An active community

The vision for Sherford is to create a community where it is easy for people to be active, with high-quality, accessible sports and recreation facilities as well as informal outdoor space, walking and cycling routes.


Sports pitches and play areas

Sherford will enjoy a generous number of outdoor sports pitches situated on both the western and eastern edges of the community. From all weather pitches to cricket pavilions, adventure zones to playparks, Sherford’s facilities will support all ages and interests.


Sherford leisure centre

Sherford will be home to a new leisure centre, including a heated 25m swimming pool, fitness suite, studios, café and much more. Plans for the new leisure centre are currently progressing through the planning process.


Current and future developments

Near to where the leisure centre will be built, the multi-use games area, tennis courts, skate park and play area are already open, with an all-weather pitch and football pitch soon to follow. Just to the north of the leisure centre will be cricket and rugby pitches, a further football pitch, a new pavilion with changing facilities, as well as pitches for the primary and secondary schools.

In the east of Sherford will be a further set of football pitches, tennis courts, cricket pavilion and changing facilities, as well as a multi-use games area and play area.

West Sherford Wood will also benefit from play facilities that will be integrated into the woodland area.
