PlayFit is a social sports club for guys & girls aged 18 to 40, organising weekly sports games and social events. More about PlayFit...
PlayFit is based in Wimbledon, in south-west London.
We don't currently have any leagues or competitions. We run weekly social sports sessions for beginners, intermediate experienced players, and high level advanced players.
All of our sports games are mixed and are suitable for both men and women, except for netball which is for women only. Some of our mixed games do have more girls than guys, especially at beginner and intermediate levels.
Yes, definitely! We're always looking for beginners with good co-ordination and good team spirit. We have weekly beginners sessions for basketball, netball, volleyball, dodgeball,and football, so you can start learning and playing at any time. Click here to send us an instant message and we'll get you started asap!
We play by official UK rules, however as all of our sports games are social we may adjust some official rules to keep our games flowing and friendly. See our sports guides on the left menu for sports rules.
Yes we do provide some coaching for beginners at most of our beginner-level sports sessions. We also provide coaching at our intermediate level volleyball and basketball sessions.
We play at various sports centres around the Wimbledon area. We don't list them here to discourage people from just turning up. When you book a place we will send you a map & directions.
Please see our membership page. Each of our sports sessions has its own separate membership. If you want to play at 2 or more of our sports sessions then you can join them separately. Contact us to find out more.
No. We limit the number of players at each game, so non-members MUST book a place beforehand. Members have their places guaranteed every week and can just turn up.
This only applies to new players who want to try out once as a non-member. Yes, you're welcome to contact us at the last minute to see if there is a place available for you to play. Please note that most sports are usually full up a few days in advance, but you're welcome to try.
No you don't have to play every week. Once you join a sport session you can play at that session as often as you like. Most of our players make it to 3 or 4 games each month.
This only applies to new players who want to try out once as a non-member. You should contact us by clicking here and state which game you would like to play. You will receive an e-mail, usually within a few hours, confirming your place.
This only applies to non-members. To cancel your booking just let us know, giving as much notice as possible so that we can let someone else play.
We always start playing other sports when there is enough demand for them. If you would like to suggest a sport then contact us by clicking here stating which sport & when you would like to play.
PlayFit is a sports club for guys & girls aged 18 to 40. Currently we don't cater for those outside this age bracket.
You can contact PlayFit instantly by clicking here to send us a message. We usually receive your message within a few minutes and, as some surprised visitors have found, that we sometimes e-mail or phone you back before you have even left our Web site. We definitely respond to all messages within a couple of days. We don't list our contact details here because of the volume of enquiries we receive and to reduce junk; we offer the Contact Us form to process your enquiry quickly and efficiently. We always send our contact details to you when we reply. If you want to make a last-minute booking then please remember to include your mobile phone number so that we can contact you quickly if necessary. Please note that our phone does not transmit our number (CLI) so if we phone you it will show up as "Number Withheld" on your mobile phone.
Yes, we often go for a drink after sports games and every couple of weeks we have a big evening out. There are usually between 15 and 50 of us going to restaurants, cinemas, bars, pubs, clubs, day trips, parties, etc.
