  • Circle Dancing


    If you like dancing and a wide range of music from all over the world then circle dancing is for you. The dances can be lively or gentle, meditative or exciting. The moods and styles vary enormously and there is something for everyone in the repertoire. You don't need a partner or experience. Dance bare-foot or in soft-soled shoes. Cost :   £4 (or £18 for 6 sessions).    Venue :    Christchurch URC Hall, Littlecourt Rd.

  • Cycling


    This group meets twice a month on the 1st Wednesday and 3rd Tuesday. It is open to members of any U3A.  We are covered by the U3A insurance for third party liability.
    We usually meet at about 11am, cycle between 20 and 30 miles at an average speed of 8 to 10 mph and we always stop for a pub lunch. We try to stick to minor country roads and cycle tracks. We are often in the Sevenoaks and surrounding area but from time to time we are more ambitious and drive or take the train further afield. We have also had trips to France! Each member of the group is expected to take their turn planning and leading rides. There are very few rules and we like to keep our cycling relaxed and informal.
    We have a loose link with the “Rusty Riders” group in Knole U3A, if shorter and more relaxing rides are required.

  • Golf


    This group, shared with Knowle U3A, has been running for 2 years.  We play on a variety of courses in Kent each month, which appeals to members and enables us to attract good group discounts.  We are a mix of regular golfers and beginners, both men and women.  Everyone interested in playing a friendly game is welcome.  Our season runs all year with winter morning and summer afternoon tee times.
