INTRODUCTION TO OUR CLUB
The full title of our club is Hanworth Villa Sports & Social Club and we are exactly that, in equal parts.
Whilst the club is fully committed to our mission of “providing facilities for all local people, regardless of gender and age, to be able to play football at whatever level they find themselves at” we are also equally committed to ensuring that our club remains as a social focal point for the local community.
The advances that our football section have made are easy to see. Improvements to our ground over recent years mean that we now have the facilities to be able to field a team at Step 5 of the National League System (FA Pyramid level 9) as well as meeting the more basic requirements of our sides that play at a lower level. The addition of a Ladies team to our stable is another measure of our continuing growth.
Not so obvious to see is the increasing role that our social club has in the local area. For a number of reasons, recent years have seen a sharp decline in the number of pubs, social clubs and meeting places available for people locally. At “The Ranch” we are doing our best to buck this trend and we make our bar, and other facilities, available to all. The success of this approach now means that our club house is open 7 days a week, and we now employ a full time Club Steward.
