The local community have access to hire our pitches on weeknights and weekends, where we have private bookings, club bookings and a 5-aside league up and running.

Along with the local community we have also had professional teams Altrincham Football Club, Northwich Victoria and Stockport County use our pitches for their weekly training sessions.
