A-Star Sports. Sports coaching for children.
A-Star Sports is a fun-filled multi-sports experience for children aged 2-10 years. We offer inclusive, developmental multi-sports coaching in a positive environment that begins with an initial ABC-based programme (agility, balance and co-ordination) and develops into a core of ten sports - basketball, cricket, dodgeball, football, handball, hockey, rounders, rugby, tennis and volleyball. Our core curriculum is supplemented by a programme of activities following 'sport in the news' and sporting culture.
Classes are held on Friday afternoons in Kelsall Community Centre.

Badminton - Kelsall Badminton Society
There has been a social (not league) Badminton Club meeting in the Kelsall Community Centre on Tuesday evenings (8:00pm to 9:30pm) since 1995. Over the years the number of subscribing members has gradually reduced to around 10 at this time, and new blood is required for the winter season 2010/11. £2 per night for the 2010/11 season to cover hall hire charges - no membership fee. Any individuals interested in taking part should contact Sharon Harley on 01829-759362 or turn up on a Tuesday evening.
Bowling - Kelsall Bowling Club
Kelsall Bowling Club was established in the early 1920's through The Kelsall Village Institute and War Memorial Charity that was set up to honour those servicemen who had served and given their lives during WW1. The green is situated adjacent to the tennis courts behind the Social Club.
The Bowling Club can boast some successes over the years and was one of the most prestigious clubs in the district. Its recent history has seen some success too and a major refurbishment of the club house was carried out in 2010 including a new purpose built shelter for visiting teams. This was all made possible by a bequest in the will of Mr Gordon Davies, a local man who left a substantial sum to the War Memorial Charity for equal distribution among its constituents.
Competitive matches are played in The Norley Afternoon and Evening Leagues and The Mid Cheshire League. These are mixed teams. There is a Ladies team that plays in the Mid Cheshire League. On Wednesday afternoons there is a popular Round Robin for people of all abilities. The Club is always eager to attract new players who would be assured of a warm welcome.
For further information please contact Club Secretary Mr Andrew Nicholas (01829-752029) or Treasurer Mr Fred Spruce (01829-752488).
Golf - Kelsall Golf Society
Formed in 1978 and now in its thirty fifth year, the Society currently has 36 members, who play at a variety of venues from April to September each year. We play approximately eight games each season usually on a Friday, and in addition there are two matches played against local societies. The programme for 2013 will include games at Oswestry, Davenport, Wolstanton, Chorlton-cum-Hardy, Wrexham, Hawarden, Market Drayton and Runcorn when we compete for trophies generally presented by local businesses. At the AGM held on 13th January 2013 Robin Ashcroft was elected as Captain.
Indoor Bowling - Kelsall Indoor Bowling Club
The Club was set up in the 1990s, shortly after the Community Centre was opened, to give an opportunity for those who played outdoors during the summer months to continue indoors during the winter. Although it is a very different game and is played on mats it is nevertheless skilful and competitive but above all friendly and sociable. The club plays on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons each week from September to March. Several years ago the Club entered two teams in the Cheshire Villages Indoor Bowling Tournament, Kelsall Boothdale and Kelsall. Matches are played against teams ranging from Farndon in the west to Rixton, north east of Warrington, with many others in between. At the end of each season there is a play-off at The Winsford Lifestyle Centre between those teams that have won their individual groups and a general tournament for those players who have not been so successful. Kelsall team players have always featured in the general tournament - so far. Results and group tables can be found here.
