Football at RSL


We have been working hard on plans to reopen our leisure centres. We are pleased to announce that Reading Sport and Leisure (RSL) centres at Meadway Sports Centre, Palmer Park Sports Stadium and South Reading Leisure Centre, will reopen from Monday 3rd August.
It will be a phased reopening with the safety of the public and our staff as a top priority. We will be closely following the national guidance and governing body safety recommendations, including measures such as enhanced cleaning schedule at all centres and staff working in small ‘bubbles’ to reduce risk of transmission. You will also see safety guidance signage and where appropriate, queuing and one-way systems.

For further details see our Centre Re-opening Updates page.

We can cater for friendly football kick-arounds for both adults and children, through to weekly 5-a-side bookings and large corporate tournaments.

Facilties include outdoor 5-a-side courts, on artificial grass and rebound boards, through to grass pitch stadium football complete with a 780 seated covered stand.


No matches found


Bookings for pitches can be either as a 'one-off' booking or a block booking (a minimum of 10 bookings).

Palmer Park Stadium

Palmer Park Stadium Pitch

Palmer Park Sports Stadium provides a spectacular venue for grass pitch football. With seating capacity of 780 in the covered grandstand, the atmosphere at football matches is amazing. PA and floodlighting is also available.

The stadium pitch is an ideal venue for company competitions and tournament events, with bookings available from September through to April.

5-a-side Pitches

Palmer Park Sports Stadium

Our three 5-a-side football courts at Palmer Park Sports Stadium have 3G artificial grass, for  a superb playing surface. The playing surface feels like grass, looks like grass and plays like grass! All courts have floodlights if required.

Prospect Park

We offer five 5-a-side 3G astro turf courts which has a great playing surface. All courts have floodlights if required.

We also have two carpet 5-a-side astro turf courts (that can be hired together to provide a larger training space). Flood lighting is available if required.
