Top Football Pitches For Hire in Nottingham

Brimming with teams, pitches, successful academies and the Nottingham Forest F.C. playing in the Championship, Nottingham is most definitely a football city.  You may not have been picked by Marinakis to play for his team of mythical foresters at the magical forest, but there are plenty of other, more down to earth, venues in Nottingham that will gladly accept your muddy studs on their lawn.

Gresham Sports Park 

What's available: Eleven-a-side, Seven-a-side, Five-a-side

You’ll find a plethora of pitches at these grounds, situated in West Bridgford.  The 3G floodlit pitch is top of the range and can suit seven-side play.  In addition there are 6 full-sized pitches of mixed surfaces and a mini grass pitch.  To top off the experience, parking spaces are in abundance, the changing rooms are in excellent condition and most importantly there is a great clubhouse where players can grab a refreshing ribena et al. after the game.  Open 8am to 9pm, phone 0115 9148 553 for bookings.



Woodthorpe Grange Park 

What's available: Eleven-a-side

There is just the one pitch in this park, but it’s well worth the mention as it is full-sized and the grass is in good condition.  Whilst there are no changing rooms per se, there are toilets which can work as a substitute.  There is also a cafe, open til 4.15 each day offering light bites, healthy snacks  and hot and cold drinks.  The park can be found just north of the city, near to Arnold.  The park is open 8.30am to 8.30pm To book a pitch, phone 115 915 5555.



Forest Recreation Ground

What's available: Eleven-a-side, Seven-a-side

These grounds should be your first stop for a large game of footie.  Play on the full sized 3G surface or opt to hire it in half or quarters.  Alternatively there is a full sized sand pitch which is also available in sections.  The pitches are fully floodlit and there are clean changing rooms on site.  The pitches cost £100 for a full sized hire.



Harvey Hadden Sports Village

What's available: Eleven-a-side

Run by the Nottingham City Council, this is a great shout for both friendly and competitive games.  With 3 full-sized grass pitches, and 2 junior pitches, the village can accommodate a variety of team sizes.  If weather isn’t on your side, the sports centre also has a 10 court sports hall which can be used for training or casual games.  The entire centre, along with its pitches, underwent a £16million regeneration in 2015 so is in tip top shape.  Parking spaces, bike racks, lockers and changing facilities mean your visit will be hassle free, but if your game does end in stress and exhaustion, you can relax and refuel at the Bean Culture Cafe.
