The PTA jointly funded with Sport England the construction of our superb floodlit facility for George Abbot School which opened in September 2013. As can be seen in the photo above the pitch is located adjacent to the Sports Centre and benefits the School’s students and provides a much-needed facility for local community clubs. 


The All Weather Pitch has floodlighting which can be used up to 21:00 hours (Monday to Friday only).  The facility was constructed to meet the needs of football (FIFA 1 Star), lacrosse and hockey training (FIH Performance standard).  It is available for community use from 17:00 to 21:00 on weekdays and at weekends from 09:00 to 18:00.


During the 2015/16 season community users comprised a number of local football clubs including Guildford Saints, Hambledon FC and Planet Soccer. Guildfordian’s Rugby Club also hire the facility for training.

Monday 18:00 -19:00 & 19:00 -20:00
