Football club


Britain is renowned for football. Across the capital there are many places to watch an exciting international game such as Wembley stadium. Many local matches are played at Stanford Bridge football ground, Chelsea, close to Burlington school or even Fulham football club.


Tennis club


There are many public tennis courts where you can have a game of tennis. If you are here in June you may be lucky to buy tickets for Wimbledon.
