For over 30 years, Chapel Gate has been at the heart of the local community.

Managed by BU Community Business, Chapel Gate regularly hosts local sports clubs and schools. And thanks to its 65-acres, a range of sports take place here, including football, rugby, hockey, cricket, squash, tennis and archery.

It’s also the main training and playing venue for TeamBU – the university’s performance sport teams – who compete in the British Universities and Colleges Sport (BUCS) league. 

While Chapel Gate is well-known for sporting events, including hosting Bournemouth 7s (a multi award-winning sport and music festival), it’s also a popular venue for corporate events, parties and weddings too.

Please note that dogs are not permitted at Chapel Gate, except for assistance dogs and guide dogs.
