Community and sports groups to get free use of grass pitches

June 15 2021

We are delighted to be working in partnership with Swansea Council in providing local sporting clubs, community groups and charities in Swansea free access to grass pitches

Following Swansea Council's announcmenet that charges for using facilities like sports pitches, parks and beaches for community football, rugby, cricket, outdoor exercise classes will be suspended up until 31st March, 2022. We are pleased to announce that this will also be available across Freedom Leisure Swansea sites Elba Sports Complex, Penyrheol Leisure Centre and Bishopston Sports Centre.

The move comes as Swansea and the rest of Wales eases out of lockdown in the weeks and months ahead.

Welsh Government and Swansea council have come up with a great way to remove any barriers to outside exercise and we are delighted to be able to offer Elba’s Grass pitch facilities as part of this initiative. We will hope to see even more use of these pitches as the year progresses and have added slots to our online booking facility to help customer take advantage
