Blue Flames is rightly proud of its reputation for top quality playing fields. The grounds have three full size 11 a side pitches maintained by 2 full time dedicated groundsmen. Additionally there are two 5-a-side pitches which can be hired for one-off games or block booked for cup or league matches.
The Northumberland F.A. (NFA) has its main offices on the site and reserves the use of one pitch which is the home of West Allotment Celtic (WAC). This pitch has floodlights, covered stands and fencing around the entire playing area. NFA also host some Newcastle United reserve games.
Two other pitches are home to Marden Over 40s, Darsley Park Over 40s and Tyne View Park.
