A premier destination for top-quality sport

Croydon makes great use of being one of London’s greenest boroughs with an outstanding selection of golf courses to choose from.

They include The Addington, which commentating great Peter Allis named as having one of the best Par 3s in the country, with Croham Hurst, Addington Palace, Woodcote Park and Purley Downs among others which offer top-quality courses in beautiful settings.

Crystal Palace, the borough’s professional football team, have been in the Premier League for the past three seasons, and the Eagles have had an illustrious history with the likes of Ian Wright, Johnny Byrne, Kenny Sansom, Geoff Thomas and current manager Alan Pardew among the greats to have worn red and blue.

Croydon is looking to build on this heritage and was London’s only venue for the UK’s leading professional cycling team event, the Pearl Izumi Tour Series, which was held on the streets of the town centre in 2015 and 2016.
