History of the Club
The Metropolitan Police Bushey Sports Club is one of 4 Police Sports Club associated with the Metropolitan Police Service. Built in 1967, Bushey is a purpose built members sports club offering sporting, leisure and social facilities for family and friends of serving police personnel, retired officers and staff. Our sports club was constructed on land bought from the Royal Masonic School for Boys, currently the American University building, which unfortunately closed in 1977 due to declining numbers. In the early days of the sports club, the Police Cadets were used to hunt for and remove flints by hand from the playing fields. This was done to avoid injuries to players of both rugby and football.
Today The Metropolitan Police Bushey Sports Club has some of the best sporting facilities and grounds in the county, hosting a wide variety of individuals and sports teams from across Hertfordshire and North London, including cricket, football, and bowls. The club also hosts a number of social events from Cabaret to Comedy Nights, Quiz Nights to Boxing Evenings, and Wedding Functions to Specialist Dine Nights.
For 41 years the club has entertained members of the Police Service, their friends and family and with the highly regarded reputation it has gained, will continue for another 41 years.
The club currently has four fully appointed function rooms, catering for a wide variety of occasion. From wedding receptions, birthday parties, conferences and retirement functions, to large-scale black tie Summer Balls, Bushey has a function room to suit at great value for money. Three of our functions rooms are also fully wedding licensed so you can have your special day entirely at The Club.For more information on holding a function or using our conference facilities, the professionally trained office staff would be more than happy to help.
