About this facility

Test Park hosts the majority of Team Solent footballrugby, and American football training sessions and fixtures. We welcome spectators for Team Solent Football's Sydenham's Wessex Premier League fixtures, or for something different, our American football teams, Solent Redhawks and Solent Thrashers.

Test Park also provides a vital resource for the practical training elements our students on our football degree programmes have to undertake.

Solent Sport places a large emphasis on community engagement and the facility is also regularly used by local football clubs and training academies.
