3G Pitches

Our multi-sport 3G artificial pitches cater for a range of sports including football, rugby and recreational games/events.

3G pitch 1

This 3G artificial grass pitch provides a year round, all-weather pitch area for students and community teams to enjoy and used for local club football/rugby matches and international standard training sessions.

In addition to University use, there are opportunities for weekend bookings for small or full-sided football games on the 3G pitch from 9am - 7pm.

We also have grass pitches available for football and rugby that have been acknowledged as some of the finest in East of Scotland.

 

This project was gratefully supported by the CashBack For Communities fund.
