The Village Squash Club

Here is an advert for the opening of the Village Squash Club on Captain Clarke Road. Unfortunately I don't know what year this was. Photobucket  
The Village is still going strong. Although it is now known as De Vere Village Hotel Manchester Hyde most people still refer to it as "The Village".
