Haggerston Park has been named Outstanding London Sports Venue for June by booking platform MyLocalPitch.

The grassroots site is one of the borough’s best loved facilities, with access to football pitches, netball courts and tennis courts.

June saw a significant increase in grassroots tennis bookings at Haggerston Park, with the capital gripped by tennis fever.

Haggerston Park is run by GLL, who strive to make community services and spaces better for everyone through investing in time, energy and people.

June’s grassroots award, which is determined by MyLocalPitch users, was based on pitch quality, venue amenities and customer experience.

“I would like to thank everyone that voted for Haggerston Park as it wouldn’t be the great success that it is without our users,” said Ashley Bickers, the general manager at the Hackney Marshes Centre.

• MyLocalPitch is a platform for sports players who want to find and book sports venues in London. Users have the choice of over 1,000 venues for 16 featured sports.
