Why Not Join In!
Tintinhull's clubs and groups are able to utilise the village's many excellent amenities and these - together with the wonderful location - enable the many activities residents can choose to enjoy..
Short Mat Bowls Club
Following commissioning of our new hall the Short Mat Bowling Club was set up meeting Friday mornings and Tuesday evenings. We are a friendly club and currently have 35 regular members. The Club is properly constituted with a management committee being affiliated to the English Short Mat Bowling Association and registered with Somerset Short Mat Bowls Association.
Tintinhull has an established Drama group that stages traditional Pantomimes as well as conventional productions including Drama Supper evenings. The group utilises the new Village Hall's fully equipped stage with lighting and sound, and has an enthusiastic membership that covers both on stage and back stage talents.
The Gardening Club, founded in 2012 has over sixty members and is affiliated to the Somerset Federation of Gardening Clubs and a corporate member of The Gardens Group Gold Club. The latter offers members a wide variety of discounts, benefits and support. The Club has a year-round programme of visits, speakers and events, which normally take place on the 3rd Friday of the month.
The Tintinhull Tennis Club plays on the two high quality, all-weather courts on the Recreation Ground in central Tintinhull. The Club has an Agreement with the Recreation Ground Trust that provides Club members with access to the courts and the Club runs the online court booking system and generally looks after the courts on behalf of the Village.
Rising from the ashes of the disbanded Tintinhull WI the Phoenix Ladies aim to meet on the third Wednesday of the month to enjoy a variety of activities, talks, films, shows, walks, meals and sometimes let the men join in too! They have participated in concerts in the village hall and always have great fun.
Local History Group
The Tintinhull Local History Group promotes an interest in Local History and provides a forum for that interest. The Group holds evening meetings September through to May with a regular attendance of 40 to 50 members. Meetings include illustrated talks and demonstrations and on special occasions also host historic plays and exhibitions.
A number of popular classes are run regularly at our superb Village Hall. To keep fit why not try Yoga, Pilates, or Karate. For something a little different you could also try out Line Dancing.
Outdoor activities include a Walking Football group that plays friendly games at the sports ground. There's also the Ivy Lunch Group for the over '50s that meets on the second Tuesday of each month, with a local lunch outing.
Tintinhull Open Gardens Group
TOGG was set up in 2010 with the first open garden event in 2011. Since then up to 18 village gardens have opened in 2013, 2015 and 2018. In 2020 a plant sale helped raise £800 for St Margaret’s Church and Yeovil Hospital. A further plant sale in 2021 raised £800 with proceeds divided between the Trussell Trust and St Margaret’s Church. Since inception we have raised over £12,300 For local charities!
