Selsey's Recreation Ground

What's Here

Open all year round; home to the Selsey Cricket Club; the ground is the perfect spot during the season to sit with a picnic and enjoy the thwack of leather on willow while the game is played before you. If you are not a fan, then simply bring a deckchair, blanket and book – perhaps borrowed from the library across the road – and while away the time in the sun.

If you feel a bit more energetic, the Recreation Ground is home to various pieces of static fitness equipment including a cross trainer, cycle bike and walker. 

An oasis of green space within the town centre. The Recreation Ground can be found behind Selsey Medical Centre and opposite The Academy Selsey. 
Visitors from across the region come to this ground for popular annual events including:

• Selsey’s Beer & Rounders event
• Selsey All Stars Cricket Exhibition Matches
• Selsey’s Annual Classic Car Show 
• Burnett’s Family Funfair bringing traditional rides such as dodgems and a waltzer every August.
• Car Boot Sales
