Reclaim Sighthill pitches

This petition had 227 supporters

Sighthill pitches has been taken over by Napier Uni and Scottish rugby. There is 1 football pitch ( there used to be 5 ) and 3 rugby pitches. The 1 football pitch is now not available to local amateur teams. There are now no pitches available locally for any local team to use stretching from Clovenstone down to Broomhouse. The nearest pitches for local teams are either Saughton or the Gyle. In the last 2 years since the change I personally have seen 1 football match being played on the pitch and that was on a Wednesday afternoon. Every weekend the pitch is free meaning our local teams could benefit from its use. For a seemingly deprived area to not have any pitches available is shocking. Hopefully enough people sign this petition and make Edinburgh leisure take notice.
