Book one of our artificial surfaces

Our artificial pitches are a great option for a range of activities and are available for booking for students, staff and the local community. 

Our 3G artificial pitches at David Ross Sports Village and Jubilee Sports Centre are full-size pitches – they offer one 11-a-side football pitch or can be split into three 7-a-side football pitches. Our 3G at Sutton Bonington offers one 7-a-side pitch which can be split into 2 5-a-side pitches.

All are ideal for football, but can be used for a range of activities including multi-sports, sports days, rugby, lacrosse (David Ross and Jubilee only) and American Football (David Ross only).

Our Sand Dressed Pitch at David Ross is designed for hockey, but is also a fantastic all-purpose surface. 

All pitches are floodlit and can be booked any time during our opening hours, depending on availability. 

Don’t forget, if you are booking an official fixture, then a minimum of a 2-hour booking is required.
