Posted:Just to add that two of us had a very pleasant couple of hours at this club last night - thanks to Martin and everybody for making us feel so welcome smile



The club has been running a long time: at least twenty years and probably even longer (the actual origins having become lost in the mists of time), making it one of the oldest juggling clubs in the UK. They don't publicise themselves widely, as space is fairly limited (medium sized church hall). There were about 15 or so people at the club, not all practicing at once. I reckon you could probably fit about 15-20 people on the floor before it felt crowded. There's a small patch of grass outside the hall, with enough space for a couple of people to spin fire at the same time.



The venue is easily reachable by train, tram or bus, followed a short walk. If you drive there, be warned that the parking meters in Croydon run until midnight and that the one way system is a nightmare if you don't know the area. There is some free parking available at the venue and the church next door, but again this is very limited and by no means guaranteed.



All in all, a very worthwhile visit and I'll definitely be going again while Spitz is out of action weavesmiley

I went to Croydon Juggling club when i was in Croydon...not very often as clashes with Spitz.

Whenever i see this thread i keep thinking, "wow someone in my area" then remember i haven't lived in Croydon area for about 3 years.
