The Spencer Club is a sports club in the London Borough of Wandsworth. It was founded in 1872 and has over 500 members. The club was named after Earl Spencer who was the great grand uncle of the late Diana, Princess of Wales. The club started off at Spencer Cricket Club in 1872, then moved to a site now bounded by Ellerton and Lyford Roads and finally came to its current location at Fieldview in 1903. There are plans to redevelop the club which will bring members of all the individual sports together. It is hoped to demolish the present club house and replace it with a new and improved one. There is currently a committee in place to help with the fundraising and planning for this project.
