About the Club

The South West Manchester Cricket Club is the hidden gem of Chorlton's burgeoning real ale scene. From the tram station, take a left and pass Oddest. A few yards on is Ellsemere Road at nestled at the end of it is SWMCC, part of the local community since 1882!

As well as cricket, bowling, snooker & darts teams playing in local leagues, the club has an active group of social members who enjoy it's large comfortable bar. Real ale is becoming an increasingly important feature of the club bar. The regular house beer is Hydes Original, now joined by at least one permanent guest ale - when there are major events on bringing more custom in there are two. The club is keen on supporting local breweries (as well as Hydes), having featured guest beers from Hornbeam, Boggart, Dunham Massey, Allgates & Beartown amongst many others.

Wide screen TV shows football cricket and many other live sports.

Visitors are welcome to come in and visit the bar to see if they like it - if you do and want to come back, social membership is just £15 a year.

The upstairs air-conditioned function room was extensively refurbished in 2010. With it's own bar & dancefloor it has a capacity of 90 people and is available for parties, anniversaries, christenings and club & group meetings.

Chorlton Folk Club meet at the club every Thursday night. The club is a proper folk club – no amplification, an ethos that encourages anyone brave enough to get up on stage. Not just folk, there’s some traditional, some unaccompanied, but lots of acoustic blues and rock, and, increasingly, singer-songwriters.

Most nights are singers’ nights (£1) with occasional guest nights (£2).

Tuesdays is the turn of the Glee Club - an adult group for over 21s who secretly want to sing like nobody's listening!
