-MUGA – 28m x 15m and Gates,
-Sports Markings – 5-a-side, Basketball and Tennis,
-Basketball Posts and Goal Marker Posts,
-Footpath for gate access.
The installation of this site provided a few challenges for the team due to working within a welfare facility. The team needed to store all tools and materials in a steel store throughout the project, along with HERAS fencing set to provide a boundary to the works.
The outcome was a fantastic sports court which could be used by the students for a variety of activities. The robust championship fencing used offered a long-term solution for the centre for regular use.
The students have enjoyed playing basketball, football and tennis within the court and have found this to be a fun way to exercise regularly with peers.
