Football Block Booking Application

COVID-19 Updates - Outdoor courts and grass pitches

Outdoor Courts and grass pitches are currently not available during phase 1 of our facilities re-opening.

We are currently listening and being guided on ever changing policies and procedures from all our sporting governing bodies and the government. As we receive information for each sport/activity, we are considering the impact of provision in each building to ensure safety of customers and staff. Once we have confirmed procedures and policies following this guidance we will update our Derby Active pages and social media channels.

Update 8 July 2020

During these unprecedented times, the Derby Parks Team would like to clarify our stance on football training and matches held on parks and green spaces within the city. We have studied the government and FA guidelines on grassroots football and the following notes are for all teams who play on Derby’s parks.

  • We are not currently taking official bookings for formal training sessions or matches on any football pitches (artificial and grass) within parks. 
  • Informal football training sessions can take place, however, football teams should be adhering to government and FA guidance. No more than six people training in a group (including the trainer) but there can be more than one group of six training on the same park at any one time.
  • Teams should not be using football pitches, especially around the goal mouths and penalty areas, for informal training as this will compromise their availability when formal football is back in play. A pitch improvement plan is in its infancy and excess summer wear may be detrimental to their recovery.

If guidance is not being respected, a representative from the Council’s Outdoor Sports, Park Rangers or Public Protection Teams may ask your team to stop training. This may affect potential football bookings on parks in the future.   

We look forward to brighter times where we can get back to some kind of normal.
