The sports and social club has now been operational since 2001, the concept of Peter Lawrenson, who saw the need to provide somewhere on the school for social events to take place in order to cater for Old Marians as well as friends, parents of boys and those who live locally to the school.
The facility is now very well used with Friday nights being a very lively and busy night. Saturdays nights are generally available for people to hire for personal parties or events. During the week a local Bridge Club uses the room on Mondays and Wednesdays, and a Bloxwich Sub Aqua club who use the pool also then go on to use the bar facility. The bar is also used after Old Boys Cricket Matches and the Annual Dinners have been known to go on until the early hours because the bar is available.
The Club is looking for volunteers to help out with bar work on a Friday evening: if you are interested, please contact Alan Porter (see contacts) to discuss it further.
All profits from the sports and social club are returned to the School and have contributed towards new furniture for the Sports Hall, and rugby and cricket equipment.
The club is always open to people looking to hire it for a special event. If you are an Old Boy and are considering a re-union then obviously this would be the ideal venue. This has already been done a couple of time with certain years and has proved to be very successful.
