Scholes Sports Pavilion
The sports pavilion is a Parish Council owned, maintained and run by a small management committee. This community asset is available for hire at very competitive rates . Residents of the parish get favourable rates and this venue is ideal for smaller functions (maximum of 50 people) Other users have found it ideal for children’s parties and committee meetings including the parish council itself. From September 2021 the pavilion became home to a local personal trainer Donna O’Neill running one to one sessions several times each week. Beginning early in 2022 there will be an OUTREACH POST OFFICE on Thursday afternoons providing FULL Post Office facilities.
The sports field can also be booked in conjunction with the pavilion for ‘themed’ children’s parties based on sporting activities. This is done by the organisation that run our regular Saturday morning football sessions held by Five Star Sports for youngsters aged from 2 to 11.
2020 saw the return of junior football to the sports field and is hosted by Shadwell F.C. Juniors who play in the Garforth Under 14 and under 12’s league. Scholes and Barwick residents are encouraged to go along and become involved.

An outdoor gym area will also be created with access from the sports field.
