Artificial Turf Pitch (ATP)
At Longton Rugby we have a superb third-generation, all weather, Artificial Turf Pitch (the ATP) that is available for hire.
This floodlit facility was built as part of the Barclays Spaces for Sports Programme, and can be used for Rugby, Football and many other sports and leisure activities.
Our Artificial Turf Pitch is complemented by Longton Rugby’s amazing social, classroom, and changing facilities incorporated into the Phoenix Suite Banqueting and Conference Centre. The ATP and Phoenix Suite combine together provide the perfect setting for children’s parties and business or social events.
Being nothing like the old astro-turf pitches that you may be familiar with, playing on the ATP is just like playing on grass…
but without any muddy waterlogged pitches!
It is as close as you can possibly get to grass, making it a realistic training facility, and is child friendly, and injury free.
In addition to the ATP, you can hire our:
- Phoenix Suite Conference & Banqueting Centre – for business meetings, weddings, and parties
- Floodlit grass training area.
- Football pitch.
- Two fantastic senior rugby pitches (1 with floodlights).
- Two junior rugby pitches.
- Six immaculate changing rooms.
- Physiotherapy Room.
- Referees changing rooms.
