Highbury Fields kicks off 2020 with a win, bringing Playfinder’s Outstanding Facility Award to Islington

Highbury Fields kick start their 2020 campaign by winning Playfinder’s Outstanding Facility Award for January. The venue plays a vital part in offering access to some of London’s best sports facilities to their community, offering up two floodlit 3G 7-a-side pitches allowing users to keep active all year round.

It’s not just the superb football pitches that attract people to the venue, but there is also a very high demand for their fantastic tennis and netball courts.
