About London
playing fields

We are a charity that transforms lives through sport and physical activity by protecting, providing and promoting playing fields in London.

Our seven grounds across six London boroughs are used by over 200,000 people every year to stay fit and healthy. With cricket and football pitches available to hire, we provide Londoners with the opportunity to benefit from sport.

Our groundbreaking projects support London’s most disadvantaged groups to be physically active and reduce obesity. They also help to improve mental health and cut crime.

There is enormous pressure to build on open space so we campaign to protect London fields under threat of development and in the long term restore them to full use.

By encouraging more people to play sport and be physically active on affordable, accessible and attractive playing fields, we’re creating a happier, healthier, more cohesive London.
