About Us

Nestled in the heart of the Battle of Britain Village of Manston in Thanet, Kent the Manston Sports & Social Club is a hidden gem.

The hall is available to hire for any occasions including, weddings, birthday parties, christenings, baby showers, etc. see your events page for more details.

The club has a maximum capacity of 250 and has full disabled access and facilities.


Manston Sports & Social Club was originally founded as the sports and leisure club for the employees of Hoverspeed Limited, which operated a Hovercraft service across the channel from Ramsgate. When the company ceased trading, they sold the club to the members, and the club has operated as a members club ever since, serving people from Thanet and the wider East Kent Area.

It is run by a committee of elected local volunteers.



The outdoor space has a full size football pitch with goals and a lit petanque pitch.


Full size snooker table, pool table and darts. We also have selected sporting events televised.

Parking and Transport

We have a free car park for approximately 50 cars at the rear of the club and many local taxis operate in the area. However, for evening or weekend events, please do not rely on public transport.
