The country’s first ever invite only member’s club for people who play professional sport and those at the highest level in the business of sport, The London Sporting Club is a new way for people within the industry to network and make contacts in a relaxed, luxurious environment.

Situated within the Grade II listed mansion which is home to Morton’s in Berkeley Square, Mayfair, The London Sporting Club is a wholly unique experience as it automatically creates a wide–ranging sporting network based at a single venue, allowing people from all aspects of the industry to meet, mingle and connect in a single space.

From the club on the basement level to the cocktail bar and to the high class restaurants, the whole of Morton’s has a welcoming feeling of exclusivity that makes it the perfect social hub for people who want to socialise in different ways, strengthening bonds and making new contacts in a natural, relaxed way.
