Family Fun Day At Manchester Y Club

Family Fun Day At Manchester Y Club

CASTLEFIELD'S Y Club celebrates its 21st birthday this month with a day of free activities for families on Saturday 24 September, topped off with a BBQ and live music in the evening.

20Th Birthday Party 021This gym and sports club is better known to some as the Manchester YMCA. It's got some of the best facilities in the city centre with a full length swimming pool, a sports hall, fully equipped gym, dance studios, and a packed schedule of exercise classes (about 70 per week).

It's a popular choice for adults looking for gym membership in the city centre and its young people's programme is equally well established. As it's part of the YMCA network, the club has a long history of helping young people to get healthy and fulfil their potential through sports activities. The emphasis is on promoting well-being, developing young people's confidence and skills, and having fun.

20Th Birthday Party 021At the Family Fun Day, young people can take part in a range of activities, starting with the Junior Y Session in the sports hall – a two-hour runabout with five-a-side football, soft play, ball pool, badminton and table tennis.

Next it's over to the pool for a fun swim with inflatables, then in the afternoon there's all sorts of good stuff happening, from mini-manicures, face painting and bouncy castles to a cheerleading class. Adults can do a zumba class for free if they like. There'll be a BBQ on the terrace of the adjoining Castlefield Hotel with a small charge for food.

Come evening, they'll have a live band, a mini auction, plus food and drink. If you want to ditch the kids at this point, you can head to the disco in the hotel bar, which runs until 1am.

Dscf0360The Junior Y runs drop-in sessions on Saturdays and after school on Tuesdays and Wednesdays – children don't have to be a member to take part. If you're looking for cheap sports activities for children (it's only £3.50 a session) or a sports club all the family can be part of, the Y Club could be for you.

Give it a try at the free Family Fun Day on Saturday 24 September. Just turn up on the day. Or for more information call 0161 837 3535 or email info@yclub.org.uk. The Y Club is located on Liverpool Road, Castlefield, Manchester, M3 4JR.
