Outdoor Recreation Facilities


We have seven rugby pitches in Pendle (six adult and one junior), which are used for Rugby Union and League matches. Pitches are available for hire from August through to May each year.

The rugby pitches at Holt House are leased on a long term basis to Colne and Nelson Rugby Club. Any bookings for the three pitches must be made directly through the rugby club. To book pitches or get further information on the club, contact Chris Buck on cebuck@consultant.com.

We also have purpose built rugby facilities at Victory Park in Barnoldswick, including a senior rugby pitch, a training pitch and a clubhouse that serves the rugby and football pitches on the site.

West Craven Warriors use the pitch and clubhouse as a home base for league matches and training. 

Pitch allocation forms (including fees and charges) for the forthcoming season are sent out annually usually during June.

The cutting and marking out of pitches is done by our Landscape Maintenance Team on a weekly basis. We have an annual pitch renovation programme that starts at the end of the rugby season.

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