Eight London boroughs are to benefit from significant government investment into multi-sport grassroots facilities providing a much-needed boost to communities in the capital.
With a combined project value of over £12m, the projects cover a wide range of interventions, from artificial pitch provision to changing room improvements.
In Barking and Dagenham, Parsloes Park is set for a major redevelopment with three full-size floodlit 3G football turf pitches as well as gym, studio space, changing rooms and café with social space.
London Sport Awards winners Tigers JFC are among the clubs who will benefit from new facilities at Brittons Playing Field which aims to address a shortfall in pitches in the borough.
Local charities, St Matthew’s Project and CEF Lyncx will deliver programmes including disability sessions and multi-sports activities at a new floodlit multi-use games area on Roupell Estate in Brixton.
The Fulham Foundation also hopes to use the facility to deliver a range of programmes including Kicks, Walking Football, Girls Wildcats and Mental Health Sessions.
Capital City Academy are set to build new accessible changing rooms while Westminster Academy's new pitches will support numerous local community groups and charities delivering a variety of programmes.
