Sports Ground





The Golden Hill Sports Ground, which for many years has been the home of the YMCA Cricket and Football Club, is now permanently secured for the use of local people after a campaign to raise the funds to buy it. 

A total of £240,000 needed to purchase the ground from the YMCA was raised by donations from residents and club members together with grants from the Fields Trust, the Football Association, a Biffa award and a loan from the English Cricket Board.


Golden Hill Sports Ground

The sports ground is run by Golden Hill Sports Ltd , a charity that incorporates the YMCA Cricket Club, Golden Hill Football Club and Henleaze Sonics football. Safeguards have been put in place to keep the area as a local facility. 

Golden Hill facilities

There is a Club Premises Certificate which enables the club to run a bar in the pavilion providing drinks at sporting events and other functions. Income from the bar goes towards paying off the loan which helped buy the ground.

The Pavilion has also been refurbished and can be booked for children`s parties, family gatherings and meetings. There is also parking for at least 40 cars.
