The civil parish of Hursley is situated to the south-west of Winchester in Hampshire and is part of Winchester City Council’s administrative area.
Ampfield Parish, part of Test Valley District, adjoins to the west, and Chandler’s Ford, part of Eastleigh Borough, to the south.
The parish, famous for both its connections with Richard Cromwell and John Keble (of Keble College, Oxford fame), is centred on the historic downland village of Hursley, which lies roughly mid-way between Winchester and Romsey on the A3090. Sometimes known as “The Village of Chimneys” because of the tall highly decorated rubbed brick chimneys, which decorate many of the older buildings, the village is home to IBM (UK) Laboratories, who occupy Hursley Park, the “Big House” of the village.
The parish has a comparatively small population, with about 700 electors, but is one of the largest, by area, in Hampshire and includes the settlements of Pitt, Standon, Ladwell, Farley Chamberlayne and Slackstead.

Situated in the picturesque village of Hursley, just south of Winchester, we are a small, sociable club offering the opportunity to play on grass. We have two courts situated in the corner of the Hursley Recreation Ground, and our season runs from 1st May to 30th September. Also, each winter we join in with other tennis clubs to keep playing all year round, currently we have an arrangement with the Thornden Tennis Club in Chandlers Ford to play in mix-ins on Saturday afternoons on hard courts during the period October to April.

Hursley Allotment Association
A Very active small group of allotment holders, contact David at email@example.com if interested.
My Zumba class runs Thursdays at the John Keble School (hall) at 6.30pm. Zumba is dance/exercise to music from around the world and is, I think, the best form of exercise out there - medium impact, working your whole body and great fun. But by far the most important ingredient is the music -uplifting and just great! The class only started a few weeks ago and needs a little more support/attendance in order to continue so if you are reading this and love to dance, then please contact me - I take bookings in advance, though there will be no class over half term. Look forward to hearing from you, Sue.
