Running between the Curlew pub in Christchurch Road and West Parley Memorial Hall is Stocks Lane. At the end is a car park and clubhouse. To the left is a recreation area and new children's playground and to the right is a beautiful, huge level field edged with mature trees. This is home to Parley Sports Cricket & Football Club. If you do know Parley Sports, it is probably because a member of your family plays in one of the ten football teams or in one of the club's twenty-four or so cricket teams. You will also know that it offers much more than a clubhouse, which incidentally was opened by the famous cricket commentator John Arlott.

Parley Sports has excellent football and cricket pitches served by recently refurbished changing facilities; there is a bar with a varied menu offering evening meals plus Saturday morning breakfast; a spacious sports bar, function hall and pool room.

The age range of players is eight to veteran so it almost goes without saying that the club is child and family friendly. There's a weekly pool league, ladies' and men's darts leagues, plus a quiz night every other week and a winter meat draw.

All-in-all Parley Country Club offers local people an attractive sports and social venue. And you do not have to be an active player to join. Sit with a pint of real ale and a plate of food and soak up the atmosphere of your favourite sport on Sky TV. For the real thing, look out of the window. Cricket cup and league tournaments take place nearly every weekend and mid-week throughout the summer. In the colder months, football with Parley Sport's teams vying in the Dorset Premier League, Bournemouth Youth Leagues and Bournemouth Premier League - will get the adrenaline going. Or you may just want to bring the family for a relaxing meal and enjoy the pleasant surroundings.
