Sports & Games

Come and play golf with the 50/9ers.

This new group is for golfers who are fifty and over and want to play 9 holes on some of the finest courses in the county, at very reasonable rates!

With regular competitions and social events, this Society takes over where the regular golfer leaves off.

Our group now consists of around twenty golfers and we are meeting regularly on Wednesdays to play nine holes on the main course at either Chesfield, Mt Pleasant or Letchworth Golf Clubs.

Now able to welcome new members, any standard are welcome.

Meetings are held on alternate Tuesdays at 2.30pm at 3, Longmeadow Drive, Ickleford.

Would any new members wishing to join please check with the Group Contact to confirm these arrangements.

All welcome.

We meet at the Letchworth Tennis Club on Mondays from 8.00pm to 10.00pm, excluding Bank Holidays.

Please note it is an Intermediate, not a beginners group.

This group is currently full, but new groups are being formed as existing ones fill up, so please contact William Armitage 07890 709462 about the possibility of setting up a new Badminton group.


The club continues to play on both Tuesday and Friday afternoons, from 1.00 pm to 4.30 pm at The Friends' Meeting House, Howgills, 42 South View, Letchworth Garden City.

The cost is £2 per session.

Participants will always get time to play even when there are incomplete tables.

New members and improvers are always welcome. There are always people there who can advise on what bid to make when unsure how to proceed.

The group plays for enjoyment and any standard is welcome.

We are a group who enjoy social cycling and we generally ride on the third Thursday of every month. We cycle in North Hertfordshire, Central Bedfordshire and occasionally into Cambridgeshire.  The distance covered on our rides is up to 25 miles.  Our group is of mixed experience and ability, so all adults are welcome. We aim these rides at beginners and those that haven't cycled for a while and will ride at the speed of the slowest rider.

Gentle exercise and Yoga help improve well-being and quality of life. This programme provides a perfect complement to support your other activities by helping you gently work on flexibility and balance, including all the joints and muscle groups of the body. Suitable for all levels and most health conditions. 

We meet from 8.00pm at Cultivo Lounge usually on Tuesday evenings.

For more information of exact times and whether you need to bring a board, please contact the Group contact.

Weather permitting, rides of between 30 and 50 miles will continue.

For futher information contact:

We meet once or twice a week at members homes where we play the game for pleasure.

The game and the way we play it lends itself to both the beginner and the more advanced player.

We meet in the Broadway Gallery Cafe on alternate Wednesdays at 2.30pm to play Scrabble.

Any new people wishing to join should check with me to confirm the arrangements.
