The Meadows, also known as Catons Lanes, is home to Saffron Walden Town FC, who claim to be the 19th-oldest club in the world. It has a capacity of 2,000 and has hosted the team's home matches since 1890, but the sloping pitch has prevented the club's ambitions to progress since the end of the First World War. The slope –once 15 feet 2 inches from corner to corner– has now been reduced, but it left the club with a large overdraft.
