From Monday 12th April our grounds and pavilion are open on a limited basis. Sport has resumed, strictly adhering to the requirements of the Cricket, Tennis, Archery and Rugby national governing bodies. For more details visits the websites of the various clubs found below.
The pavilion is now able to offer a limited bar service for consumption of alcohol on the grounds. The rule of 6 will apply through to the middle of May. Visitors and members are requested to use the tables provided in front of the pavilion and to avoid bringing their own bottles onto the grounds. Please remember this is a sports ground and the use of glass bottles and glasses not allowed outside. Hours of opening will vairy on the requirements of clubs and of course the weather. We do welcome any non members to use our pavilion and outside tables.
We do plan on opening the bar on Saturday’s and Sundays and as demand dictates during the evenings.
We want to thank everyone who has been enjoying our grounds for daily exercise and your continued commitment to maintaining social distancing. We regret that our sports grounds are now closed to dogs regardless of them being on a leash. Old Deer Park is considered an enclosed sports grounds and is therefore covered by the London Borough of Richmond Upon Thames protection order 2017 (Dog Control).
This order considers it an offense to allow a dog to defecate on the grounds where the owner does not immediately remove the feces. Old Deer Park will take action on owners with dogs on the grounds who are allowed to defecate.
