Mancunians have secured an agreement with Greater Manchester Police to use the Hough End Centre as their community facility for the next few years.
The Hough End Centre is the Sports and Social Club for Greater Manchester Police and is situated on the same site as Mancunians’ previous home, Broughton Park Rugby Club in Chorlton, but the move means that Mancunians will have their own dedicated Rugby pitch and use of indoor facilities for Handball and training use.
The move means that Mancunians can increase their sporting activity to offer more sessions including Saturday morning Handball & Rugby coaching, Monday Night Touch Rugby as well as their existing Rugby and Handball sessions, all on one site.
“This is a very exciting time for Mancunians.” Said, Director, Stefan Hopewell. “Having use of the Hough End Centre means that the activity we carry out in Manchester will now have a focal point and the local chidren will be able to come to our new home to take part in the fantastic sports that we offer.”
“The Hough End Centre is in a fantastic location and is situated close to Metrolink so is easily accessible by all of the Manchester Community. We’re excited to be working with Greater Manchester Police and we’re very confident that the relationship with be a long a fruitful one.” He said.
The Hough End Centre is situated on Mauldeth Road West, Chorlton, Manchester and the facilities are unrivalled. The campus features two full size sports pitches accommodating football and rugby, a full sized sports hall, two squash courts, a cardio suite, weights gym, six dressing rooms and conference and banqueting facilities for up to 250 people.
“Having use of the Hough End Centre is the latest piece in the complex Mancunians jigsaw. We already have a fantastic group of volunteers with over 20 people giving up their time to help the club each week, so being able to call The Hough End Centre ‘home’ will allow us to secure much needed revenue. This will allow Mancunians to continue to be a sustainable sports club which isn’t reliant on benevolent hand-outs and will allow the club to continue to grow.”
