CHELTENHAM'S BEST KEPT SECRET - EST. 1874

Activities

Below are some of the many activities normally available to members 

Snooker

The Club has a Snooker Room with a full size table, recently refurbished, where members can enjoy a quiet, or not so quiet, frame or two, at any time that the Club is open. Members may book the table ahead of time and, indeed, make a regular weekly booking. We ask for a £2 per frame contribution which helps the upkeep and maintenance of the table and equipment. 

Bridge 

Our bridge group meets every Tuesday afternoon from 4:00 to 6:00pm.  We range from beginners, some with little or no experience, anxious to learn and improve, to more experienced players, who help tutor the beginners. If you fancy challenging your brain whilst enjoying a relaxing and social couple of hours, why not join us. 

Ramblers

A ramble is arranged most months of the year. They are usually about 4 miles in length over not too taxing terrain and within 10 miles of Cheltenham. When Government regulations allow we end with a lunch at a carefully selected pub. In the summer months it's often an afternoon event followed by an early supper at a pub or back at the New Club. 

New Club Choir

You don't need a voice like Andre Bocelli or Sarah Brightman to be a member of the choir. Singing improves your mood. It releases the same feel-good brain chemicals as sex and chocolate! It is very effective as a stress reliever and improves sleep. What is there not to like! 

Keep Fit

Pilates 

Pilates: Suitable for all ages and abilities, led by Lucy Whitehead, highly qualified in Specialist Pilates.  Two classes are held each week, on Tuesdays with Samantha Lewis and on Thursdays with Lucy Whitehead. 

and

Yoga

is held on Wednesday mornings, with Jeni Howland. 

The success of these classes is due to the tremendous feeling of wellbeing and friendship that they provide to all involved.

Book Club

The New Club Book Group, was started 12 years ago and now meets on the first Monday of the month (except May) in the morning in the well-appointed club library. Open to 12 members, each is invited to choose a book for everyone to read before leading a discussion about it's contents and merits. 

Golf 

The highlight of the New Club's golfing year is the tournament for the Congreve Cup and Tait Salver. Played in the Spring at one of the many golf courses in and around Cheltenham, the day ends with the prize giving and a sumptuous supper prepared by the New Club's chef and his team.  It falls to the winners to take responsibility for organising the following year's event. 

Outings

Regular outings are arranged to many notable National Trust properties as well as visits to other interesting places including Buckingham Palace, river cruises, specialised museums and even shopping at Bicester Village.

Afternoon Teas

Supper Talks

Ladies only lunches
