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.

We are not accepting any future bookings for sports, events, fitness licences or parties for the foreseeable future.

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. jumpers for goalposts) are allowed in non-marked sports pitch areas. Any regular or organised events (e.g. company sports days) require permission which we are unable to grant at this time.

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.
