Sports Pitches

Sports pitches are available throughout Edinburgh and we welcome a variety of team sports on a regular slot or for an occasional game.  We have artificial and grass surface pitches available for football, rugby, cricket, baseball, hockey and Gaelic or American football. Venues provide on-site changing facilities (except Morgan Playing Field).

Sports pitches are managed by us on behalf of the City of Edinburgh Council (CEC) and with their support for pitch maintenance. 

Many of our venues are multi use and pitch use changes from football in the winter to the likes of cricket, touch rugby in summer.



Pitch updates are issued on a Friday for weekend (grass) pitch bookings for football, rugby & cricket.

The decision on playability of grass pitches is made by City of Edinburgh Council (CEC) ground maintenance team.

The availability of grass pitches can be limited in the summer months when cricket is in season. Once the season is finished the pitches are not relined by CEC.





Pitches can be booked at any time for a regular weekly slot, club training sessions or occasional play however we normally require 48 hours notice to arrange site staff.

Extended Lets are available for a full season (August to May). Generally pitches are allocated to league associations who, in turn, allocate these pitches to their teams on a home and away basis.
