Grass pitches

  • Five 11-a-side football or rugby pitches
  • Two changing pavilions for the pitches
  • We also provide football goals and rugby posts

Grass pitches are available for non residential bookings and always subject to availability. Bookings can be made up to seven days in advance.

Our grass pitches are maintained to the highest standards which are comparable with surfaces used in professional leagues. Significant resource is invested on the maintenance and upkeep and therefore the pitches are closely monitored and inspected on a daily basis to check on condition, disease and availability for play.

Bookings for grass pitches are always provisional and may be cancelled at short notice – the decision to cancel bookings is taken to protect the parks and safeguard the medium to longer term availability of the facilities for all our users.

Records of rainfall and temperature are taken daily and are used to inform our planning and decision making processes. The period from November to April can prove particularly challenging in this regard.

We fully understand that not offering a 100% commitment on availability of pitches when booking can be problematic when planning fixtures, however, to protect the public investment we must insure that they are looked after correctly and are available for their intended purpose as often as possible.
