Community Sports Centre Opening Hours:
Monday - Friday: 4.30pm-10pm (3G pitch open unitl 9pm)
Our 3G football pitch was opened in December 2009. The new Astroturf is equivalent in size to a normal full-size football pitch, is fully floodlit and available for use all year round. The pitch is marked for both football and hockey. Two sizes of playing area are available for football hire, providing the ideal size training area depending upon the club’s requirements: full pitch or one-third pitch. Third generation synthetic turf (3G) is the latest development of this type of facility. The surface has a longer pile to the carpet and is filled with granulated rubber making it ideal for pitch-based sports such as Rugby, Hockey and Football. It offers a more natural ball bounce than the previous surfaces and has playing characteristics much more like natural pitches.
The Sports Hall is the size of four badminton courts and is marked for badminton, basketball, netball, 5-a-side football and tennis. The hall can also be used for other sports such as trampolining, handball, table tennis and volleyball. We also have two indoor cricket lanes with nets to provide indoor practice for cricket. Posts, nets and equipment for 5-a-side football, basketball, badminton, netball and cricket can also be provided on request.
The studio is a decent size to accommodate exercise classes and can cater for at least 50 participants per session. The room has a sprung floor, mirrors and a sound system. It is popularly used for different dance activities but also provides a great space for martial arts and table tennis. The studio has two storage rooms should any equipment be required to be stored on site.
The classroom is large in size and is able to sit over 30 people at a time. Access to TV, whiteboard, projector and flipcharts is available on request. The room regularly hosts sports coaching courses and is a good meeting room.
