Our amazing new Sports facilities include a full size 4 court Sports Hall which is marked out as 4 badminton courts; 4 Basketball / Netball training courts with adjustable height hoops; plus full size Basketball, Netball, Volleyball and indoor Football courts. The Sports Hall is fitted with Cricket Nets as well as competition standard Basketball backboards and hoops.

New changing facilities, with showers, are close to the sports facilities, and alongside the Dance Studio which can be used for fitness classes our King Gym is fully fitted with a range of cardio exercise machines and equipment.

Outside, as well as our 3G Pitch, two of our full 11-a-side grass pitches have recently undergone refurbishments through Sport England Protecting Playing Pitches funding, and will be available for use from May 2015. As part of the landscaping of our new build, we will also have 5-a-side and 9-a-side grass pitches ready for the 2016 season and a new full size 11-a-side football and rugby pitch.
