Slightly different to the other indoor football pitches on the list, yet, it this by no mean diminishes what a brilliant sporting facility it is. Firstly, the playing surface is different. The MUGA creates a quicker, slicker outfield. As well as playing football, MUGA enables you to play all kinds of sports on this playing surface from Hockey to Netball to Basketball. Although, not necessarily an indoor pitch, more of a sheltered venue. This is still a venue that is a must play.

Containing both 11-a-side and 7-a-side 3G astroturf pitches, the centre also boasts a quality 5-a-side indoor pitch available for hire.
