A place to connect, read, learn and play

Sports Hall

The multi-purpose sports hall conforms to the highest standard required by national sporting bodies. Nets and floor markings are provided for a whole host of different sports and there is a small viewing area for spectators. There is a toilet within the hall. The lighting and air handling are of the highest standard needed for any sport as well as being very eco-friendly.

Sports which can be catered for include:

  • Cricket: thanks to a grant from the England & Wales Cricket Board, nets, floor covering and lighting mean that cricket practice can be offered all year round.
  • Football and Futsal. Click here to find out about football training sessions.
  • Badminton, tennis, short tennis and pickleball: four badminton courts, a full sized tennis court and short tennis are available to match level standard. Badminton night (an open session) is on Mondays from 8-10pm and Pickleball is on Monday and Thursday mornings and Friday evenings.
  • Basketball and netball: hoops and court markings are fitted. A netball session runs on a Tuesday evening.
  • Volleyball – a session is already running on Wednesday evenings. Click here for details.
  • Community Gym – this takes places every morning from 9am-1pm, usually in Sport’s Hall, though sometimes it will be set up in the Thomas Gifford Room. Click here for details.
  • Table tennis: there is a table in the Thomas Gifford Room, which can also be set up in the sports hall.
  • Other: the sports hall can be used for other team sports or large classes; click here for other activities such as yoga, dance, martial arts, wellbeing and therapy sessions.
