YMCA White House

 

YMCA White House is a busy, welcoming centre that has been at the heart of the community since 1978.

Community activities for all ages

Managed by YMCA London South West on behalf of the Hampton on Thames Community Association, YMCA White House invites people of all ages to join in with one of the many activities and classes or to simply relax in the comfortable café.

The centre is home to several groups and clubs (sections) that run group exercise classes, arts and crafts groups and health and wellbeing services.  Choose from a wide range of adult’s activities and children’s activities.

YMCA White House also houses a spacious pre-school, the Citizens Advice and YMCA White House Foodbank.  It offers rooms and halls for hire, including an outdoor sports pitch for football, tennis or netball.

“I would recommend the centre to others as the staff are very friendly, know what they are doing and they are happy to assist and answer any queries you have. The prices are very reasonable and there are a good range of activities that anyone can get involved in. Staff present information very well; it is easy to follow and understand. I really liked the feel of this centre.”
