Hauxton Sports Ground is primarily for organised team sports and training, although we welcome local youngsters for ad hoc games of football at any time when matches or training are not in progress during the football season.
Hauxton Sports Ground is beside the A10 Cambridge Road, opposite the block of apartments being build at Hauxton Meadows. (On the map below it is marked as Hauxton Football Field – click on map to enlarge it.) If you are driving, turn in at the traffic lights.

History of Hauxton Sports Ground
The Hauxton Sports Ground (formerly the sports field belonging to the Bayer Sports and Social Club or Fisons – if you go back far enough) is now owned and managed by the parish council (with effect from 8 September 2015). The Sports Ground is used mainly for organised sports, principally football, cricket and tennis. To achieve this the parish council has agreed partnerships with local football and cricket clubs. This joint approach has enabled, and will continue to enable, Hauxton to provide opportunities for sport, especially for youngsters, much quicker than would have been possible by starting up new clubs solely from existing residents. Other clubs or organised groups wishing to hire the pitches will be able to do so.
During the summer of 2015 much work was done in recovering the playing surface. Unused for approximately 9 years the pitch was in a very bad state with moss, weeds and poor quality grass. The subsequent investment in work to remove the moss and weeds, aerate and scarify the surface and reseed the whole site with amenity grass species has vastly improved the pitches but there is always work to be done and volunteers are always welcome.
The new Sports Pavilion (phase 1) was completed in September 2020. This funding from the Premier League & The FA Facilities Fund and from Amey covered the cost of changing rooms, toilets and showers for two teams plus officials.
Completion of the second phase (see image below) – including club room, kitchen and public toilets, still requires a major fund raising .
