Wadsley House Social Club
As Wadsley House Social Club prepares to celebrate its 100th anniversary, now is a great time to discover just how much it has to offer
When you join Wadsley House Social Club, you’re not just a member - you’re a shareholder. This means every individual owns a stake in this historic and vibrant building.
The club is nestled in its own attractive grounds just off Marlcliffe Road and is a non-profit-making limited company, run for the benefit of its members.
It was first set up as a private gentlemen’s club in 1919, before being sold to its members in more recent years. Nowadays, it has a more open approach, welcoming both male and female members over the age of 21 and families, as well as opening up to the general public for functions and special events.
The building’s leisure facilities include a lounge area with comfortable seating, a wide screen TV and access to the bar, which has an excellent variety of beers, lagers, wines, spirits and soft drinks at reasonable prices. The lounge also plays host to the weekly Tuesday Night Quiz.
There is a separate snooker room with two full-sized snooker tables and direct access to the bar. The games room has a TV, 3/4 sized snooker table, pool table and dart board that all the family can enjoy.
Outside, there’s a crown bowling green, pavilion and outdoor seating area to enjoy on warmer days, as well as a car park.
The snooker section runs many successful competitions throughout the year and has a snooker night on Wednesdays. Snooker night is a great way to catch up with friends whilst enjoying a drink and light refreshments.
The bowling section has a strong social life with members enjoying a drink and a chat in the club after a game. The clubs internal bowling competitions are held on Sundays and are attended by a wide range of age groups who enjoy the relaxed atmosphere, a drink and the occasional barbeque. These events have also been used to raise money for charity.
The club also runs an angling section. Meetings are held at the club on Mondays and the section’s venues include Lindholme Lakes, Woodhouse Grange and Hallcroft Fisheries.
The function room is located downstairs and can be hired for weddings, dinner dances, private parties, christenings and funeral receptions. Whether you are wanting to include a sit-down dinner or a more casual buffet for your guests, the venue can comfortably cater for between 50 and 60, with a capacity of up to 150 for standing guests.
All of their staff are friendly and experienced in events and are here to make your event a success. The club even has a resident DJ who is happy to play music for all age groups and tastes. The function room has a dance floor, a comfortable seating area, a conservatory opening onto the bowling green and benefits from full disabled access and facilities.
