Planning permission was obtained for an exciting new play space and the equipment on the Recreation Ground was completely replaced in 2020 following the purchase of the land by the Parish Council.  An illustration of the new equipment is below:

There is also a children’s playground in Tun Furlong. This is currently managed by Bellway for a 24 month maintenance period and will pass into parish ownership in due course.

Multi-Use Ball Games Court

Nicholas King Homes will be constructing a family friendly multi-use ball games court  on parish council owned land at the rear of the hall car park.  Planning permission has already been granted.  Replacement car parking will be provided adjacent to the current site and this will be adopted by the parish council.  eta Spring 2021.  This will be freely accessible for everyone to enjoy.  An illustration is below:

Skate Park 

A concrete skate park will be procured and will eventually sit between the ball court and the play space.  Tendering was postponed due to Covid-19 as it has been difficult to effectively engage with the young people of the village.  Again, this will be free for you to enjoy.  You can find out further details in the current projects section of this web site.

Football

The council owns and manages the pavilion on Marsworth Road which has two football pitches (one full sized and one junior).  The pavilion was extended and modernised in 2020, and now provides a community room available for general hire, kitchen, parish office and changing village.   This is the home site for the Pitstone & Ivinghoe Junior Football Club and the Pitstone & Ivinghoe United Football Club.

We also provide a full sized football pitch on Pitstone Recreation Ground which is the home site for the Pitstone, Ivinghoe and Cheddington United Football Club plus a number of the P&I Junior Football teams.

Both sites are currently operating at full capacity.   Hire charges apply.

An open access full sized goal is provided in the kicking area opposite Hever Close playground, which is freely available for all to enjoy.  The multi-use ball court on the recreation ground, eta Spring 2021, will also provide freely accessible football space.

Cricket

The village green / recreation ground is home to the Ivinghoe & Pitstone United Cricket Club who play matches and host training sessions throughout the cricket season.
