The jewel in our crown is our £700,000 third generation Astroturf, one of the very first dual purpose facilities (for football and rugby) to be built in the UK. The pitch is designed for training and divides into three seven a side pitches, and is also available for competitive games. Our contribution to the development of football in the region was rated as 'outstanding' in a recent Football Foundation report.
The pitch was fully relaid and refurbished in October 2018, and provides a world class facility for the community to use. It is registered on both The FA and RFU approved pitch register.
Grass Football and Rugby Pitches
Kepier has four grass football pitches, one each suitable for U13 and U15 age groups and two full size pitches. We also have a full size grass rugby pitch. These are available for season long hire from early August to late April. These pitches are renowned as some of the best for amateur football in the region, with excellent drainage and a first class maintenance regime to ensure a quality playing surface.
The Gymnasium is fully air conditioned, with a range of cardiovascular and free standing weights equipment. With no joining fee, no long term commitment and a low monthly membership fee, this is the ideal way to improve your fitness levels. Our community staff will be happy to show you around and answer any questions you may have. If you are looking to improve your general fitness levels, lose weight or train for a particular event, then we can help!
