Cotswold Recreation Ground and Sports Centre

Downs Way, Tilehurst 

The field has one full sized football pitch which is used from 1 September until 30 April each year by local clubs.

There is a play area for use by under 8’s, and an area for older children with a slide and rope bridge. There is also a ‘goal end’ where budding footballers can practice their skills and a basketball hoop.

The Sports Centre is leased by the parish to West Berkshire Council, who in turn sublet it to Parkwood Leisure.  Any enquiries about using the sports centre should be directed to them on 0118 941 4690.

The changing rooms at the sports centre are used by a local football club who hire the pitch, with a payment being made by the parish to West Berkshire Council for its use out of the pitch hire fees.
