Welcome to Withnell Fold Sports and Social Club

Covid latest

From July 19th the Government have greatly reduced the legal restrictions on all activities.  However,  we are still taking a careful approach, given the incidence of the Delta variant in this area.  

So, when the bar is open, limited indoor seating will be available, and orders will be taken at the bar.  There will be an extended bar - to keep bar staff more distanced - and members are asked to maintain a 2m gap when queuing.  Access to the toilets will remain restricted to one person at a time and changing rooms will be limited to a maximum of 6 people at any one time.  

As time progresses will be gradually returning to a more normal state of affairs, providing that this is a sensible option.

Pilates and Yoga will continue to be on in the clubhouse each week : art night will return and our monthly quizzes will be back.   There is also an Indian supper evening scheduled for Friday 6th August.



The ending of lockdown in March did provide us with a bit of a publicity boost....

Well what a week that was! Ending lockdown on 29th March, playing midnight tennis with DIY lighting proved a great hit with Granada Reports , Lancashire Evening Post, BBC Radio 5live, LTA, Chorley Guardian and too many news sites to mention. We've even reached Australia! If you missed/didn't catch any of that just click on one of the links.

In normal times, this is what we'd like to have first up on our home page... 

Withnell Fold Sports and Social Club is located in Withnell Fold, mid way between Chorley and Blackburn.

The sports played at the club are tennis and cricket with teams playing in local leagues and competitions.

The clubhouse is used for social activities including a monthly quiz night and there are weekly fitness, pilates and yoga classes. See the 'News' section for more details. The clubhouse is available for hire by any adult member. Click here to download details.

The club is also used several times per week by West Pennine U3A and provides facilities to support WF Primary School P.E. provision. 

We are always keen to increase the number of things that we offer - so if you have an idea or want to organise an activity, please get in touch. 

Membership is open to anyone who pays the appropriate membership fee.

Come and join us!!!


We are grateful to a number of partners who support the club. Click here to see details
