Providing a unique and inclusive space for the community

We are a unique club in many ways, voluntary and yet good enough and big enough to win national awards. 

Our dedication to service has earned us the prestigious Queens Award for Voluntary Service as well as the title of best youth club in Hampshire in recent years. These awards are a testament to the hard work and commitment of our committee and volunteers, many of whom were original members in their youth. 

We are proud to give back to our community and provide a variety of activities within the Centre as well as running sports activities outside the Centre.
