A beautiful place to get fit, enjoy the outdoors and to meet friends old & new
If you have always wanted to play a sport or you just want to become more active then the new ground is for you.
As well as Abbots Bromley’s official Football, Cricket and Tennis Clubs we want everyone to use the grounds as much as possible, and here are just some of our suggestions – we really welcome your ideas.
Walkers, runners, cyclists, explorers and people who just want to play or support a team.
Schools – we encourage school children to use the appropriate sports pitches, walkways and cycle routes, helping them to start an active and healthy lifestyle in a safe, natural environment.
We also welcome Abbots Bromley’s Keep Fat Club and would love to see the following sorts of established or new clubs from the surrounding areas utilising the grounds:
Walking football for the over fifties
Outdoor Tai Chi

Making the Grounds Eco Friendly
In addition to creating a positive impact on the local community, we are also ensuring that the new facilities provide a boost to the local wildlife and eco-system.
Here are a few of the goals and steps that we are taking to ensure that this happens:
Solar Panels on the Pavilion
Trees & Shrub Planting
Bees & Insects Assisted to Thrive
Nesting Boxes for Birds & Bats
✓ Ponds to support wildlife
✓ Bat boxes in the pavilion roof
✓ Reed beds to provide a habitat for newts, fish, frogs and birds.
✓ Footpaths to be well maintained and interest/nature created along their route.
✓ Carbon neutral approach
✓ Balancing ponds
✓ Clean water run-offs from drainage facilities
✓ Promotion of natural history
✓ Enhanced for birds and other species
✓ Haven for wildlife
✓ Newts attracted to watercourses
✓ Ground Source Heating for the Pavillion
