Christchurch Park has many fine and well-maintained sports and leisure facilities, the locations of which you can find on our interactive Park Map (under the Park menu).  Alternatively, from the same menu, choose "More to see", which will allow you to click directly on the venue you want to find on the map.


The Tennis Courts, located in the Lower Arboretum, have  been re-sufaced under a £142,500 grant from the Lawn Tennis Association, so we now have five extremely fine courts to play on. There will be no charge for casual play, and The Friends have been assured that at least two courts will be available for the public at all times, even when Ipswich Sports Club is delivering its programme of coaching. This coaching programme is a co-operative venture between Ipswich Sports Club and Ipswich Borough Council. Some of the sessions will be free, some charged. To find out more, visit
