around and building up bikes from the boots of their cars. 
    The ride was capped at 40 for insurance and safety reasons but with so many riders about for the Tour we picked up a number on the way. 
    Once we got through the traffic of St Ives and onto the splendid car free cycle way to Cambridge, I finally started to relax a bit and get into the event. Andy Bell and I had been stressing about getting everyone to the Tour de France safely and despite a couple of punctures the group arrived at our base in Jesus College in time for all to have a good look around before picking their spot to watch the race. 
    Despite being in a crowd many people deep we were stood next to a lady from Sawtry and the Clarke family of Fenland Clarion fame. 
    The build up, the Caravan Publicitaire and the Tour itself were everything I remember from previous visits.
    It never fails to inspire me, and goodness knows how some of the kids around us felt if they were seeing it for the first time. 
    We met back at the bike store before starting back out. Once we reached the cycle way the pace shot up and we flew back to St Ives despite the stretch past the tv aerial and windmill being into a quite stiff headwind. 
    After St Ives the groups splintered. Probably a bit earlier than Andy and I had hoped. But the pace was up as there was a laden bar and full coffee pot waiting with the race on the big screen. 
    Once all were back and accounted for it was great to relax with a beer and watch the stage conclude. 
    It was a brilliant day and I can honestly say that 25 years ago when I followed my first Tour, I never dare dream that one day I would be riding out from my house to watch it. Its mind blowing and the impact of what we all did yesterday will take some time to sink in. 
    We didnt leave anyone and we looked after each other. That's pretty special and we should never be allowed to forget that's what this group of people are all about. 
    Thanks for coming and sharing it with us !

    This is the perfect bridge club with a relaxed and friendly environment. We play duplicate, so this gives you a real opportunity to see how you are progressing (or not).

    I particularly like the fact that the evening session starts at 1815 - so you always get home at a reasonable hour.

    Derek does a brilliant job of organising us all - and keeping his cool - thank you Derek.

    Hope to see you there soon

  23. we are currently looking for new memebrs to join our troupe for more details feel free to contact either through email or phone.

At, our aim was simple! To provide a service allowing people to find and get involved with clubs in their local area and to allow the clubs access to a platform to promote their activity as part of a community.

Over 50,000 clubs and groups on we're still growing and are continually working to improve the service we provide to both the public using the activity finder and the sports & hobbies that make use of the free promotional tools. The details of clubs listed on the Sports and Hobbies search directory are added by the clubs themselves ensuring the details provided are as accurate as possible.

Adding a free listing to the Sport and Hobby directory is straight forward and can be live and displaying to the public in just a few minutes. All listings have access to a private admin panel to manage the public profile and this allows quick and easy access to the features available to promote the activity. Post recent news, upcoming events or showcase the club visually with photos and videos. All of the features available on are free to use so if you are involved in a club, theres really is no reason not to give it a try! After all, the club down the road are likely benefitting from membership enquiries already from So don't miss out!
