3G Pitch


At the Downs Leisure Centre we have a 3G Pitch available for hire to the community and groups.

The pitch offers one full size pitch or three five a side pitches. Floodlights are available at an additional charge but are subject to time restrictions.

Third Generation or 3G pitches as they are known, represent a new development in synthetic turf. The pitch itself looks like natural grass with similar playing characteristics, non-abrasive and can be used with rubber studs.

The open structure gives a firmer grip and provides for better ball control. Pushing off, running, stopping or tackling are all possible without additional risk of injury.

The floodlights and all weather capabilities of the pitch will make it ideal for training. The durability of the surface means that matches can be played concurrently one after the other and could provide a solution to all those matches that are postponed during wet weather.

It is not just wet weather the pitch in beneficial for, in summer grass pitches harden which increases the risk of injury whilst a 3G pitch retains its impact absorbency.

These pitches are the latest revolution in providing ‘all weather’ playing facilities with an artificial playing surface that feels like grass, looks like grass and plays like grass.
