King’s Field is the largest recreational area in the town. Situated between the Old Generator Station and the Fire station, the area has an outdoor gym, play equipment for juniors and an enclosed playground area for toddlers. It is also the starting point for a picturesque ramble along Jubilee Walk, past the town’s allotments and out on to the marshes and the river wall.
Public lavatories are situated next to the Old Generator Station.
Aldeburgh Tennis Club
Aldeburgh Tennis Club is situated off Park Road. There are four championship standard courts. Two are floodlit and play is possible throughout the year. Season tickets are available for members but non-members and visitors are welcome to use the courts on a pay-as-you-play basis.
Full year membership rates are £50 for adults, students £25 (must be in full-time education) and juniors (7-14 years) £15.
Adult club sessions (members only) are on Thursday evening between 5pm and 8pm and Sunday morning between 10am and 12noon.
Junior coaching sessions are available between 9.00am and 9.45am (five-to-seven year olds) and 9.45am and 10.30am (eight-to-14-year olds) on Saturdays.
The courts are available for use by the public on a pay-and-play basis, at an hourly rate of £2.50 for adults and £1 for children per person. Payment can be made into the honesty box underneath the sign at the entrance to the courts. There is no booking and it is first come, first served, but play is limited to one hour when the courts are busy. Please avoid Thursdays 5-8pm and Sundays 10am-1pm as the Tennis Club has priority at these times.
The club holds tournaments, inter-club friendly matches and a number of social and fund raising events.
