Artificial pitches and courts
University Park is home to a number of artificial pitches and courts, catering for rugby, football, tennis, hockey, lacrosse, shinty and ultimate frisbee.
The full size, fully floodlit, rubbercrumb pitch consists of a FIFA and World Rugby standard surface and is used as training venue throughout the year for rugby, football, ultimate frisbee and lacrosse.
The pitch is also used as a venue for regular club fixtures, including a series of evening matches under the lights.
As one of the first producers in the synthetic turf industry, GreenFields has been awarded both the World Rugby Preferred Turf Producer and FIFA Preferred Producer status, giving confidence that the artificial pitch meets global standards for rugby and football and guarantees that the surface can be used for competitions, training and community activities.
Resurfaced in 2012, the sand-dressed pitch offers a training and match venue for a number of sports, including hockey and football.
The facility is fully floodlit and benefits from video analysis cameras.
With dedicated space for spectators the pitch is home to a number of community sports programmes and weekly sports leagues.
