In early 2020, in partnership with the Football Foundation, Football Association, Oadby & Wigston Council, Oadby Owls Football Club and Gartree High School, we will be opening a brand new full size, floodlit 3rd Generation Football Turf Pitch (FTP) at Beauchamp College. The new pitch will add to our existing sports facilities on site and will form a wider community sports offer moving forwards.
The pitch will be measured at 106m x 70m and will meet the highest specification requirements of FIFA meaning it can accommodate 11-a-side football at any level of proficiency. The pitch can also be split into halves or quarters to accommodate 5 and 7-a-side match play in addition to a variety of different training/sporting activities.
The facility will be open until 10pm seven days a week and will be available for hire outside of times pre-allocated to the curriculum use of both Beauchamp College and Gartree High School and our partner club, Oadby Owls Football Club.
The state of the art facility funded in majority by the Premier League & FA Facilities Fund (PL/FA:FF) is scheduled to open in the first quarter of 2020, at which time we will begin to take bookings from other sports clubs and the wider community.
Further information regarding bookings, pricing and terms and conditions will be made available closer to opening
