Sports pitch and facility hire

There are numerous sports pitches throughout Calderdale available for hire for football and rugby.

(Note: this excludes pitches attached to Sports Centres, private land and most school sites).

Booking a pitch

Most pitches are booked on a seasonal basis with limited capacity for one-off matches. You can get more information on locations, venue details, availability and hire charges by contacting us.

Following your enquiry and if we can meet your request, we will send you an application form to complete / return.

For "one off" bookings, payment is required in advance of the event. You can pay by cheque or postal order, but are advised not to send cash through the postal system. For seasonal bookings, an invoice is issued for the total sum due. Payments are then made through the Council's Finance Section.
