A steadily increasing number of players are joining our group and play badminton or tennis on weekday evening(s) after work - mixed doubles or singles matches of a beginner / intermediate standard. Venues will normally be a local School Hall or Leisure Centre for badminton and either the free tennis courts in Bramcote, or at Nottingham Tennis Centre on University Boulevard (cost per player only about 3 pounds per hour). Basic equipment can be provided, and we are a very welcoming club so a lack of ability is not necessarily a problem!

Golf is one of the fastest growing sports in Europe, with great value equipment now widely available in both mainstream sports shops and specialist outlets. Almost all of the established - Golf Courses in Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire and Leicestershire - open to non-members.
Even beginners and 'pay as you go' amateur golfers are now able to gain access to some of the oldest and most historic clubs in the country without feeling out of place or unwelcome. Websites such as - VoucherMania - include vouchers for golf gear and highlight the discounted rates that are available for green fees at many of the golf courses in the area.
Readers of this page meet regularly (at least once per week) throughout the year to play golf. We're not very good at playing golf (my most recent scores were 102, 92, 110 and 117!) but we always have a great laugh and enjoy a good walk and some fresh air! Sometimes we play nine holes on a course suitable for beginners, or we go somewhere a little more challenging - but we've helped complete novices around those golf courses too! Please see also - Local Golf Courses - page for details of some of our favourite clubs.
New! Check Out Our Nottingham Golf Facebook Group Here! - Post your availability for playing golf, find new people to play golf with, meet new friends or share tips and money saving ideas.
A number of players (mostly beginners but some of intermediate / club standard) regularly meet at Cotgrave Golf Club, Chilwell Manor Golf Course, Bramcote Hills Golf Course, the Rutland Sports Centre in Chilwell (Pewit Golf Course - 9 Holes No Dress Code), or at Trent Lock Golf Course in Sawley / Long Eaton (the 9 hole course there has no dress code and is a very friendly place to enjoy a couple of hours playing golf). This weekend will be no different, and if you are able to take a couple of hours off work in the afternoon we'll be playing golf on weekdays throughout the year (even in winter) too.

Girls Can Play Golf! - Not convinced? Rumour has it that one of our female golfers played nine holes with two men earlier in 2010 and beat them both! And she played off the men's tees so it was a win, fair and square!
This website is responsible for the creation of a football team, starting out as a five-a-side team then progressing to 11-a-side Sunday League Football in 2008. This is one of Nottingham's best football teams to join if you are an amateur, because we have regular social events and train once or twice per week, with weekend matches throughout the year.
Jules is running a girls' football team with players from the Beeston, Carlton and Chilwell areas of Nottingham (players from any part of the city or its surrounding areas are welcome). Please

Why Not Enter the Trent 5 Mile Race? - Wednesday 30th May 2012 (7.15pm)
Enter by Friday 25th May, for only £6 per person, prizes available - but most of the 100+ runners just enter for the challenge and the participation. Most of the course runs alongside the River Trent or the Canal path - a scenic route and a fully marshalled event, each mile has a marker and there is a Drinks Station.
The running club meets at Chilwell Olympia every Wednesday and Friday evening at about 6.30pm for a 'fun run' (pace varies, the slowest runner is never left behind) of between 4 and 8 miles in length, also on Sunday mornings for a slightly longer distance run in Stanton and Stapleford.
