Astro and grass pitches at Purbeck Sports Centre
Sports centre closed
The sports centre will be closed from the 5 November 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Boasting some of the best outdoor facilities in Purbeck we have a full sized artificial grass pitch used for football and hockey, a rugby pitch, two full sized football pitches and a cricket square, all with use of our indoor changing rooms and use of the free car park.
Astro Football/Hockey Pitch
The astro pitch can be used as a full size football/ hockey pitch, or can be divided into 3 mini pitches for small-sided games or training. The pitch can be hired by groups or teams by the hour. Ideal for regular training sessions, tournaments or just a kick about with a group of mates.
There is a very successful Dorset County Football Association affiliated adult 6-a-side football league on Tuesday evenings (there are currently a couple of spare places for new teams), with Premier, Championship and League One divisions. Please contact Bob Kitley of Soccer Solutions for further information.
