Sports in our parks

Horsham District’s parks and countryside sites are vitally important at this time. However, social distancing, as set out by the Government, is absolutely crucial. We have therefore put in place some restrictions. The changing rooms at Horsham Park and Bennetts Field are closed and no further line marking of pitches will take place this season.

For additional updates on restrictions and closures across the district, please visit our Coronavirus: Parks, leisure and venues web page

We manage 18 football pitches in Horsham:

  • 5 full sized pitches (1 with changing facilities)
  • 13 smaller pitches to cater for junior football

Football pitch availability

The table below indicates whether each pitch is playable for the coming weekend. This page is updated each Friday lunchtime during the season, please check back each week.

Pitches are closed when weather conditions are such that playing on them could cause prolonged damage to the pitch for the remainder of the season.

If pitches are marked as open but the weather conditions deteriorate overnight or on the day of play, individual clubs are ultimately responsible for assessing pitch conditions on the day of play.

Please do not play on frozen of waterlogged pitches.

Status of pitches from 19.03.2020
