Bristol Rovers practise on the football pitch, though it is closed for maintenance as of 2016.[1] The fields are owned by Redland High School for Girls owns the fields. [2] A large Tesco store was built in 1993 on an adjacent green-field site, which had been for many years the playing fields of Bristol Grammar School. The construction was unpopular with the local community and drew protests.[3] Plans for expansion are currently being reviewed.

A second playing field is located in Golden Hill on Wimbledon Road. This is used by Golden Hill Sports Ltd (registered charity 1118954), which runs the YMCA Cricket Club and Golden Hill Sports Football Club. In addition, the charity also organises children's activity days during the school holidays as well as a number of social events throughout the year.
