We don't charge for use of tennis and other courts but to hire the astroturf, football or cricket pitches please contact the parks team to book. When a tennis school is running this can also be booked through the parks team.

Parks staff are based near the play area or can be contacted by mobile on 07920 507629, alternatively you can call the Warden's hut on 01892 534472.

We are looking to help setup Friends groups for St John’s and Hawkenbury Recreation Grounds. If you would be interested in becoming a member of these new groups please contact the parks team.
