We’re just over a month away until the Heatons Summer Festival! As we gear up to bring you the best local bands, some delicious grub and a whole bunch of family activities, we’ve naturally been spending a lot of time noseying around this year’s Summer Festival venue: The Heatons Sports Club.

And, what a venue it is! The Heatons Sports Club has superb year-round facilities for cricket, tennis, lacrosse and rugby, at both junior and senior level. Always fancied taking up a sport? Well, the Sports Club always welcomes new members of all abilities. But, which sport will you choose?

Cricket?
Perhaps something with a little less contact is more your cup of tea? If so, check out Heaton Mersey Cricket Club with teams playing in the UKfast Cheshire League and the Cheshire County Cricket League. They have a well-established Junior section starting at U7’s running right through to U15’s. Check them out here here or on twitter @hmcricket, @hmcricketjunior

Partying?
Ok, so not technically a sport…but Heatons Sports Club is also a brilliant space to host a function whether it’s a wedding reception, christening party, birthday party, meeting, conference or training event. Non-members are always welcome, with food served Friday to Sunday inclusive.

There will be a chance to check out all the clubs and the facilities at this year’s Heatons Summer Festival!
