These groups are in the early stages of formation.  Use the links to register your interest ahead of their first meeting.   

Group Name  

                                           Description and Contact
 Gardening Group

Are you interested in all aspects of gardening and horticulture? A long standing group has been dormant for a number of months and we hope to revive it. Previously it operated with a mix of knowledgeable guest speakers combined with expert guided garden visits but how it is run in the future will be for future members to decide.

If you are interested in getting this group going again, please contact for further information.

Bus Pass (group 2) 

Many members have a West Yorkshire Metro card providing free travel on buses and heavily subsidised local train travel. One u3a group already exists taking trips using these passes and now we have sufficient interest to start a second group. But we still need an organiser. Shared with others and operating a rota might only mean involvement once a year so not too onerous.

We intend to organise a first time outing in January 2023. So if you are interested but have not yet given us your name, would you please let us know at


A mix of badminton, tennis and table tennis played on a badminton court.  To read more about this new sport, select here.

A court has been booked at Kirklands in Menston on January 11th from 1pm-3pm.  The cost of hiring the court is £25 an hour to be shared between participants.  There will be a demonstration of the game by a member of the Leeds u3a.

If you are interested please email this to as soon as possible so the court booking can be confirmed.

Blues Appreciation

Following the success of the Pre-war and Post-war Blues courses run in the autumn of 2022, it is hoped to establish a permanent Blues Appreciation Group in early 2023.
