Club Location

Where we train

You can find us at Hough End Playing Fields.

These significant playing fields are located directly south of the city centre, adjoining the Princess Parkway leading from the city centre to the M56. Hough End fields are well used for playing sports, and this open area makes a pleasant landscape. The soil is sandy in composition, and consequently dries easily and recovers quickly from the hard wear the pitches receive during the winter months.

Facilities at Hough End Playing Fields

  • 2 Full size Gaelic Pitches
  • 3 rugby pitches
  • 24 soccer pitches
  • Car park (Broughton Park Rugby Club M21 7TL)
