Badminton School were delighted to break new ground on Monday 21st August 2017 as the building of their new Sports Centre officially started.
The £3.5 million build will feature a flexible ‘Sport England’ standard four-court space accommodating multiple sport needs such as basketball, hockey, netball, badminton and trampolining. A fully equipped Fitness Suite with weights and resistance machines, an indoor climbing wall, a fencing piste, indoor and outdoor viewing galleries and a Sports Therapy Room for physiotherapy and sports assessments are just some of the outstanding facilities the Sports Centre will have to offer.
The benefits of the Sports Centre however will extend beyond the Badminton community, as the facilities will be open to local primary and secondary schools for team sports as well as local community clubs. It also aims to attract local and national teams to compete and train at the facility.
Rebecca Tear, Headmistress at Badminton School, commented: “We eagerly await the completion of our new Sports Centre. I want physical activity and fitness to be a fundamental part of the girls’ lives at Badminton and beyond. The development will provide our girls with inspirational facilities, training opportunities and specialist coaches to enable them to thrive”.
