Speaking of versatile, have you seen the facilities at Chelsea Academy? Boasting a large sports hall, an activities hall, two MUGAs (football pitches), a theatre and a conference room, Chelsea Academy is great for a small sporting community game and perfect for multi-track sporting events with games taking place at the same time.

Located in the heart of the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, Chelsea Academy is one of the most convenient and accessible venue option in its price range.

Isaac Newton Academy


The Main Hall at Isaac Newton Academy is one of our most affordable sports halls for hire. With a high ceiling and court markings, the hall is suitable for sports games as well as arts and performance events. The only downside is that it is a bit further out than our central London options.
