About

The Avenue playing fields are an open space provided by Petersfield Town Council and are situated next to The Avenue Pavilion. This is an ideal location for families and groups to play games, or enjoy a picnic. The tennis courts are available all year round. Adult & Junior online booking is available through our access booking system developed in partnership with the Lawn Tennis Association and JG Tennis. The courts are currently free of charge, but may be reviewed at any time by the Council. By booking the court, this will ensure that your court is available for you when you arrive and you can organise your game of tennis with family and friends.
