The Regent's Park is the biggest outdoor sports area in central London. We operate a seasonal sports programme with football, rugby and lacrosse in winter and cricket, softball and touch rugby during the summer.

Public notice:

The Hub remains closed until further notice but our winter sports season (pitch only bookings) continues. Where sports have received government approval to return to play (such as football) we are requesting clubs written COVID-19 plan and risk assessments to ensure compliance with NGB and government guidelines. Due to this increased administration we are only accepting block bookings. Enquiry details are below. For up to date information on changes around the Royal Parks please check our updates page.

Informal and self-organised games of more than 6 are not permitted in accordance with government guidance.


To request a sports pitch, select from the following two sports seasons:

Winter sports pitches

Please note for the foreseeable future due to the extra administration required to host matches we are:

  • only accepting block bookings of 5 or more related bookings
  • only accepting pitch-only bookings. Changing rooms and equipment hire are currently unavailable
  • asking to see all clubs written COVID-19 plan and risk assessments to ensure compliance with NGB and government guidelines. This will be requested prior to your first pitch booking.
  • Informal games (i.e. if you do not have a pitch booking through The Hub) should be limited to max 6 people in line with government guidance.

Summer sports pitches

We are not accepting any summer sports bookings this year.

If you would like to be added to our distribution list for more information on summer 2021 bookings (cricket, softball, rounders, events and parties) please email thehub@royalparks.org.uk. We will be in touch next year.

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 (i.e. if you do not have a pitch booking through The Hub) should be limited to max 6 people in line with government guidance.

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 booked.
