Sports Clubs and Facilities
  • Basketball off top end of Brick Lane
  • Every Sunday, around 3 o'clock, there's an open-to-all-comers game of football at the northern end of London Fields, next to the old lido. For people who like a good game but can't be arsed with the week-in-week-out commitment of joining a proper team.
  • Swimming at York Hall, Old Ford Rd E2 Football pitches, tennis in Victoria park,E8
  • Kings Hall - run-down but still stylish, and not intimidating like some pools. A barely competent swimmer like myself is the fastest thing there!
