Shorts Sports & Recreation Club

Welcome to Shorts Sports & Recreation Club (SSRC), one of only a few in the province where Members, as a ‘Community’ can take part in a number of Sports and Recreational Sub-Sections and use the SSRC facilities all at one central location.

SSRC is based within the greater Belfast area just a few minutes from the city centre, George Best City Airport, and Holywood, Co.Down and is located on major public transport routes.

Why not pay us a visit to check out what there is on offer. SSRC is open to all, 7 days a week with it’s own easy and secure parking facilities. Click on the scrolling banners on this page for the latest promotion or big event, or keep an eye on our News page or scroll down this Welcome page for a snapshot of all that we have on offer.

The vibrant club house includes the SSRC ‘Sports’ Bar with regular big screen TV showings of all the top sports events and various promotions, changing facilities, and a 200plus seater Ballroom with one of the few ‘sprung’ dance floors in the country for a regular Calendar of Entertainment and Classes.

Outside there are fourteen acres of grassed sporting areas and a fitness suite in an annex to the club house.

Membership of the SSRC ‘Community’ is open to all and includes the opportunity to join the Sports and Recreational sub-sections at a significantly reduced price over similar facilities at other locations, especially if you were to participate in more than one sub section. Room bookings are especially appealing for members but non-members can also book a room.
