Free sessions with Will to Win

We're currently offering the chance for free sports sessions with our partner Will to Win, as part of an effort to help make Londoners more active. All ages and abilities are welcome, you just have to fill out a short survey.

Looking after our pitches

We aim to provide high quality sports pitches and to do so need to maintain and rest the playing surface at various times throughout the year.

We spend in excess of £250,000 per annum on the upkeep of the sports pitches in Regent’s Park.

We do not make a profit from the charges so we ask you respect our policy of keeping off the sports pitches if you do not have a booking.

Informal play areas

You may see pitches that are not being used but this doesn't mean they are free to play on. We regularly rest and carry out maintenance work on the sports pitches to ensure their high quality throughout the year.

Informal games are allowed in non-marked sports pitch areas. In the summer you can find these in Marylebone Green and Cumberland Green East.

There are few informal play areas around the Hub, therefore we ask you not to base your informal games in this area as you will be asked to move if you play on a sports pitch which you haven't book.
