We are pleased to be able to confirm that as of 12 April we are open for badminton and from 17 May for more sports indoors. Please check with Sportshall staff before making a booking if you are unsure whether it is allowed or not. Once we reopen we will still need to follow Covid-19 Secure requirements which means turning up promptly for your booking, waiting outside to be called in, and following a one way system for entering and leaving.

Welcome to the superb new Sports Hall at Hiltingbury Recreation Ground. The facility opened its doors in July 2019 and has been growing in popularity very quickly ever since.

It is a great new facility for our parish, making it even easier to get involved with sport in a friendly and sociable local resource, helping to build healthier lifestyles at affordable costs. Conveniently located at the recreation ground off Hiltingbury Road, with good parking for cars and bicycles. It is also easy to walk to!

Bookings for the sports hall can be made 24/7 via our online booking system and the sports hall is usually open 0700hrs to 2200hrs 7 days a week. Bookings can also be made by visiting the sports hall in person or contacting the friendly staff team (who will always be happy to show you around). The team is headed up by Geoff. Contact them direct by phone 023 8017 0506 or email: sportshall@chandlersford-pc.gov.uk


The facility is a 4-court sports hall with a semi-sprung floor. It is marked out for futsal, five-a-side football, badminton, netball, basketball (retractable baskets), volleyball and indoor tennis (Indoor tennis is only bookable through the sports hall office).

Other sports that are available include soft tennis, table tennis, short mat bowls and dodgeball etc.

Don’t worry if you don’t have any equipment to play, we have racquets, balls, bowls and other essential items (such as netball gilets) available to hire and bookable online.

Weekends are off-peak and therefore make hiring the sports hall, for futsal or netball etc, parties very affordable.


The first floor has a suite of rooms available to hire for running classes such as pilates, yoga, martial arts and dance. The main studio is large at 140m2 with air conditioning and a semi-sprung floor.

There are also two smaller studios at 41m2 and 51m2 with foam backed vinyl flooring, which are due to have air conditioning fitted soon. The first floor also has male and female toilets.

Please contact the sports hall staff about hiring these studios on 023 8017 0506.


The sports hall also boasts a reception area with adjoining office and refreshments are available along with a seating/waiting area.

An accessible change/toilet/shower is on this level.

Male and female changing rooms are on the upper ground floor along with locker storage.

Two team and two officials’ football change areas.

There are lifts for wheelchair users to access both the upper ground and the first floor.

We are doing our bit to be environmentally responsible. There is a part green (Sedum) roof as well as about 80 PV panels on the sports hall roof.
