Love Your Football @ Lindfield
Whilst run independently, LSC has a longstanding relationship with Lindfield Football Club and has become the home of LFC. Whilst the courts and clubhouse can be hired by all members of our community LFC members will get preference. LSC has become the place for team celebrations and post-match catch ups to dissect the game or training session.
LSC aims to employ young adults, either finishing high school or university who take pride and enjoyment in sport and the community. Most of whom have risen through the ranks of LFC being players for many years. For further information, feel free to get in touch with us via the Contact Page.
Our all-weather sports facility was built on the site of the two unused bowling greens at the West Lindfield Sports and Recreation Club, now trading as Lindfield Sports Centre. The all-weather courts complement the existing bowling green at WLSRC and offers a wide variety of sporting options with a predominant use for 5 aside football. The facilities is available to the local community and could be utilised by many of the schools in the local area, a number of which have limited space for sports activities.
The Lindfield Sports Centre is in full accordance with current noise laws and makes adequate parking provision.
