Information for applicants

Hiring outdoor sport pitches for competition purposes.

Outdoor sports pitches can be hired for competition purposes. However, availability will depend on prior commitments for the pitch in question. Our advice is to make your enquiries as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.

Paying for the hire of pitches

Once an outdoor pitch has been booking has been agreed you will be sent an invoice, which can be paid by cheque or postal order. We would like to remind you that it is not advisable to send cash through the postal system.

Weekend pitch condition hotline - 01268 208218

We operate a "weekend pitch condition hotline", which is updated every Friday afternoon (around 2.30pm), giving the latest information on outdoor pitch conditions for the forthcoming weekend.

The hotline will also provide the latest pitch information for other sports during adverse weather conditions.
