The KGV sports pitches are maintained to a high standard throughout the year by professional grounds maintenance contractors, whilst other parts of the extensive grounds are looked after by our resident caretaker. The following sports are supported:
September to May
There are two full-size pitches and two smaller Colts/training pitches all sited on flat well-drained ground. The two training pitches have floodlighting for evening training and are available for hire on Monday and Friday evenings. The pitches are currently used mostly by Effingham and Leatherhead Rugby Football Club and the Howard of Effingham School and so availability is limited, but extra matches can sometimes be fitted in by careful booking.
There are two full-size pitches with goalposts, nets and flags, again sited on flat well-drained ground.
May to September
There is a cricket field with prepared cricket square as well as two cricket nets.
There is a 6-lane 400 metre oval grass running track. Changing room, toilet and shower facilities are available with the hire of all of these facilities.
We have a hard court area that consists of a multi-purpose outdoor facility with floodlighting.
In its normal configuration it is set up as two tennis courts and a multi-purpose court suitable for netball, basketball or 5-a-side football. However it has been designed with flexibility in mind and this layout can be changed at short notice.
