Announcing UEFA Grade 5 Pitch Rating For The Lensbury Hotel & Resort

Elite Sports, Stays, and Experiences in South West London

25 acres of first-class leisure & sports accommodation, sporting facilities, dining, spa, business and conferencing, all in a breath taking riverside setting… is a big fan of The Lensbury Hotel & Resort, and we’re excited to introduce even more top teams and sports enthusiasts to experience London’s riverside resort with its landmark new recognition.

We have been working with The Lensbury for some time now, and never fail to be impressed. In addition to the UEFA Grade 5 Pitch, fellow sports junkies will love the similarly elite-level practice pitch, state-of-the-art gym facilities, adaptable conditioning areas, team meeting & media rooms, 25-metre swimming pool, recovery facilities and 24 tennis courts with a variety of surfaces to practice that serve.

Oh, and the hotel! Did we mention the top-notch hotel? 155 rooms and suites, excellent dining, drinks selection and various other tantalising options which offer something for everyone. If team or individual nutrition are on your to-do list, The Lensbury‘s expert chefs have that well in hand with private dining facilities also available for your team. Security, cleaning and safety protocols are also taken care of, so you and your team can focus on peak performance.

UEFA Grade 5: An Elite Achievement

Only a few grounds make the cut for UEFA Grade 5, with this rating putting The Lensbury in the lofty company of Wembley, Old Trafford, Cardiff’s Millennium Stadium, and Barcelona’s Camp Nou thanks to the incredible work which the grounds team put into maintaining the elite pitch.

You’ll find nothing but the best standard of spacious changing rooms for players and athletes, with “Direct, protected and secure access routes from the parking lot to the changing rooms and from these facilities onto the field.”

Now take that to the next level, because staying at The Lensbury puts your deluxe hotel suite just a stone’s throw from those pitches, gym, changing rooms and recovery facilities too. That makes practice sessions, time out, travel, and so many other activities more convenient and time-efficient, and we’d call that a win any day.

A Resort Fit For The Stars

These acres of excellence tend to inspire guests to reach great heights, with the resort having recently hosted England’s Lionesses, Manchester United, the All Black’s, England Rugby, Samoa Rugby Union, and World XV.

The hotel and resort’s many elite features include:

  • Club membership packages
  • Fully-equipped gym and heavy-weights gym
  • Extensive grounds for walks and relaxation
  • Studios for Pilates and other classes
  • A tennis club featuring 24 courts
  • Dedicate Watersports centre
  • Junior activities
  • Spacious dining areas, including an undercover terrace and a deli counter plus the option for private dining for elite teams
  • Summer BBQs and outdoor bar for use throughout the year
  • Superb spa centre, including professional sports massage

We could list many more features and facilities, but you’re probably getting the picture by now…  

Sports teams and professionals, as well as sports enthusiasts and adventurers looking for a great getaway, can rest assured that their needs will be well catered for, thanks to The Lensbury’s flexible approach and world-class attention to detail, all backed up by 100 years of sporting heritage which can be seen around the grounds.

An Ideal Base

While London’s riverside resort may feel far from the bustle of the City, Central London and Heathrow Airport are quick train rides away, with Twickenham, Richmond Upon Thames, Kew Gardens, and many other popular destinations right on your doorstep. has recently launched a Thames Boating package in partnership with The Lensbury, giving you a chance to drift and explore the Thames on your own boat, and at your own pace. This could be the perfect way to unwind with your sports team, your friends, or that someone special! More about boating >>

Speaking of those special someones, you’ll be pleased to know that friends and partners will have plenty to enjoy at the resort if they aren’t joining in your sporting endeavours. There’s a wealth of on-site activities – energetic, pampering, or something in between – not to mention the bright lights, theatres, restaurants, and many other attractions of Central London, and the quiet elegance of Teddington.

Being in such close proximity to major sports destinations and Central London itself makes The Lensbury a perfect base where teams can practice and compete on professional pitches, relax in ultimate comfort, and get into the best possible mindset for any event.

Congratulations to The Lensbury on achieving its UEFA Grade 5 rating! We look forward to hearing from many happy visitors in the upcoming months and years.
