See SNOOKER page for reports of recent performances by the teams and to see a short film made by member Rich Sweetman about snooker at the Albert.

Welcome to The Albert Bowling and Tennis Club, in the heart of West Didsbury. Surrounded by mature trees and overlooking a superb crown bowling green the club creates a direct link between the area’s Victorian past and its vibrant and fashionable present.


Our tennis members enjoy the use of six floodlit, all-weather tennis courts, social weekend tennis, the opportunity to play in a range of successful teams, regular tournaments and access to expert coaches. Players of every standard are catered for and there is a thriving junior section.


As a general member you can use the snooker room, the bowling green and the table tennis room and you pay a smaller membership fee. We have a new, young and enthusiastic bowling team and offer lessons to any interested newcomers. Throughout the summer we hold bowling events, both for serious players and family enjoyment. Our green is the envy of South Manchester and bowling is the new Rock ‘n’ Roll.


We also have darts and crib teams competing in local leagues and table tennis teams representing the entire age range.


As well as the sporting facilities, there’s a comfortable bar and lounge with excellent prices from which you can watch others expend energy on your behalf. We have plenty of live music and regular DJs plus cunning and witty quizzes, jukebox and dart board. We show key sporting events on the big screen and have a Plasma TV in the smaller lounge for members to catch up with results.


If you are not already a member and wish to join, our fees are very reasonable. Please access our Membership area for fees.
