About Bagshot Playing Fields Association

The Bagshot Playing Fields Association is a registered Charity  (no 274653) and was formed in 1978 by a committee of local residents.  The Objective of the Association is to:-

“Promote the benefit of the inhabitants of the village of Bagshot by providing facilities in the interests of social welfare for recreation and leisure-time occupation”

We pride ourselves on the top class facilities we provide and the services we offer in planning and putting on events.

Bagshot Tennis Club is affiliated to the BPFA.  The pavilion is also hired to clubs for the younger generation along with adult classes, that include Guides, BeFiit, Lorna Timms Dance, Ballet Fit, Dance4ever, Tiny Tots Music Group, Music and Dance, and many more.  The Pavilion hall is also let out for private functions. The committee is responsible for the maintenance of the facilities including the grounds. 

 

 History

The playing fields are located just outside the pretty village of Bagshot in Surrey.  In the past Bagshot served as an important staging post between London Southampton and the West Country. Evidence of this can be seen with the old mile stones and inns dotted along the A30 (London Road) that runs through the village.  Bagshot was also a well known hunting ground for highwaymen, the most famous being William Davies, who always paid his debts in gold, but eventually met his fate at the hangman’s noose.

Bagshot is famous for its cosy, traditional pubs and these have proved popular with wedding guests and, most importantly, the grooms, who often pop in for a quick drink (or two) before their big day! You may even bump into Prince Edward, the Earl of Wessex, as he lives nearby in Bagshot Park. Any rugby fans might like to know that the England Rugby team have their training base at the beautiful Pennyhill Park and Country Club, which backs onto the BPFA grounds.
