SRGT’s facilities are available to hire for a range of sports and activities. The grounds and facilities are also available to hire for hosting social events. To request further information, please use the Contact Us form on

General Rules of the Recreation Ground are NO dogs (except assistance dogs), NO horses; NO motor vehicles of any sort; NO microlights, Drones or Model planes; NO golf; NO commercial activity without consent.

Somerton Recreation Ground Trust CIO is a registered charity (CIO 1181452) with the aim of preserving, maintaining and improving the facilities for the ongoing benefit of the town and local area.

This great facility is provided by the Charity and not the Town Council and the Charity needs all the help it can get both financial and non financial.

The annual running costs for the Recreation Ground are in excess of £30,000. It is funded mainly through pitch fees and sponsorship, supplemented by rents and hire charges from regular and occasional users of the various facilities along with a small grant from Somerton Town Council.

At Etsomme Terrace there is a play area for toddlers through to 7.  A Memorial garden has been built next to the play area so Mums can sit and watch the children and enjoy a well earned rest in a peaceful setting.

So why not come and try all our recreational facilities  – you won’t be disappointed.

There is plenty to do so why not bring the family for a day out!
