Urban Rec - Newcastle's Sport and Social Club

Clubhouse - Lambton Park Hotel

February 10, 2021 - 4 months ago

We are delighted to announce that Lambton Park Hotel are our local clubhose for our two outdoor leagues Field Multisport and Touch Football.

Both these sports are played at Lambton Park and the hotel is just a quick stroll across the road. It’s the perfect place to grab a drink or dinner after your teams game. You can sit in the beer garden looking over the park or take yourself  inside and enjoy the tastefully decorated pub.

When you sign up as a member with Lambton Park Hotel, make sure you mention you are with Urban Rec. 10% of every purchase on dirnks and food you make will go back onto your Lambton Park membership card and you can use the money at the end of the season to get yourself a cheap meal. How good!

Be sure to organise a few team debriefs after your game this season.

If you play in one of our leaguyes and are not too sure where the clubhouse is for you guys. Here is a list of all our clubhouses.
