Queen's Park is a 12 hectare park managed by the City of London and has been open to the public since 1887. It is a registered charity and offers is a fine example of a well-loved and hugely popular city park.
The overall aim of the City of London is to provide well looked-after surroundings and facilities to meet the needs of the park's many visitors, remaining true to the vision of its Victorian founders.
There is no advance booking system for the Queens Park tennis courts, so you can just pay and play on a first come first served basis (subject to court availability). Payment for tennis courts can be made at the tennis hut at the rear of the café.
As is common with many tennis courts in London parks, the busiest times tend to be weekend afternoons and early evenings, particularly in summer. It's also worth noting that Queens park closes at dusk all year round and there tennis courts are not floodlit.
There is also a pay and play pitch and putt golf course with club hire available too. This is especially popular during the summer. If that's enough about a spot of petanque on the designated petanque pitch, a rarity for London parks. Finally if sport isn't what you are after there is also an ornamental garden, a children's playground with paddling pool, a small zoo and a café.
There are six tennis courts available for hire which can all be booked via the tennis hut in the park
Simply turn up and pay and play in order to play on the pitch and putt golf course at Queens Park
There are two table tennis tables in Queens Park which are completely free to use but you will need to bring your own bat and balls
