Manston Sports & Social Club was originally founded as the sports and leisure club for the employees of Hoverspeed Limited, which operated a Hovercraft service across the channel from Ramsgate. When the company ceased trading they sold the club to the members, and the club has operated as a private members club ever since, serving people from Thanet and the wider East Kent Area.
For a small annual subscription, anyone is able to apply to join the club and enjoy all the facilities we have to offer.
The Club is situated in the heart of the village of Manston. It is set on a large site, tucked away just off the High Street.
The Clubhouse has a spacious hall with a stage and sound system and an excellent dance floor. There is a licensed bar with a comfortable seating area, pool table and dartboard and a separate snooker room. The large, well appointed, kitchen, which has a 5* Rating, is suitable for catering any event.
The Hall is available to hire for any occasions including, Weddings, Birthday parties, Christenings, Baby Showers, etc. Please use the contact page to enquire about prices as prices may vary dependant on event.
The Club has a maximum capacity of 250 and has full disabled access and facilities.
The outdoor space has a full size football pitch, Petanque pitch, patio area for outside seating and a free car park for approximately 50 cars.
Several clubs meet regularly on the premises for various activities and we also have many one-off events and private parties during the year. Check below and under Events for more details.
