3G Astro Turf Pitch

In October 2014 Bath & North East Somerset opened the 3rd generation astroturf pitch at Odd Down.  The floodlit pitch was part funded by the RFU and The FA and is available for hire for enthusiasts of all abilities.  The 3G can be used as a whole or divided into pitches for:

  • 9-a-side Football

  • 5-a-side Football
  • 11-a-side Football
  • Rugby Matches

The pitch is suitable for training, matches, courses and birthday parties

You can turn up and Just Play for only £1 (this is only available when the pitch isn't being hired out by clubs - please call to find out availability)

*Please wear appropriate footwear (no blades allowed)

Grass Pitches

Odd Down Sports Ground has a large area of grass pitches that can be used for a multitude of sporting activities. From Football, Cricket to Rugby.

Football - We have recently invested in our Grass Football Pitches to bring them in line with FA Standards and have since hosted several FA Youth Events.

With such a large area of pitches it allows us to have the freedom and flexibility to rotate our pitches whenever there is a need to rest certain areas of the playing fields or to cater for specific requirements.

Pitches we can offer are as below…

11 vs 11 Football Pitches

11 vs 11 ¾ Football Pitch

9 vs 9 Football Pitch

7 vs 7 Football Pitch

5 vs 5 Football Pitch

Pitches can be hired on a casual basis or on a regular block booking basis which means you can secure a pitch all season long. For more information on this please Contact Us

Want to play all season? We also have a full size 3G Astro Turf which is also available for hire, to find out more Click Here

Rugby - There is 1 Grass Rugby Pitch with fixed posts.

Pitches can be hired on a casual basis or on a regular block booking basis which means you can secure the pitch all season long.

Cricket - Odd Down Sports Ground boasts, in total, 3 cricket pitches.

There is one cricket square which also has an artificial wicket as well as 2 other artificial wickets at opposing ends of the fields.

These pitches are part of a huge undertaking by the council aiming to bring them up to standard with the best pitches in the county.

Pitches can be hired on a casual basis or on a regular block booking basis which means you can secure the pitch all season long.



Cycle Track

The 1.5km Closed Road Cycling Circuit at Odd Down Playing Fields opened in April 2013 enabling enthusiasts to learn, train and enjoy cycling without having to negotiate Bath’s busy roads.

The circuit was built by Bath and North East Somerset Council thanks to a £600,000 grant from British Cycling, and is one of only 17 specific closed road cycling circuits in England.

Odd Down Cycling Circuit has been specifically designed to introduce and develop opportunities for cyclists to train at all levels and whilst access to the cycle circuit can be through supervised sessions and club sessions, there is also the possibility to turn up and ride depending on availability.

Turn up and just cycle for £1. Bike hire is available for a small fee. Please check on our timetable or call 01225 300420 if you would like to know when the Cycle Circuit is free.
