Built in 1967, Metropolitan is a purpose built members sports club offering sporting, leisure and social facilities to all members of the community. Also at Metropolitan we aim to encourage the community to use all the facilities we have to offer. Our sports club was constructed on land bought from the Royal Masonic School for Boys, currently the American University building, which unfortunately closed in 1977 due to declining numbers. In the early days of the sports club, Cadets were used to hunt for and remove flints by hand from the playing fields. This was done to avoid injuries to players of both rugby and football.
Today Metropolitan has some of the best sporting facilities and grounds in the county, hosting a wide variety of individuals and sports teams from across Hertfordshire and North London, including cricket, football, and bowls. The club also hosts a number of social events from Cabaret to Comedy Nights, Quiz Nights to Live Music, and Wedding Functions to Specialist Dine Nights. For 41 years the club has entertained members, their friends and family and with the highly regarded reputation it has gained, will continue for another 41 years.
The club currently has four fully appointed function rooms, catering for a wide variety of occasions. From wedding receptions, birthday parties, conferences and retirement functions, to large-scale black tie Summer Balls, Bushey has a function room to suit at great value for money. Three of our functions rooms are also fully wedding licensed so you can have your special day entirely at The Club. For more information on holding a function or using our conference facilities, our professionally trained office staff would be more than happy to help.
The Sports Club also offers a fantastic variety of sporting facilities, which are said to be some of the best in Hertfordshire. These include 3 Cricket Pitches, 5 Football Pitches, a 6 Rink County Standard Bowls Green, 5 All Weather Tennis Courts and a Netball/Basketball Court.
Most facilities within the club are available for hire. For enquiries into hiring any of the facilities please contact the main office who will be happy to talk you through bookings and prices.
