      Hi Benjamin

      Thanks for this. There appears to be a fault with the booking number. I will check with colleagues if it has changed and update the website accordingly.

    Hi Benjamin – problem solved. The number is in fact 0845 130 8998. If you call on this number you’ll be able to book. I’ve updated the page accordingly. Apologies for inconvenience caused.

    Just discovered the cricket pitch is really good (but isn’t mentioned above) except that now that the strip has been repositioned the boundary (formed by the long grass) on one side is really short. We had an excellent game of Rough Cricket (10 playing) there last night. Peter Avery

    Ok. I’m not aware of basketball groups that use the court but you might want to turn up and see if you can get a game with others.

    The booking number for Brockwell tennis courts does not work!
    How can I book for tomorrow morning?!

    • mallgood73 says:

      Laura – thanks. I understand that there is a fault with the phone booking system and Lambeth Council is chasing this with tennis courts operator Greenwich Leisure Ltd. Apologies for the inconvenience.

  8. mallgood73 says:

    Greenwich Leisure has confirmed that there is another line at the booking office 020 7738 6834 which takes bookings for tennis etc.

    Can you please let me know the times to book the tennis court? Until 7pm?


  11. mallgood73 says:

    Sonya – there is no excuse for terrible customer service. We will forward your complaint to Lambeth and copy you in.

    Just moved South from Tower Hamlets and they have an excellent on line tennis court booking site.
    Does Lambeth have anything similar instead of having to book by telephone.
    Many thanks

    • There should be a link to the Sports Booking line (service by Greenwich Leisure)on our website but I am not completely sure how Lambeth are running bookings at the moment. There has been a lot of reorganisation.
      Sorry for the delay. Let us know how you get on.
      Best wishes

    Hello, I wanted to enquire about the policy for yoga teachers conducting group classes in your park. Is it allowed; is there a fee? Please let me know if you think it will be feasible to plan a class here during the summer.
    All the best, Eleanor

    Hello, I would like to know how long in advance the basketball court in brockwell park must be booked and how much it costs? I saw it has been refurbished recently and would be interested to use it for short practice sessions on a weekly basis.

  15. Tina says:

    Hi, does anyone know if the basketball court is open? I had a conversation with Lambeth Parks but they said they were not involved in bookings and that it was on a first come first served basis…which would be great except it was locked last time I was in the park. Any help appreciated!
