Refurbishment of Changing Rooms at Arnold Leisure Centre
Vernon is delighted to learn that the changing rooms at Arnold Leisure Centre are set to be improved thanks to £242,000 of National Lottery funding from Sport England.
Across England, 38 artificial grass pitches and swimming pool changing rooms will be replaced and refurbished after Sport England announced £9.9 million of investment from the first round of its new Improvement Fund.
With three-quarters of people citing the quality of the pitch surface and the changing rooms as being important to their sporting experience, the Improvement Fund will improve these facilities for the benefit of thousands of people.
Sport England Property Director, Charles Johnston, said: “As the research shows people have a better experience of sport when the facilities are good both on and off the pitch. These investments in artificial grass pitches and swimming pool changing rooms will have a big impact on sport in local communities.”
Between now and 2017, Sport England will invest £45 million of lottery funding through the Improvement Fund into medium-sized projects to improve grassroots sport facilities.
