Find your play in Bristol
Bristol has a passionate sporting population thanks to the many professional teams in the area. Football is massive in the community and allegiances are split between City and Rovers. Both have had big success in the past. Rugby and cricket are also very popular and each of these professional teams has ensured a grassroots legacy for Bristolians. There are numerous grassroots football facilities around to cater for multiple formats and surfaces. Grass pitches can easily be booked online and if you’re looking for an artificial equivalent then there are 3G and astro-turf options. Leagues or one-off casual games are just as easy to book. There are lots of mixed and female fixtures to get involved in too.
Racket sports are great fun to play and Bristol has plenty of facilities to choose from. Tennis can be played on multiple surfaces, including grass, concrete, macadam or even indoors. Coaching is easily sorted too. Squash is always played indoors and means players can avoid the poor weather that sadly we see too often. Sports in Bristol are a fantastic way to meet new people and become better integrated with the community. It’s also a wonderful way to keep fit and maintain a good mental wellbeing.
