Sports & Recreation Facilities
Holwell has a large Recreation ground with Football and Cricket Pitch, together with the Holwell Bowls Club. This is maintained overall by Holwell Parish Council.
Holwell, itself, sadly no longer has its own cricket club, but the facilities are used regularly by Ickleford Cricket Club as its second ground.
The football pitch is used during the season by Hitchin Town Harriers.
Recreation Facilities are detailed in Parks and Open Spaces pages.
Children's Play Areas are shown on the Children's Play pages.
