Flixton is a new club
New members very welcome
Urmston Sports and Social club was originally founded in 1846 as Urmston & Flixton Cricket Club, is situated in the leafy suburbs of Urmston, west of Greater Manchester. From 1846, for many years, the Club played cricket on a number of different fields locally until the 1870’s when it moved to its present location.
Tennis was first played at the club around 1904.
Membership steadily increased until in the 1920’s when the Club formed a trust and was able to purchase the cricket field and the adjoining fields for tennis. A new pavilion was built in 1925 and from then until the 1960’s things remained unaltered.
In the mid-sixties land was sold to finance the construction of a new pavilion and further land sales financed an extension to this pavilion.
The hockey section was formed in the 1980’s and has developed into a very strong force within the club.
The bowls section is the newest section within the club and is growing into a thriving organisation.
We also have a social membership who do a great job in supporting the Club.
