Regular exercise at all ages is proven to provide social and personal benefits as well as improving physical and mental health.
Good sporting facilities are fundamental to developing sporting opportunities for everyone, from the youngest beginner in primary schools, to British teenage sensations playing at their local leisure centres.
Outdoor sport facilities, whether large or small, can also encourage civic pride and assist the process of revitalising schools and communities. Facilities that are well designed, built to last and well maintained are a pleasure to use and give an ample return on the time and money invested in their construction and day to day operation.
One of the toughest challenges for sporting facility managers, school head teachers and construction professionals is how to engage non-sporting people through design. Sports centres demand innovative design to meet the needs of their users while also remaining inspiring so that sports enthusiasts enjoy using them and keep coming back for more.
Ensuring that your sporting facilities can be used all year round, whatever the weather, is vital in increasing sporting uptake so you and its users can reap the rewards. Kaizen Primary School have experienced great success since opening their covered MUGA late last year, a structural application that is equally beneficial to leisure centres across the county.
