Henlow is fortunate enough to provide a wide range of sporting facilities.
Two pitches are available to hire. They can be booked online or by contacting the Clerk on 01462 811800
- The smaller ‘Colts’ pitch is located in the Pit recreation ground and is suitable for under 14’s
- The full size pitch in Henlow Park includes the use of the Football Association standard changing rooms in the Pavilion.
Both pitches are maintained to a high standard by our own groundsman. Contact details here.
The cricket pitch is located in Henlow Park and is exclusively let to Henlow Cricket Club. The pitch is not generally for hire, however if you would like to enquire about its use please contact Henlow CC at http://henlow.play-cricket.com. It benefits from being adjacent to the Pavilion for changing facilities. The hall and upstairs room are available to be used for cricket teas with the balcony overlooking the pitch. Contact Details Here There are practice nets at the park which are available for anyone to use and are particularly popular with both young and adult cricketers and is well used particularly in the summer evenings. There is no need to book, just turn up and play. Please note that the cricket clubs use the practice nets and therefore sometimes they are unavailable.
The bowling green is owned by the parish council and lease to Henlow Park Bowls Club. The high standard of the playing surface is a credit to the bowls club, who are responsible for its maintenance. Contact Details Here
Henlow Park Bowls Club was formed in 1930 for the enjoyment of the game of Lawn Bowls. Henlow village supports a very successful club of all abilities. The Club is affiliated to World Bowls Ltd. It is run by a committee elected annually by the membership. We have men’s and ladies leagues throughout the season offering competitive bowling in leagues offering a variance of skill and ability. There are weekend ladies and men’s matches which are more akin to the social aspect with a friendly competition thrown in. For the retired amongst us we have regular midweek friendly matches.Like all sporting clubs we have our own Club competitions which individuals can enter if they so wish. County and International competitions are also available to Club members
Membership of Henlow Park Bowls Club is available to all; beginners as well as established bowlers. You can even come along to “have a go” and make up your mind later. You do not need any special clothing but we do insist upon flat soled (no heel) shoes which helps to protect the grassed surface.
