Introduction

Fareham has 27 football pitches, nine cricket squares and two rugby pitches, one of which is floodlit. Please note that the floodlights are not available for hire by FBC.  Most of these sporting facilities have purpose-built changing and shower rooms as well as car parking. The pitches are available for booking through the Council in most cases or directly with the clubs.

Weekly pitch availability:

All pitches will be marked out and ready to use from Saturday 3rd September 2022, however please be mindful that although the pitches have been renovated they are extremely dry and dusty, they are not at a standard we would of liked due to the dry heat we have experienced over the past months.
