Sports Hall

Our huge sports hall is a fantastic facility for groups of young people to enjoy organised sporting activities. This bright and well-ventilated building can be used for multiple sporting uses and is the ideal location for sports training and competitive play in the winter months too. 

The Sports Hall is available for booking between 5pm and 11pm on weekdays and all day at the weekend, subject to availability. 

Look at the calendar below for more idea of availability – some groups book for 2 hours, so click “week” at the top of the calendar to check the start and end time of current bookings  –  or click the button to make a booking enquiry.

Remember to click “Week” on the calendar view to check the end times of bookings as this will help you find the right available slot for your group!


Indoors not for you? Made of sterner stuff? Our Multi Use Games Area (MUGA) is where you’ll want to be. The MUGA can be easily adapted for a range of organised sporting activities, including football, basketball, cricket and tennis.

Targets dotted around the outside of the MUGA allow you to turn skills training into a game in itself; you could even bring your own table tennis bats and balls to use our outdoor tables to keep everyone occupied!

We make sure that everyone is kept safe from contact with others by booking the MUGA on the half-hour, so even if groups are using the Sports Hall they’ll never be arriving and leaving at the same time. 

The MUGA is available for booking between 5.30pm and 11pm on weekdays and all day at the weekend, subject to availability.
