King George’s Playing Field Barford
Welcome to the fundraising and information site!
Transforming the historic sports and recreation field is a community led project, aiming to provide superior recreational and sporting facilities for the Warwickshire villages of Barford, Sherbourne and Wasperton.
King George's Field is a free to use sports facility for the residents of Barford, Sherbourne, and Wasperton. Construction of the fields was a community led project, and now offers the local community and school tennis, MUGA and netball facilities the year round.
Keep up to date with local news and sports events via our blog (link), and please get in touch if you are interesting in forming or joining a local club or team (link). It's best to book ahead if you are looking to use the courts or pitch, and you can do so here (link).
Thanks to all those involved in making our patch of Warwickshire a better place to live, learn and play.

Don't listen to us, listen to the children!
“Good opportunity to have a special place to visit anytime and have fun. There will be a lot of equipment to play on when children visit during the school day. I can go with my sister and play games and when the new pitches and courts are available we can play games such as football properly, following proper rules.”
“It will provide different activities and we will be able to use this equipment for free. Families will get together and have a picnic with plenty to do on the courts and other equipment. It will provide plenty of space for dog walkers.”
"Children won’t be bored and it will be a place to meet up with friends. We have really good tennis players at school and they will be able to practice their tennis nearer to where they live. As a family it will be really spacious with lot of things to do in a safe environment.”
The transformation of King George’s Playing Field would not even be thinkable without the hard work of the local community, generous sponsors and supporters and everyone who has got involved. Special thanks goes to all customers, volunteers, suppliers and staff of Barford Village Shop who have each made a difference to this project by supporting our fantastic local cause.
