Joining the Club

If you are interested in becoming a member of ECH or you know somebody wants to the first step is easy. Feel free to surf our web site and get as much information as you wish.

Secondly we invite you to contact the club either in person by email eastchesh@gmail.com or telephone 0161 330 4602 we need to know what aspect of athletics you are interested in so we can introduce you to the appropriate coach. Sorry but we cannot take children under 8 years of age.

Lastly come and have a go at a taster session join a group for the night and see what we do. We accept athletes who have little or no experience and athletes with disabilities are also very welcome.
