Looking after our pitches

You may see pitches that are not being used but this does not 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.

As a charity it costs in excess of £250,000 per year for the upkeep of the sports pitches in The Regent’s Park and those using the facilities are asked to contribute to their upkeep by booking.

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.
