Hang Out at The Hanger

The Hanger Youth Club

It's a fun place for you and your friends to hang out and talk but if not play one of the Table games. There is table tennis which is a lot of fun. The pool table is fun and if you want you can challenge your friend to see who wins. There also is a classic table football, I have always found this fun and every time it's out i go and play with some of my friends. The youth club itself is great to calm down before or after an exam. Other games the youth club offers is a T.V and a Wii console with some games which I thought I wouldn't like but started playing for a laugh with my mates. The youth club is a place which you and your mates that go to other school can hang Out and have fun. If you're not that type of person, you can always come and make friends, everyone is really nice and if not there are puzzles, games and crafts which can be fun. There is also a tuck shop which has snacks and drinks with prices at 10p to 60p, and if that wasn't enough there is live music playing from a computer and if you're lucky you can put your favourite song on. The entry fee is very cheap at just £2. I have been coming here for over 2 years and I love meeting my friends here. It's just great !!

The PCA-supported Hanger youth club meets at the Brentham Club (map) on Thursdays during term time from 7 to 9pm, with entry charged at £2.  The Hanger is aimed at young people who attend secondary school, age 11+ (school years 7 and above) and is a fun place for young people to get together to socialise, play pool and table tennis, play on the Wii, enjoy board games and create on the craft table.  One recent session also involved cooking lessons in the Brentham Club coffee shop. The Hanger has a trained youth worker along with volunteer helpers to ensure that adult:child ratios are maintained.  If you would like to join the team of volunteers (sixth formers note this kind of thing is good for your UCAS application) or just find out more about the Hanger contact youthclub [at] pitshanger [dot] org [dot] uk (subject: The%20Hanger) ( youthclub [at] pitshanger [dot] org [dot] uk).
