The council will decide which sport pitches are playable.

Football and Rugby Season 2018/2019

We perform regular pitch inspections to make sure they are safe enough to play on. This will be done on a pitch-to-pitch basis.

Pitch inspections take place between 24 and 48 hours before Saturday kick-off times.

We will post the results of pitch inspections on this page by 4pm every Friday throughout the season.

Please note: All decisions are final.

Pitches declared OFF:

  • They have been declared unfit for play
  • No fixtures or training is permitted until further notice
  • Please inform your opponents and league of the postponement

Please note: You may lose your public liability insurance if you ignore this decision.

Pitches declared ON:

  • They are fit to play on
  • Match officials must conduct a pitch inspection before play can start
  • The pitch must be passed fit to play by match officials

Pitch strategy 2015 to 2031

Supply and Demand Study

We are studying the supply of and demand for playing pitches, including artificial grass pitches, in our area. This study will update the 2015-2031 Pitch Strategy and will help to improve planning for and investment in football, cricket, rugby, hockey, tennis and bowls until 2036. 

The National Governing Bodies of Sport fully support this work and are providing assistance to make sure that its findings and recommendations reflect local needs and the circumstances facing these sports in Mid Sussex. This piece of work should be finalised by summer 2019.

Surveys will be sent from the national governing bodies, via email, to sports clubs in Mid Sussex to complete for the study. If your club doesn't receive a survey or you have any other comments you wish to make about the provision of grass and artificial turf pitches in Mid Sussex, please contact Elaine Clarke, Community Leisure Officer on 01444-477275 or email elaine.clarke@midsussex.gov.uk
