Teddington’s best kept sporting secret

After more than a year in and out of lockdown, spending time outdoors and exercising is more important than ever for our mental health and physical wellbeing, and where better than in beautiful grounds on the edge of Bushy Park?

Teddington-based Bushy Park Sports Club is an inclusive, independent sports club; their  goal is to help everyone benefit from an active lifestyle and enjoy the great outdoors.

A wide range of sports are on offer for adults and children including tennis, cricket, football and hockey – all with frequent coaching sessions and the option to participate in leagues/matches. The club’s professional ground staff are dedicated to producing excellent playing surfaces for all sports sections – football pitches, cricket squares and tennis courts (hard and grass).

If an exercise class is more your thing, you can choose from bootcamps, yoga and Tai-Chi. 

A small, well-equipped indoor gym studio is also available for members to use for their own workouts or for 1-2-1 training sessions. 

Social scene

The Pavilion, with its newly refurbished hall featuring folding doors that open onto the grounds, is at the heart of the club. The licensed bar is fully equipped with Wi-Fi and flat screen TVs to watch major sporting events. As well as providing refreshments, including freshly ground artisan coffee, the Pavilion is a hub for social events, as well as table tennis and darts tournaments.

With its stunning views across Bushy Park, it’s worth noting the Pavilion is available for hire for private functions, with an array of catering options on offer from local family-run Piptree Catering. 

Taking care of body and mind

A recently refurbished treatment room is home to an in-house physiotherapist and a cranial osteopath, both of whom have been practising for over 20 years. Physiotherapist David O’Neill is highly experienced in treating both acute and chronic conditions, sports-related injuries and the rehabilitation of post-surgical patients. The club’s cranial osteopath, Nargis Ahmad, offers treatments to calm the body and mind – she provides osteopathy for natural pain relief and has helped hundreds of people including pregnant women, fitness fans, babies, children and older people who are starting to suffer from aches and pains.
