The London Borough of Merton is home to the All England Tennis Club, where the Wimbledon Tennis Championships are held each year.

Wimbledon Football Club was formed to represent the local area in the Football League. The Club currently plays at Kingsmeadow Stadium but there is a long-term aim to build a new stadium within the London Borough of Merton. The Borough also has four non-league football clubs: Colliers Wood United, Raynes Park Vale, Tooting and Mitcham United and Merton Forest.

Merton is also home to the Wimbledon Park Watersports Centre, offering a range of activities, including sailing, climbing, orienteering and paddleboarding. www.merton.gov.uk/leisure/sport/facilities/wimbledonparkwatersports.htm
