Welcome to the Owen Harris Sports and Playing Fields Website.
This ground is set in the Gloucestershire village of Eastington. Eastington is fortunate enough to have the use of a superb eight acre area of sports and playing fields. In 1989, The Owen Harris Site, was bequest to the people of Eastington by Mrs Shirley Harris, in memory of her husband and local farmer, Mr Owen Harris. The land was to be used 'for the benefit of the residents of Eastington, for social and recreational use.' Surrounded by stunning views, the grounds are available to everyone within the locality for social and community activities.
Such activities range from the Alkerton Rangers Football Club, Eastington Cricket Club, Eastington Playgroup and various clubs and events for the youngsters of Eastington and its surrounding villages. Set in eight acres of ground, this superb site boasts a full size football pitch and exceptionally well presented cricket pitch. Both are currently in use by the Alkerton Rangers Football Club and Eastington Cricket club. The area also has the benefit of a small play area for younger children to come along to and 'let off steam'.
The Owen Harris Grounds have for some years had the use of a small Community Building which has served the area well. It included changing rooms and showering facilities for use after a sports event on the field, as well as a small hall for use by clubs, societies and communal events.
This building has now been replaced by our brand-new community centre! With sports changing facilities, main meeting hall and meeting rooms, this new centre is a state-of-the-art design that overlooks some wonderful views of the countryside.
