If you’re feeling lazy from sitting inside all weekend cheering on Chelsea FC from the comfort of your couch, then perhaps you should get up and play some football instead. The K&C council offers 5 football pitch locations scattered throughout the borough for its residents to use and enjoy. These include Avondale Park, Emslie Horniman’s Pleasance, Holland Park, Kensington Memorial Park and St. Lukes Gardens.
In addition to tennis courts, Avondale Park offers a 5 or 7 a-side, floodlit, Astroturf football pitch. This can be booked by calling the council's Sports Booking office.
The Chelsea Sports Centre manages the football pitches at St. Luke's Gardens in addition to the tennis courts. St. Luke's Gardens offers two 5-a-side astroturf football pitches available for hire through the Chelsea Sports Centre.
Emslie Horniman's Pleasance is a great recreational space for residents in the borough. It proudly offers a 5 a-side tarmac football pitch, which is also floodlit for those winters when it gets dark early.
Holland Park provides ample space for playing a game of football in the borough. With grass football pitches for 5, 7 or 11-a-side games, Holland Park is the ace of spades for football pitch hire.
Kensington Memorial Park offers spacious grass football pitches for those wishing to play 5, 7 or 11 a-side football. 11-a-side football is available from September to the spring only.
