Sports Park Weetwood have offered us everything that a Tier 1 Girls’ Regional Talent club needs, the facilities are second to none with well-maintained grass pitches and changing rooms. The staff and grounds staff are fantastic with excellent communication throughout the week and work hard to keep the pitches looking their best all year round. Weetwood make our match days a much more enjoyable experience and boast facilities which are fit for our elite programme.
The facilities at Weetwood are brilliant and the staff are very accommodating to our needs. I was able to complete some of my key sessions in the build-up to the Rio Olympic Games on the grass at Sports Park Weetwood – which was the perfect surface for some fast running.
We have used Sports Park Weetwood over a number of years because of the quality of the facilities and how helpful and supportive the staff are. The main pitch is as good as any premiership rugby main pitch and it supports the way that England want to develop its best young talent.
This facility is the home base for the ‘Yorkshire CCC’ Academy. The facility is now used from U14 to the professional squads.
