CLUBS & ORGANISATIONS

The following facilities are aided by Ascot Racecourse for local residents and organisations to enjoy:

Ascot Racecourse works closely with the Society for the Protection of Ascot and Environs (SPAE) a part charitable organisation who have operated as a watchdog for the protection of Ascot and the local area for the last 40 years.

Royal Ascot Cricket Club was formed on the Heath in 1883 and Ascot have continued to allow the club, which caters for colts and seniors, to occupy the same location for the benefit of the local community.

Ascot United Football Club gained permission from Ascot in 1968 to establish a club on racecourse land for the benefit of young people. The racecourse continues to support the club and in 1990 backed the building of a new clubhouse. The club is now one of the largest in the country with over 750 registered players.

The Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead operate the Ascot Durning Library and the Ascot Hall for local community hire from within racecourse owned premises. Activities which have operated from these premises include a youth club, yoga classes and live painting classes.

The Royal Ascot Golf Club was founded in 1887 and was originally on the Heath until redevelopment of the racecourse necessitated a move to the old Ascot Farm location off the Winkfield Road. Ascot Racecourse built the course for members to enjoy.
