Pitches 1, 2 and 3: The Triangle Leisure Centre (Burgess Hill)
There is one large hall which will be split into three pitches. A large balcony at one end provides space to watch games and hang out. The TD desk will be up on that balcony.
Pitch 1 – Please be particularly careful when on the sideline closest to the other pitches. If you need to be here make sure you’re not at the back of Pitch 2 and 3 (ie. aim to stand right in the middle) – it’s easy to forget about the game behind you when you’re engrossed in sidelining, and we’d like to avoid any injuries!
Please take your post match chats outside if the weather isn’t too bad. Nicely out of the way of others using the venue. Outside is just past the two squash courts as you leave the hall.
Water is a bit weird at The Triangle. It tastes fine but they don’t have fountains in sensible places. There’s one in the gym, the swimming pool area and the 1st floor studio. Failing that the water from the loo sinks is ok. It comes from the same pipes.
Please use the bins and bin bags provided! If you can’t see one get up and have a look around. Once your games have finished please take full advantage of the showering facilities on offer, and be patient if your host is being roped into helping tidy up.
Food at the venue
There is a Costa Coffee café at the venue serving semi-limited hot and cold food throughout the day. There are also free bananas and apples up along the balcony.
Travelling by car
Get yourself onto the A23 until you reach the junction for the A2300 towards Burgess Hill (Burgess Hill will be sign posted). Continue down the A2300 until you reach the second roundabout (go straight over the first roundabout). At the second roundabout take the third exit (straight over), turn left, this then takes you into the sports centre. There will be loads of parking.
Travelling by train
Burgess Hill is on the main line between London Victoria and Brighton, although ‘express’ trains don’t stop there. Get off at Burgess Hill and order a taxi. You’re going to ‘The Triangle’ sports centre. It’s a 10 minute / 2.5 mile drive. Probably best to phone the taxi as you arrive into the station so you’re not waiting too long.
