We designed and built an indoor five-court multi-use sports facility which also included changing rooms and a reception area. In addition to the sports facility we also built an indoor 25m swimming pool.
A new sports hub is making a massive difference to the pupils of a school in Hampshire, making a diverse range of sports accessible all year round and also extending use of the facility to the local community.
The first phase – an outdoor floodlit astro pitch and three hard courts for tennis and netball – was completed in spring 2015. The second phase was the indoor sports facility; a large project which consisted of a five court multi-sport facility complete with spectator gallery, 25m swimming pool, four shower and changing facilities, a reception area and a large storage space.
The five badminton court facility meets Sport England specification and also incorporates a full-size tennis court, five mini tennis courts, netball, basketball and four indoor cricket nets.
The design of the courts provides the flexibility to be divided into a three or two court orientation, allowing separate sports to take place in their own areas at the same time.
A viewing gallery offers spectators a bird’s eye view of the action.
