Fairfield Community Sports Hub
Fairfield Community Sports Hub was established in 2008 due to the demand for a multi-sports facility for the local community and surrounding areas. The upgrading and growth of facilities has been helped by grants, fundraising events, committee members, and local community groups. The ethos of the hub is to be the catalyst in bringing back a sense of pride, enthusiasm and connectivity to the community through sport and other recreational activities for both youths and adults alike.
The hub promotes active participation in sport, exercise and physical activity for as many people as possible in the community while aiming to create healthy members of the community who are able to cope with the stresses of daily life. The hub have a hard-working committee who have developed the hub further with the introduction of disability football, girls football and walking football. Fairfield have developed close links with Active Schools enabling the hub to deliver football in the local schools and run holiday programmes.
The hub’s facilities currently consist of an 11 a side grass pitch at Fairfield Park, a 7 a side astroturf pitch, Drumgieth Pavilion and Fairfield Sports & Leisure Club. Drumgieth Pavilion includes a gym studio which is used to deliver activities including karate and fitness classes for the community. In addition, the pavilion includes a community café and changing facilities.
