The Artificial Turf Pitch (ATP) at The Pingle Academy has been funded jointly by the Football Foundation, South Derbyshire District Council and the school. The project was developed in partnership with local football clubs, the District Council and the Derbyshire FA after the site was identified in 2005 as a much needed facility in the South Derbyshire area. The facility began operating in September 2006 and it was officially opened by Sir Trevor Brooking, FA Director of Football Development on 7 November 2006.
Nov 2018: A major refurbishment of our Astro Pitch has taken place. Details will follow soon.
