Hemsworth Town Council's football facilities include a revolutionary 3G Astroturf training pitch with floodlighting, changing rooms, on-site parking, a full-sized grass pitch, a mini soccer pitch and street snooker.


Sandygate Football Facility

 The council has decided to help local football teams by giving them use of the facility. This will help local children stay active and develop their skills for their own progression and to benefit their team(s) generally. Unfortunately, this means that the ‘pay to play’ has ended. However, if you wish to get involved with local football, please contact the council (01977 617617) and we can put you in touch with the local football teams.

 3G Astroturf Training Pitch

Third generation (3G) astroturf is a rubber crumb and sand filled surface which offers a natural and realistic playing surface ideal in almost all weather conditions.
The pitch is floodlit making it an excellent facility for evening training sessions, and can be split into two to accommodate smaller training requirements.
