Another great venue in Islington is Finsbury Park with a whole host of unique sporting arenas. Within this includes an outdoor gym and a 400m athletics track. The unique part about this is that in the centre of the athletics track is one of the only American Football pitches available in London.

If you wish to stick to the more traditional English sports, Finsbury Park also houses 7 tennis courts, all of which you’re able to book online through our website. There are also two mini tennis courts where tennis courses are run for children from a young age upwards.
