Simply put, the Ottawa Gloucester Hornets are blessed to have some of the best soccer facilities in Ontario!
Nestled in a spectacular greenbelt setting, ringed by majestic woodlands, there are few better venues for the soccer player or spectator. On a beautiful summer day the Hornets Nest can best be described as idyllic. A perfect combination of green grass, fresh air and sunshine that provides a fitting setting in which to play the beautiful game.
Our 11 Hornets Nest pitches and the TMSI SuperDome have a reputation for being among the best in the City. Many a player has welcomed a visit to the Hornets Nest, confident in the knowledge that the ball will still run true, and that a tumble to the ground will not feel like crashing into concrete.
Our clubhouse, the Pavillon Eric Danis Clubhouse, was expanded in 2011 to add team change rooms. It brings together a meeting room, Hornets office space, canteen, storage rooms, washrooms and a new outdoor patio deck. The meeting room is a particular focal point for our soccer community with its soccer ball shaped glass window. It has hosted hundreds of team meetings, coaching sessions and social get-togethers over the years.
The on-site dome holds one full field, or 3 mini-fields perfect for our winter soccer programs and training.
Please Remember that All of Ottawa's Sports Fields are Smoke-Free!
