Important Update: Due the Covid-19 Pandemic, we are not currently taking any bookings for lettings of our facilities. We will provide an update when 'normal' service resumes.


The Bainbridge Astro Turf

An excellent sand based, floodlit ’All Weather Sports Surface’ was completed using Lottery Funding. Users can either hire the whole pitch (large enough for league hockey matches) or one of the three five-a-side pitches (available from as little as £28 per hour, including floodlights). The pitch is dedicated to the memory of John Bainbridge, a former Head of Sport and Recreation, who died suddenly in November in 2004.

Recent hirers include: National Blood Donors, a ladies pre wedding social event, a Barber Shop choir, several amateur dramatics companies as well as large numbers of local football and hockey clubs.

​If you would like further details of facilities available and current prices please contact our ’Lettings team’ of Sarah Jones or Karen Fox on 0115 9729421. They will be pleased to provide any information required.
