The Parish Council owns and maintains two playing fields, Paradise Road and the Pleasure Bit in Oxney Green.  It also owns a number of buildings at the Paradise Road site including the Pavilion (run and operated by the Writtle Sports and Social Club).

Both playing fields contain areas of play equipment for children and there is a skateboard strip and youth shelter at Paradise Road. There is outdoor gym equipment at the Pleasure Bit in Oxney Green.

The Paradise Road Sports Field has football pitches, a cricket pitch, tennis courts (run and operated by the Writtle Sports and Social Club) and a state of the art 4G flood lit multi use games area for hire all year round.  

The teamwork between the Parish Council and the Writtle Sports & Social Club has led to the recent development of a replacement floor and redecoration of the events hall at the Paradise Road venue. The Communities Initiative Fund was the main source of income for the project but this was substantially contributed to by the Tickers group which use the hall four days every week  for cardiac rehabilitation, Writtle Parish Council and fund raising by all the sections. The colour schemes were selected especially to aid the sight of a table tennis ball by the players and matched by the Sewing club to provide a warm homely feel. A special thanks to Paul Delaney and Ben Irving for completing the funding process.
