Sports Clubs to Join After Settling Into Your New Home

If you are searching for flats to rent in Kettering, you might be looking to make new friends in the area of your rented property. One of the easiest ways to do this is to join a sports club. It’s a win, win as it combines the chance to be active, while also getting to know people with similar interests. Here, Ashan Property letting agents has listed a few sports clubs that you might want to join once you have moved into your rented home.



If you fancy a try at an ancient sport and want to hone your accuracy skills, archery might be the perfect activity for you. Kettering Archery Club meets year round on Sunday mornings and on Friday evenings in the summer months at Kettering Town Cricket and Sports Club. For the more competitive players, there are regular competitions to take part in at local, county or national level.

Boot Camp

Boot camp training sessions offer ‘army style’ training outdoors using a variety of different equipment such as logs, nets and tyres. Sessions take place whatever the weather, so it’s a great sport for those who want to be pushed to their limit and don’t mind getting muddy along the way. Regiment Fitness, for instance, offers morning, evening and Sunday training sessions in various parks and recreational grounds including in Burton Latimer, Wellingborough and Market Harborough.


Karate is a way to combine improving your fitness with self-defence techniques. If the idea of learning a new martial arts skill appeals to you, there are a number of karate classes around the town. These include beginners’ classes run by the Tiska Kettering and Mawsley Shotokan Karate Club, which is accredited by the English Karate Federation and the World Karate Federation.


Pilates improves balance, posture and overall body strength, with particular emphasis on core strength. Whether you are a beginner or have been practising Pilates for decades, you’ll find a class for you. Body in Motion runs several small group sessions including pregnancy and post-natal classes. So if you have only just moved into your flat to rent in Kettering, joining a class is a great way to meet other new mums!


Kettering Amateur Swimming Club, based on London Road, celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2014. This swimming and water polo club has more than 200 active members, from children through to pensioners. You’ll find training sessions on almost every night of the week at one of three different pools. Serious swimmers have the chance to compete in galas across the UK.


If racquet sports are more your thing, Kettering Tennis Club on Lake Avenue welcomes new members. From beginner to professional coaching or competitions, you will find something to inspire you. It you aren’t sure about committing to membership, pay and play facilities are available.


This fast-growing sport combines cycling, swimming and running, and is the ideal club to join for competitive types, or those who just want to improve their strength and fitness. Welland Valley Triathalon Club has members from all over the area, including Market Harborough and Kettering. Training takes place at the Corby International Swimming Pool and at the all season athletics track, also in Corby.


Are you looking for some gentle exercise and relaxation, and at the same do you want to improve your flexibility and muscle tone? If so, yoga might be just the thing! It’s easy to find a group to join, as there are a host of yoga classes for people of all ages and abilities in the Kettering area. Jacqui Barnett, for example, runs classes both in Burton Latimer, and in the main hall in Windsor Gardens, Kettering.
