How to Find Us

Bournemouth Sports Club, Chapel GateBH23 6BL

General Directions: Follow the signs for the Bournemouth International Airport. Chapel Gate is situated in East Parley on the left hand side of the roundabout on Parley Lane (B3073) to the west of the airport. Parley Lane follows the southern perimeter of the airport.

From the North and East:After Ringwood heading west (A31), take a left on to Bournemouth Spur Road (A338) following signs for Bournemouth International airport at all times. After approximately 4 miles take the turn to the T-junction on Christchurch Road (B3073). Turn right and head west, over the bridge which takes you over the spur road along which you have just come, through the traffic lights to a roundabout (approx. 1 mile). Turn left at the roundabout into Parley Lane (Bournemouth Sports Club will be seen with signs for the Airport). Follow Parley lane (B3073) leaving airport entrance on right hand side (approx. 1.5 miles). Continue along Parley Lane with airport on right hand side. At roundabout (approx. 2 miles) take exit to the right into Chapel Gate.

*Please note: There are significant roadworks into Bournemouth on the A338 from September 2018 to June 2019, expect delays if you’re travelling from this route and leave extra time for your journey.

One southbound lane will be closed from just north of the Blackwater Junction towards the Cooper Dean roundabout.

There will also be a 40mph temporary speed limit in place.

From The West:From say about Bere Regis (A35), it is less complicated to head for Wimborne on the A31. Take Wimborne bypass (A31) heading for Southampton (distant) and Ferndown (local) to the Hampreston roundabout to the east of the town and west of Ferndown. Take fifth exit heading for Longham and Bournemouth International Airport. Through roundabout (approx. 3 miles) onto second roundabout (approx. 200 yards) take left exit and then almost immediately right exit heading for Parley Cross-roads (approx.. 2 miles). Straight over at traffic lights into Parley Lane (B3073) to roundabout described in general directions above.


Please Note: for the 2018/2019 season some of our fixtures will be played at alternative venues.

Club Facilities

There are changing rooms and showers on-site (although forgive us they’re not the best!)

You may be required to leave a £10 refundable deposit behind the bar whilst in-use (to avoid lost keys) – but speak to the bar staff on arrival should you need further assistance.

Parking should be plentiful for your game, but every so often Bournemouth Rugby Club have a home game which clashes with our fixtures, so sometimes the car park (and club house) can get very busy. We’ve not known parking to be an issue for our guests however.
