football pitchThere are more small sided soccer pitches at Sportspark than anywhere else in East Anglia. You have a choice of pitch sizes and surfaces.

The four 5-a-side pitches are surrounded by rebound boards and netting. The surface is state of the art 3G synthetic grass filled with a rubber crumb. Plus we have three 7-a-side state of the art 3G synthetic grass pitches which were added to the Soccerpark in January 2011. Play on these pitches and you will be displaying skills you never knew you had! The six floodlit, 7-a-side sand dressed Astroturf pitches are the perfect setting for a game with your mates or a club training session. Entry to the pitches is through the main Sportspark entrance.

To maintain the surface of the pitches customers must observe the following restrictions regarding footwear:

  • Shoes must be clean
  • No spikes
  • No blades
  • No studs/moulds over 6mm
