Book a Sports Facility - (Pitchside or Courtside)

How to book a one-off or a series of bookings (not on a subscription basis)

Customers can now check availability and make bookings by using our Pitchbooking.com booking system using the button below. 

Courtside 
We are pleased to advise that Courtside will be operational from Monday 5 September, with all bookings in the system from this date being honoured moving forward and we look forward to welcoming users back.

Pitchside remains closed
Pitchside (3G and grass pitches) will remain closed for the foreseeable future. Following closer inspection of the facilities they appear to be in worse condition than we originally thought and are likely to remain closed for the Autumn/Winter period.

This is to ensure that the pitch does not deteriorate any further whilst we review the repair/upgrade options available along with the associated costs and timelines for procuring and undertaking any required works.

Due to the substantial nature of the work required and the unknown timeframe a decision has been made that all previously made bookings for Pitchside have been cancelled rather them being put on hold. (No funding has been taken from any September bookings and these bookings will not be held over – any new bookings will need to be re-made when the facility re-opens).

Any further updates on future booking availability will be made once we have more details on the likely nature and potential timescales.
