We have 33 acres of first-class grass pitches (one of which is flood-lit) at the complex for outdoor sport.

The site also has a full-size floodlit 3G match pitch providing a FIFA/IRB approved all weather surface, including a stand and warm-up area. This state-of-the-art facility means sport can be sustained throughout the winter months.
