Facilities for Hire

Our community facilities are now available to hire, these include:

4G Pitch

Multi Use Games Area

Dance Studio


Sports Hall

Outdoor Grass Pitches


Music Rooms



4G Pitch

The 4G pitch is an artificial grass surface that does an admirable job of remaining soft, avoiding pitch freeze and providing a surface capable of year round usage. More specifically,each artificial grass fibre on the 4G pitch has a spine that allows the fibre to return to an upright position after being stepped upon, allowing the pitch to positively cushion subsequent impacts and maintain the feel of natural grass.

FIFA has given 4G pitch technology a 2* rating, the highest standard for artificial surfaces in soccer.

The FIFA RECOMMENDED 2 STAR standard will be the relevant quality standard for the use of football turf in UEFA's top competitions as the European Championship, the UEFA Champions League and the UEFA Cup.

If it's good enough for the Champions League, then it is good enough for us.
