NPL Sports Club is an independent organisation run by a committee (the "Main Committee") elected by the membership. The Club ground is located at the edge of Bushy Park and access to the ground is via the NPL gate on Queens Road. The sporting activities of the Club are broken down into "Sections". The provision of facilities is the responsibility of the Main Committee but each Section is organised by its own committee and most are styled as a separate club e.g. "NPL Cricket Club".
All members have "Social Membership" (currently £30.00 p.a.). This entitles members to the use of the changing rooms, bar, snooker table and other general facilities. Members who are active in Sections also have to pay the additional subscription determined by their Section (however some sections e.g. athletics and amateur dramatics make no additional charge).
The Club has the Main Pavilion Complex and an associated changing room block. Adjacent to the changing room block is the Table Tennis Hut. The Pavilion itself has a numerous rooms and facilities. There is currently an appeal to raise money to replace the changing rooms!
|'The Tea Room' is the most historic part of our venue. We believe was originally located in the Old Deer Park (Richmond) and was even used in an early black and white movie! We think in the 1930's it was relocated to it's current location nestling in the grounds of Bushy Park and Bushy House.|
Today it is used as a great venue for Band Nights, Weddings, Comedy Nights, Disco's and an all round good time! We also have the cheapest pool table in town, at 70p a game and we have a darts board and other bar games available.
The Tea Room and old Pav Bar ca. 1997
|'The Peattie Bar & Lounge', was superbly revamped for the Millenium following great efforts made by membership fundraising events. It replaced the old bar previously revamped in the 1960's. Named after our great friend, the late Gordon Peattie, who was passionate about the club and instrumental in getting the funding for the Millennium rebuild. |
