Active recreation

The largest area of open space used for organised sports is in the southwestern corner of the town. There are grass football pitches at the Whitchurch C of E Primary School, Testbourne Community School and the Longmeadow Sports Centre (A).

The Cricket Club plays in traditional surroundings near to the parish church, and for the energetic young the skateboard park (B) near the primary school presents new challenges. Groups such as the Beavers, Cubs and Scouts use the scouts’ field for outdoor pursuits to the north of town in Bere Hill.
