Sports Facilities

Tennis Courts

The Park provides 6 publicly accessible concrete courts for tennis.

As we understand it, bookings for tennis courts should now be made at www.better.org.uk. You have to register with them but this is free, not a membership.
 
Problems with booking can be reported to parks@lambeth.gov.uk or sports@lambeth.gov.uk.
Brockwell Park Community Partners does not have any involvement in booking sports facilities.

Basketball

The Park provides one publicly accessible concrete court for basketball. 

 Cricket 

A cricket net is available for public use next to the tennis courts. The cricket field can be booked via email at Lambeth.Parks@GLL.ORG

Bowling Green

The Bowling Green is out of use following a loss of funding for upkeep. The Brockwell Bowlers have tried to keep the green going as log as possible but , as volunteers, they have not been able to maintain the green to the standard required. We were sorry to lose them. The future of that area is under discussion.

BMX Track

A track available to BMX pedal cyclists. Headgear must be worn while using the track. Brixton BMX club works with a number of British Cycling qualified coaches to offer coaching to riders for all ages. The club also runs Wingz, a disability inclusive cycling project.

    1. 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.

      Regards

  1. 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.

  2. 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

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

    1. 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.

    Hi,
    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
    Sarah

    1. 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.
    Thanks

    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!

  8. There has been (even more) reorganisation in lambeth and Sports are now part of the Parks service. We think this will result in a better system for booking but have asked for more information on progress with bookings. Online booking, as you say, would be so much easier.
