Welcome to King’s House School Sports Ground, a 35 acre site in West London offering extensive and versatile space for schools, clubs, businesses and individuals. Located in Chiswick on the banks of the River Thames, the Sports Ground is home to King’s House School and is run as a community asset.
The Grounds were opened in 1926 by King George V and Prince Albert and were run by the Civil Service until 2010. The site has been home to the Civil Service Rugby Club and Civil Service Football Club since its opening.
In 2010 King’s House School took over the management of the grounds, and boys in Year 1 upwards use the facilities for their Games lessons and fixtures: KHS is an independent day prep school for boys aged 3 to 13 with a co-ed Nursery in Richmond. A range of local state and independent schools also use the site for their PE lessons, matches, events and Sports Days.
Over 100 different clubs use the ground for their training and home fixtures, including the Civil Service Football club, London Wayfarers Hockey Club, London Scottish RFU and Excel Sports. Corporate events and away days are held at the ground, alongside regular events such as the Try Tag Ruby tournaments.
The Sports Ground is also home to King’s Tennis Centre, which was established in 2018. The facilities include six floodlit tennis courts on acrylic and artificial clay surfaces.
Elite clubs and athletes have also been hosted by the ground: the England Senior Men’s Rugby squad held a two-day training camp here in May 2022. Rugby 7s national teams trained at the site in the lead up to the London Sevens, and elite tennis athletes train at King’s Tennis Centre.
We are proud of our commitment to community involvement and public benefit initiatives. Over the last decade, this has included a variety of fundraising and charity sports events, as well as hosting local youth groups. The site is home to Grenfell Athletic FC, who were founded by Rupert Taylor in the aftermath of the Grenfell Fire.
