Grass Pitch Paddy Freeman's

Grass Pitch Hire

UPDATE: Once again, the continuing spells of inclement weather and saturated ground conditions plus the lack of opportunity to carry out grounds maintenance on playing fields has resulted in Urban Green pitches being unplayable. .As we enter the extended Christmas holiday period it has been agreed within Urban Green Newcastle, the Ground’s Maintenance and Open Space teams at Newcastle City Council to suspend the usage of our pitches and green spaces for any sports until into the New Year. This decision will be reviewed week commencing Monday 1st January 2024 for games scheduled on our pitches for the weekend of 6th & 7th January 2024. There has been very little opportunity to carry out any pitch maintenance over recent weeks and it has been agreed that the maintenance teams will require a window of drier conditions of up to 2 weeks to bring our pitches back up to standard. Please under no circumstances use any of our pitches or playing fields during this time for any form of matches, competitive or friendlies, or for any organised training sessions, kick-abouts and get togethers. 

If you’re looking for a grass pitch to hire, we have 11 available across 5 of our parks:

  • Paddy Freemans Park (Changing Available)
  • Castle Farm Park (Changing Available)
  • Walker Park
  • Harbottle Park

We offer a selection of versatile pitches that lend themselves well to a range of sports, including football and rugby. We also offer various unmarked grass pitches for some other sport or activity. 

To make an enquiry or ask any questions about hiring a pitch for a one off, weekly, bi-weekly, seasonal or any other type of hire then please contact the team on
