CMK’s community will soon be benefiting from a new centre for sports practise, games and parties. Plans are afoot to open the new “Sport Central” facility on Elder Gate in September, subject to Milton Keynes Council agreeing an operator to run the new centre.
The centre features three outdoor games areas. The largest of these is a professional-quality rugby and football pitch, with a state-of-the-art astroturf surface and powerful floodlights for after-dark events. Alongside this are two smaller courts; one for basketball and netball, and the other for tennis.
The centre has been built for the local community to use, and will be available for parties, casual practises and local groups to use. However, it is also expected to be used by professional sports teams to train and even hold matches. CMK Town Council was recently invited to take a tour of the facilities, and some photos from this tour are included here.
