About

If you are looking for somewhere to hold your next party, host a club, carry out meetings or hold a sporting event, Belbroughton Recreation Centre has it all!

Covering just over 4 acres and set in the centre of the beautiful Worcestershire village of Belbroughton, BRC offers you a range of facilities for individual or combined hire.

The grounds have been developed over the years to incorporate a tennis club* with four immaculate floodlit courts, a children’s play area, a bright and airy sports hall, a meeting room, playing field and parking for 50 cars.

Many memories have been made here since it first opened back in 1920 when our lovely Recreation Centre was donated to Belbroughton villagers in memory of those fallen in the two world wars. As you can imagine, it is integral to the village and has been lovingly cared for and developed over the years for more people to enjoy.

Visit our facilities page for more information or get in touch here.

We look forward to hosting your event.

*Please note the tennis courts are managed separately. Please visit www.belbroughtontennis.co.uk

The History of the Recreation Centre

Belbroughton Recreation Ground was purchased by public subscription at the end of the First World War to provide a better future for new generations. It has beendeveloped and maintained by the work and generosity of the local community as a memorial to the fallen of two World Wars. First opened in 1920, it was, at one time, the site of Belbroughton Cricket Club, which is now situated on Hackmans Gate Lane.

The facilities have been enhanced over the years with the creation of a tennis club and the enlargement of the Sports Hall. It remains a thriving centre catering for a wide range of activities for all ages from youth football, tennis, skateboarding and kickboxing to indoor bowls, dog training clubs and parents & toddlers.

The Centre is a registered charity run by a group of trustees on a voluntary basis, all of whom still come from the local community. The Centre and grounds still rely heavily on the generosity of the public through fund raising events such as the annual village Scarecrow Weekend, of which the Centre is an integral part, and the subscriptions of the various user groups.

We look forward to sharing these wonderful facilities with you.
