Timber Sports Pavilions

Timber Sports Pavilions

Passmores has supplied high-quality prefabricated sports pavilions to clubs and organisations for well over 100 years. When our business first started, our main focus was building pavilions primarily for cricket, but we have since seen a surge in demand for other sports buildings, including tennis clubhouses, bowls clubhouses, and team changing rooms for football, rugby and hockey. We also provide changing room facilities for outdoor swimming pools for schools and private residences. 

Crafted in the UK by our team of specialists in Rochester, Kent, we combine premium-level design, energy-efficient joinery and latest timber treatment technology, to deliver a range of low maintenance, long-lasting timber pavilions. 

Our sports Club Range buildings are versatile and can also serve as local community and school sports pavilions, changing rooms and scout and guide huts. 

Our modular construction system will cater for the great majority of sporting requirements and our standard buildings meet the requirements of the National Lottery Sports Council, ECB and LTA. We can also give assistance on obtaining planning permission, provide drawings for Local Authority applications and advise on preparing the site for your new sports building. 

Pavilions are available in spans of 3.0m - 9.0m and come with 25 degree pitch roofs ready for felt or ready for slate.


The traditional appearance and longevity of our Club Range makes it the perfect choice. A timber building blends sympathetically with all environments and unlike brick, block or pre-cast construction, a Passmore Club Range will be inherently free from condensation and have natural insulation.

Virtually all the timber we use is sourced from the slow growing forests of Northern Sweden and our long term partnership with our FSC® Chain of Custody certified principle supplier Stenvalls Trä AB guarantees us consistently high quality and regularity of supply.

Many clubs tell us that membership increases after installation of a new pavilion and with literally hundreds of satisfied clubs throughout the UK you can feel confident that a Passmore building represents a sound investment.

Whether your requirement is simply for an additional changing room or if you are in the market for a complete pavilion, retail outlet or Scout HQ a Passmore Club Range Building offers the scope and flexibility to cater for all situations.

We deliver Club Range buildings throughout the UK and into mainland Europe. Our timber buildings enjoy a high degree of craftsmanship in our factory and are supplied 100% complete including detailed packing lists, component labelling, spare materials and assembly instructions.

Passmores offers pavilion erection, roofing, insulation and internal lining services within our delivery zones 1 and 2 (see delivery map) and we are delighted to undertake as much or as little of the site work as you require. Quite often we erect the basic shell of the building leaving club members to deal with other aspects.

Frequently Asked Questions

This will usually depend on the size, height and location of the proposed new building.

If you are positioning the building close to a boundary or in front of the building line of your home when viewed from the road, then planning consent is usually required.

If the building is to be behind the house, more than 2.0m from a boundary and provided the ridge height is less than 4.0m, then you may not need permission, assuming it is for non business use. Most garden sheds and chalets therefore do not need local authority permission.

However, if you live in a listed property or within a conservation area then planning permission is nearly always required.

The Government Planning Portal www.planningportal.gov.uk contains a wealth of additional information and includes an interactive guide covering most circumstances.

We have over 35 buildings on display in our showground village in Strood, Kent. As well as a full range of Garden Buildings we also display examples of single and double Garages, Carriage Houses, Open Barns, Equestrian buildings and a Club Range with verandah.
