Imber Court was purchased in 1919 as a training centre for the Metropolitan Police Mounted Branch. Additional land was later donated for sport and recreation and a Deed of Covenant to that effect is still in existence.

Police Officers turned much of the land and meadows into playing surfaces with monies they donated themselves and some from The National Police Fund and these funds also paid for the building of the main Clubhouse.

The Club was officially opened on 11th June 1929 by H.R.H. Prince George and has been a private members Club for Serving Officers and Police staff since.

I have been involved with the Club as a sports player since 1984 and have served on the Metropolitan Police Rugby Club and Imber Court Cricket Club Committees. In January 2016 I became General Manager. There have been many changes to the Club during that time.

In 2015, we opened our doors to the public and have also become a Limited Company. We are still a Club for MPS staff, but now offer membership to those wishing to join the Club for socialising, gym membership, swimming or all three.

We can cater for weddings, birthday parties, christenings, charity fundraisers, and end of season dinners. The rooms can hold 25 to 300 for any one event and we are licensed until 1am. We also offer a wide range of catering options.

The Clubhouse has excellent facilities for meetings and conferencing, catering for up to 250 delegates and our rates are very competitive. We can also provide full catering services from tea and coffee to finger buffets or banquets. 

In the Members Bar we have Sky and BT Sports and show all of the major sporting events, plus our Metropol Café is open daily and serves food cooked to order and snacks.

Our first class sports fields include two cricket squares, cricket nets, six grass courts, and an outside bowls green during the summer. The rest of the year, we have a first class floodlit rugby pitch with a 600 seater stadium, 3 full size football pitches and 7,and 9 A side pitches for youth teams and our hard tennis courts are open all year round. We also have the Met Police Football Club Stadium, Imber Court Boxing Club and Rivernook Archery.

The Pool offers swimming lessons for all and aqua aerobic classes. During the school holidays and half terms we run Fun Swim Session twice a day for 7-12 year olds. We also have an outside children’s playground for children up to the age of 9 years.

If you would like more information about any of our facilities whether for business or pleasure, please go to our website or give us a call on 0208 398 1267 x 4 and we will be happy to help you.
