About Us


The club was originally founded in 1957, at that time as a cricket club. Over the years it has grown both in stature and popularity to what it is today:-

HINCKLEY’S PREMIER SPORTING, SOCIAL & ENTERTAINMENT VENUE.

The club has become well known as a venue to host private parties and is one of the County’s best known wedding and party venues. It boasts a large air conditioned function room which can cater for up to 250 people and a smaller function room to suit up to 50 people, which has  multimedia facilities to enable corporate usage including seminars, meetings and training sessions etc.

To compliment private functions, the club has an Events Manager who will discuss your needs with you and arrange for them all to be catered for. From all kinds of entertainment to a full catering, including silver service.

The club has a vibrant social membership, where hundreds of members benefit from live entertainment every week.

On the sporting front, we have a very strong cricket section with both junior and senior teams playing at good competitive levels within the County. We also have a Saturday football team playing in the District League.

NEW Walking Football

Walking football is a variant of football that is aimed at keeping people aged over 50 involved with football if, due to a lack of mobility or for other reason, they are not able to play the traditional game. The sport can be played both indoors and outdoors.
