The provision of the new 3G pitch has been one of the recommendations of the Sevenoaks Sports Strategy. A strategy which was created by Sevenoaks Town Council in consultation with over forty local sports clubs.
The funding of the £400,000 3G Football Pitch has been made possible by a £70,000 grant from Cory Environmental Trust Britain, the balance from The Sevenoaks Fund* and a £200,000 donation from Sevenoaks Town Council.
The new floodlit 3G pitch will be used extensively by Sevenoaks Town FC who run 60 teams for players as young as five up to veterans. The club will use the pitch all-year round to host matches and for training sessions. The new facility will pave the way for Sevenoaks Town FC to continue growing and widen their provision of football - including a ladies team and walking football. The club is on course to grow to 70 teams over the next four years. In addition to the club's own use, local primary schools will be given the chance to use the pitch free of charge during the day for sports and activities.
