Find clubs, classes & sports for children in Greater Manchester
Are you are looking for a new children’s class, sports club or kids’ social group in Manchester? Then congratulations you’ve come to the right place! We have lots of suggestions and local contact details for you.
Is your child sporty or do you just want to cut down their screen time and get them physically active? How about a team sport? We have details of Manchester-based football clubs, netball, tennis and hockey teams for kids. Or maybe they’d prefer individual activities such as multisports & gymnastics, horseriding, golf or swimming and watersports.
Are you looking for an activity to improve your child’s confidence and social skills? Try performing arts such as dance, drama and music. Or if that’s really not their thing, joining a martial arts club or one of Manchester’s cadets, scouts and guides organisations could really help develop self-esteem. And if your child has additional needs you might find something enjoyable on our page devoted to activities for children with disabilities and special needs.
Is your child “bored”? Spark a new interest such as art & crafts, cooking or lego – find inspiration on our crafts, hobbies and special interests page .
Would you like to develop your child’s academic skills? You’ll find help on our list of private tutors in Manchester or language classes for children.
Wondering if your child is too young for classes? You’d be amazed – some classes start at just a few months old and have waiting lists so take a look now at the range of classes available for babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers.
