The recently redeveloped County Ground in Beckenham offers fantastic sports facilities and a range of options for conference and events in its newly built function centre and existing pavilion.

The County Ground is host to numerous local sports clubs and businesses who train and use the amenities all year round. We have become established as a unique and exciting event space within South East London.

There are a number of advertising, sponsorship and corporate hospitality opportunities available for 2018 specific to Beckenham; please contact anna.spencer.kent@ecb.co.uk for more information.

The County Ground has fantastic sports facilities open to the local community. We have an indoor cricket school with five lanes designed specifically for cricket with excellent lighting, a ‘true’ surface and room for a longer run up than traditional venues.

The sports hall can also be used for netball and badminton and is ideal for most other sports.

Outside we have a 3G astroturf football pitch, two tennis courts and a basketball court, all with floodlights.
The cricket pitch can also be hired and the new 2,000 seater stand is yours to fill!
