Sports pitches and courts

Sports pitches and courts

From 1 April 2024 the cost of hiring our sports pitches and courts has increased.  We're also changing the discount on block bookings.  If you're booking for a school, association, charity or club, or an organisation representing affiliated clubs, you will get a 10% discount on bookings of 10 or more sessions of the same activity.  We will also be updating our terms and conditions.


We have over  45 pitches and courts available for hire at competitive prices.

To enquire about our pitch facilities, or to check availability, please email parks@guildford.gov.uk.
