Seven years ago, the club was at a crossroads, they were struggling to keep the club
running. Sacrificing the quality of the sports coaching and equipment wasn’t an option
they were prepared to consider. Neither was increasing the prices of memberships because they knew it would impact their underprivileged members.
They decided to raise the money themselves by starting up their own festival. A festival
which grew quickly and has become a highly in demand event for thousands of local
families. Flixton Cricket and Sports Club are passionate about keeping sports financially
accessible to the local community. Not only do they have cricket on offer, but they also have
tennis, bowls, karate, table tennis and more.
With lots of their attendees going on to win top awards in the sports world. They also have a well used and well-loved function room that hosts a variety of community-based clubs and activities. As well as being a great venue for celebrations.
