Tabard Gardens grabs ‘Outstanding London Sports Venue Award’ for August

Tabard Gardens sports venue is the winner of Playfinder’s  ‘Outstanding London Sports Venue Award’ for August.

Outstanding London Sports Venue Award

Tabard Gardens is home to a brilliant astroturf football pitch that caters for 5-a-side, 7-a-side and 11-a-side grassroots games. The football facility is set in a large park in Southwark and locals can use the outdoor gym, table tennis tables and children’s play area in the vicinity. Tabard Gardens has also been awarded  the highly acclaimed Green Flag status.

Sport England’s latest research into participation in the borough found that 37.9% of Southwark residents are involved in physical activity at least once a week.

The award, which is determined by Playfinder users, was based on pitch quality, venue amenities and customer experience.

Playfinder is a platform for sports players who want to find and book sports venues in London. Users have the choice of over 1,000 venues for 15 featured sports.

Jamie Foale, Co-Founder of Playfinder, said: “August saw the return of the football season and our users have been enquiring about grassroots pitch availability in their droves. Tabard Gardens is a top facility and we’re delighted to reward all the hard work that goes on behind the scenes to make it so special.”

Playfinder will be presenting an award to a stand out sports venue each month based on the feedback from its users. To find out more about the award or how to sign up to Playfinder please visit
