Use of Recreation Ground
The football pitches on the pavilion side of the Recreation Ground are undergoing works set out in a 6-year plan of improvements using grant funding from the Football Association and are therefore out of use for the foreseeable future.
There are other areas available but, due to the large number of teams already using the grounds, space is very limited.
All facilities at the Recreation Ground have to be booked, through the Parish Clerk, well in advance.
The Recreation Ground is situated at the corner of Botley Road and Castle Lane and facilities comprise a sports pavilion, football pitches, tennis courts, skatepark, multi-use games area (MUGA) and children's playpark.
Planning permission has been granted for the installation of 2 further tennis courts, cricket cage, bowls area and updated MUGA.
