Eleven courts, all floodlit, including 3 courts completely refurbished in July 2019 and now open. Courts must be booked onlineor via the tennis hut, in person or on the phone. Courts get very booked up on weekdays after 7pm, and the best way to get one is to get an Izz Card from Islington Council. You can buy them from (among other places) Highbury Pool, off Highbury Crescent, at the tube end of the Fields, and they are available even if you don't live in Islington.

Cancelling Courts and Credits
Please note, if you cancel on line you will see a note saying: You will not receive a refund if you cancel this booking. This is not correct.
If you can't make a court booking, are injured or unwell you can cancel your booking up to 24 hours in advance and receive a credit to book a court at a time in the future. Either speak to the hut or email Better/GLL using the Contact us form which is on a separate website here, selecting General Enquiry and providing details of your booking.
They will issue you with a credit within 24 hours of your email (sometimes 48 hours on weekends). You can also cancel by ringing the Islington Tennis Centre on: 020 3793 6880.
If you cannot make a court booking and it is less than 24 hours please still ensure you contact Better/GLL to cancel the court so someone else can use it. Tennis courts in the Borough of Islington are at a premium and Better/GLL very much appreciate your co-operation in making sure any courts you cancel get re-used by other keen tennis players.
**You can now cancel courts and get credits at the park keepers hut.**
Adults - £10/hour; Adult Izz Card Holder - £8.50
