Exciting plans for our Sports Pavilion


At last we have planning permission to build a sports pavilion, community cafe and mining themed play area at the side of the Sports pitches on Colliery Road. Now all we have to do is get together the money to build it!!

The facility will have changing rooms with toilets for two teams and referees and full disabled facilities. The cafe will accommodate up to 40 people and there will also be an upstairs room with an outdoor viewing platform over the pitches (ideal to hire for parties).

The outdoor play area was designed by locals who were children growing up in our mining community and wanted this as a reminder of our mining heritage.

(See Future plans under Sport facility)


Just like the Astro Turf, we won’t let the grass grow in getting on with the task of raising the funding.

This will be a community facility, managed by the Kiveton Park & Wales Community Development Trust on behalf of the community

Walking Football

Kiveton Park 0036

Our Walking Football group on a Monday night has been a huge success since it started back in September 2016.

We started with just half a dozen players, but as each week went by, another and another joined, we now have approx nineteen players. Not everyone turns up every week for varying reasons, but we always have enough for seven a side complete with a qualified referee.  Its fun, great exercise a way to make new friends and all playing the game we all love.
