The Hub and Regent’s Park Sports pitches are some of the busiest outdoor public facilities in England. 10,000 bookings are made every year for football, rugby, lacrosse, cricket, softball, rounders and athletics. All bookings are managed from the Hub. The Park operates a seasonal sports programme with over 250 junior football teams playing on Saturdays throughout the winter sports season in The Regent’s Park Youth League. Many junior clubs, schools and universities view the Park as their home pitch. In addition, regular Pilates and Yoga classes are organised. Weekly learning disability classes are also organised along with weekly walking football sessions in partnership with Chelsea FC for the Over 50s. Local children without the means would often like to play in the junior clubs based in the Park, but lack equipment and funds. The clubs support some subsidised places, but The Friends would also like to help by providing funds and leadership, possibly leading to a youth league or entering teams into established activities based at the Hub.
