Anyone for tennis?

If you enjoy getting fit, you can take part in the numerous fitness classes we have available. However, if you're more inclined to add some competition to the mix, then we have a number of Manchester sports events for you to try your hand at (literally). Racquet sports are popular among our members, with badminton and squash both regular Didsbury events on the calendar. Tennis is also popular in the summer. It isn't always easy to drag a friend along to a sporting activity but don't worry...we match you up.


How about being part of a team?

We also offer five-a-side football for the guys, so if you like playing football and want to fuel that competitive spirit, come along. We play on Thursdays and Sundays. It isn't serious, as always, it's all about being social and meeting people, so don't worry if you aren't Pele. We're open to more ideas for team-based sports events, such as basketball or netball. Just let us know and we'll try our best to accommodate you.


And now for something completely different

Also in the summer, we have our popular annual sports day event, which includes rounders and even an egg-and-spoon race. :) It's one of the most fun days of the Social Circle Events Calendar when we meet up at Fletcher Moss Park, enjoy some snacks and drinks and just generally be stupid while playing sports. We like to take advantage of those summer days and this one has always been received well.


So how does it work?

We know it’s a little unusual to turn up at an event knowing no one, so we don’t expect you to. Instead, we introduce you to the founders and then to the event host, who will make sure you’re feeling excited and not too nervous.

Whether it’s that you're looking for more things to do in Manchester or it's a lifelong ambition you're dying to fulfil, our Manchester activities have got you covered!

Squash With Social Circle

I'd been to yoga classes every week for years but it had been a while since I played sports. It was quite a change of pace to play squash and while I got beaten badly in the first couple of goes, I soon started to find the pace. And now I've made some really good friends who started out as squash partners through Social Circle.

Football With Social Circle

I used to play 5-a-side regularly with the lads but it went from weekly to fortnightly to whenever everyone had the time. So it was ideal for me when I saw it was available with Social Circle. I love the drinks nights and meals but it's great to get out there and have a kick around as well. That's what I love about Social Circle: there's something of everything.

Social Circle Sports Day

“I attended the last Social Circle sports day and wow, what fun it was. It was a great mixture of sports, some I would have expected, like rounders, and others not so much, but definitely fun! We had a great time just messing around with snacks and drinks and it was one of the funnest Social Circle events I've been too.”


Types Of Event

Racquet Sports

Racquet Sports
Badminton and squash are mainstays on the calendar and we also feature tennis in the Summer. Racquet sports are great for getting fit and also for forming one-on-one friendships, even after the fieriest of matches.


Football is a great way for the guys to enjoy some competition among new friends. An alternative to going to the gym, we play either 11 a side or split into teams of 5 and 6. We only play for fun so you don't need to be Pele to come along.

Sports Day

Sports Day
Our annual sports day event is a summer occasion, with competitions ranging from egg and spoon to rounders, and with lots of fun in between. Taking place at a local park during the Summer, we take advantage of the weather by enjoying a picnic and drinks in-between games.
