We popped along to check out TRY’s new training room here at Imber. A big thanks to Stadium Support for their hard work in transforming this from a changing room to this beautiful base for Train Right for You. Roshan-Ara’s work includes rehab and injury prevention, from assessment right through to a tailored training plan for improved running and movement so you can be the athlete you never thought you could. We are very happy to have Roshan-Ara here with us, and the work she does is fantastic, whether it be improving on a runner’s style to increase speed or getting novices on the right track.
It was a great week for our Pool Manager Phill last week, when he and three others were chosen to recreate the famous Beatles album cover, Abbey Road, to mark its 50th anniversary. As an avid fan and convincing Beatle and Lennon tribute, Phill is happy to say the least, and we’re proud to call him ours. You can see full articles about the event here-
As well as at other news outlets.

You might have heard we’ve joined up with the folks at Red Church Brewery, and have been looking forward to selling their beers. We couldn’t be happier, and would like to congratulate them for cleaning up at the World Beer Awards recently. One win would be great, but they not only won Silver for their Old Ford Export Stout, and not just Gold for their Bethnal Pale Ale in their respective categories, but were also awarded Overall Winner in the UK Lager category! We’re proud to say, we stock their products and hope you look forward to sampling them!
Yes we are in our 100th year and we will be celebrating this Saturday from 2pm to 6pm with our Centenary Party – all our welcome and there will be lots for everyone to enjoy. Even if you are not a member of our Club please feel free to come down and enjoy the afternoon’s celebration with us.
As it is our Centenary lets have a little look back before we party on Saturday…..
Imber Court is a Club with a police heritage which we are proud of. You will notice this as you use the Club House, the facilities and grounds as there are many artifacts, pictures etc reminding us of the heritage. The club is also home to the Metropolitan Police Rugby, Football, Cricket and Bowls Clubs.
In respect of our history the land was purchased in 1919 with the original purpose of providing a training centre for the Metropolitan Police Mounted Branch which is still here (Police Horses will be part of our celebration this Saturday). However not all the land was required and in the early 1920’s much of the land and meadows were turned into playing surfaces with monies that police officers donated themselves. A donation from The National Police Fund (Charity) also paid for the building of the main clubhouse.
The Club was ‘officially’ opened on 11th June 1929 by H.R.H. Prince George and has operated as a sports and recreation facility since then serving not only Police Officers and their families but also many families from our local community (at our last count this numbered over 600 local residents).
Over the intervening years the Club has operated (as it still does today) as a non-profit making facility. This means any profits made (through our commercial activities) are always ploughed back into the Club, enhancing the facilities for all its users.
Becoming a member at Imber Court is a straight forward process and if you are interested pop in and talk to our staff, visit our website www.imbercourt.com , email Julie.Duke@imbercourt.com or ring the office on 0208 398 1267 x 4 and ask for Julie our membership secretary.
We’re so excited for the Happy Days festival that we’re going to start the party a little early. With a Pimms and Prosecco bar out in our garden. The greatest hits of Happy Days will be playing to get you in the mood, not that it takes much persuasion. We’ll also be selling regular drinks in the bar. It promises to be a fantastic Bank Holiday weekend.

Well done all!
For us regular users of Imber we are not used to seeing Lauren sitting in the Office Manager’s chair. She is normally the very welcoming face of our Club working in our bars , restaurant and at functions.
Lauren is seeking a career in Events Management and it is clear already to all those that know her that she will be exceptional at it. In building her knowledge and expertise Lauren is taking advantage this week of the opportunities available at Imber for work experience and looks like she is thoroughly enjoying it.
