Friends of Sir Joseph Hood Memorial Playing Field


Things to Do

Five-a-Side, Tennis and Basketball

In one corner of the park are the four new, fully-equipped tennis courts which are available for hire (discounts available for Friends).

Nearby, the new FREE multisports area boasts a five-a-side pitch which is enclosed with seating for spectators. Juniors and teens alike can enjoy a game, spurred on by friends and family on the side-lines. Two basketball hoops mean this space can also be used as a basketball court.

Next to the five-a-side pitch is the main FREE basketball court. Two lower and two higher hoops allow the smallest to the tallest player to practice their shots. Between the hoops, the marked court provides ample play space.

Price per game of tennis:

Adult 5.40 | Junior 3.75

Members of the Friends can claim a massive 50% discount on these prices. If you have not yet become a member of the Friends, you why not join now? Membership is only £5 for a lifetime per family, so you will save a lot if you enjoy a game of tennis or two!
