No different than Mullion, Helston, Perranwell and others.

Agreed Mullion has a slope end to end, Perranwell is dominated by the side slope and Helston is sideways. The point I am trying to make is that such a pronounced slope dictates the game moreso than the players.

Not as bad as the old Glebe  in Penryn and the old Mabe pitch halfway up the hill...that was like the Alps !

The old Mabe pitch up the hill just by the quarry, it had the same gradient as the hill!

I would guess the lower touchline to be 30ft lower than the top line, and the top goal mouth sloped up even steeper!

Probably 50 years ago now.

Wow!

Contrary to popular belief the slope on the pitch at Hayle is only 4 feet from end to end (1 in 80). the slope corner to corner is slightly higher. The pitch was originally laid like this to aid drainage and so over the years it has proven the experts right. 

A natural field with its original water table is also a big bonus.
