Finsbury Leisure Centre wins October’s Outstanding London Sports Venue Award

Finsbury Leisure Centre has won Playfinder’s ‘Outstanding London Sports Venue Award’ for the month of October.

The renowned grassroots venue is a Better facility run in partnership with Islington Council and has a fantastic selection of activities on offer for sports players. Sports lovers can get involved in both indoor and outdoor facilities, as well as making use of the changing rooms, showers and parking. There are four outdoor football pitches.

It’s one of the best indoor sports locations across the city for the colder months as it boasts four squash courts, a six-court multi-sports hall, dance studios and activity rooms.  

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

Playfinder is a platform for sports players who want to find and book sports venues in London. Users have the choice of over 7,000 venues across the city for 16 featured sports.
