Rovers have four grounds they use for their various teams with two being in Ashby itself and two in the nearby Moira. The team in the NLL are playing their home games this season at the Moira Miners Welfare ground in Moira, this though not to be confused with fellow NLL side Moira United's ground who play at a different location within the village.

For centuries North West Leicestershire has been quarried and mined for coal, limestone, granite and brick clay, and its environmental damage was one of the reasons that it was chosen as the site for the National Forest, which is part of a government funded programme to create more woodland.
The 120 acres (49 ha) National Forest Millennium Discovery Centre, now called CONKERS is on the former Rawdon Colliery site, and its visitor centre features a novel borehole based heating and cooling system.
Moira is the location for a new youth hostel and a camping and caravanning site for the National Forest. The hostel, YHA National Forest is run by YHA and the campsite run by the Camping and Caravanning Club. They both opened in 2008.
