Sports facilities

From its magnificent and historic rugby and cricket pitches to its state-of-the-art Sports Complex and Legends Tennis Centre, Haileybury's sports facilities are second-to-none. Yet sport is nothing without the right coaching and training; as well as our highly-experienced staff we also benefit from several specialist coaches who have played for their countries at the highest level.

Sports facilities

Sport is in our blood

At Haileybury the importance of sport is recognised as a vehicle for healthy living, as an opportunity to engage in and learn from competition, and as a means in itself for fun and fulfilment.

Since 1862, sport has been an integral part of what Haileybury has to offer; with this comes a sporting infrastructure which is the envy of many others. Sport is in our blood.

Magnificent playing fields

The crowning glory of our sports facilities remains our acres of magnificent and beautifully-maintained playing fields, set among the rolling Hertfordshire countryside.

These include our historic Pavilion cricket pitch and the unique XV Terrace rugby pitch in the shadow of Lightning Oak with its fabulous backdrop of Wilkins' Terrace and the Chapel. Our Terrace pitch played host to top rugby stars during the Rugby World Cup 2015 when we were a Team Base for Argentina and the USA.

Haileybury also benefits from numerous other rugby and football pitches and two sand-dressed astroturf hockey pitches. We reguarly host hockey tournaments such as County Cups. We also have a dozen tennis courts and one of only 13 rackets courts existing in the country.

Our Hailey Meadow pitches are available throughout the year. Please note that on fixture days, no parking is allowed in the Meadows area. 

Fully-equipped Sports Complex

Haileybury offers a rich palette of sports so that every boy and girl can find their passion; for this reason we have invested heavily in a range of additional facilities to suit each pupil.

Our Sports Complex has a double-court Sports Hall, gymnasium, 25-metre indoor swimming pool and two glass-backed squash courts.

The Sports Complex includes indoor cricket nets and bowling machines, both of which enable cricketers to hone their skills with a winter programme of indoor cricket.

Legends Tennis Centre

In 2008, Legends Tennis opened a new indoor tennis centre, situated next to the Sports Hall.

Housing four Grand-Slam-quality indoor courts and four outdoor courts, Legends Tennis Centre offers tennis players of the future an unrivalled ability to finesse and perfect their skills.

Climbing Wall

A new addition to Haileybury's wide range of sports facilities is our brand-new climbing wall next to the Rackets court. Offering a range of different and challenging ascents, it offers pupils of all ages the opportunity to learn the skills and challenges of climbing vertical faces in a safe and secure environment.
