Pitch bookings and fixtures

Pitch hire

You can hire pitches between August and May each year.

We usually send paperwork out for the forthcoming season in June or July (earlier for Cricket).

We try to meet your preferred options but in some cases teams may have to play at different venues and at different kick off times. Pitches are usually available, but you must be willing to be flexible.


Fixtures must be booked through parks@pendle.gov.uk.

Sports fixtures are updated on a weekly basis. You must submit your weekend fixtures no later than 12 noon on Thursday. Mid-week fixtures must be submitted no later than 4 pm on the Friday before.

Each weekend's sports fixtures are updated from 2 pm each Thursday.

  • Football Fixtures will start again in the middle of August

Pitch inspections

Pitch inspections take place on Friday afternoons. Teams can check if games are on/off by following us on twitter @PendleBC or on our Facebook page. These are updated each Friday afternoon.

The results of the pitch inspections are displayed on notice boards at all football pitch sites once the inspections have been done.  

For issues with pitch maintenance please contact parks@pendle.gov.uk.


Teams are invoiced at the end of each month and you can pay your invoices online. You need to make sure that your invoicing addresses are kept up to date.
