The Polwarth Oval

History

Between the 2002 and 2003 seasons, Preston Village moved from Meadowmill Sports Centre into the heart of Prestonpans to the Polwarth Oval. Primarily due to funding from East Lothian county council a cricket square was reinstalled onto the field shared with Prestonpans Primary School, a location of a long lost school cricket pitch. In addition to the new square, the club's net facilities were also transferred to the Polwarth Oval.

Since arriving in 2003, the continual development of the Polwarth Oval has been a key area of the club's development processes. In 2006, Polwarth Oval was selected to host both the inaugural final of ESCA's Presidents Plate, in which Preston Village defeated a strong Clackmannan County side, and one of the Sports Relief mile challenges. At the end of that season, a full length artificial cricket pitch was installed on the edge of the square with artificial surfaces was installed into the net area. In 2011, the first stage of the Polwarth Development Plan was complete with the opening of the newly refurbished pavilion, refurbished as part of a county-wide investment into sports facilities by East Lothian Council.

The Polwarth Oval provides a fantastic base for all Preston Village events, from senior training and games to the after school and summer holiday junior clubs. Not only is it the home of Preston Village but during the winter it has acted as a temporary home for both Preston Lodge rugby club and Preston Athletic football club. In 2014, the Polwarth Oval was selected to host exhibitions during the Three Harbours Arts Festivals as well as the venue for a charity fundraiser with that year's charity, The First Step community project. 

As further recognition for the quality of the Polwarth Oval's facilities and the tireless work of those responsible for the continual development of the venue, East Lothian Cricket announced that the East Lothian Junior hardball sides (Under-11s and Under-13s) will be using the Polwarth Oval as thier training base for the 2015 season.
