RACECOURSE EAST PARK PARADE, NORTHAMPTON, Northamptonshire, NN1 4LB
- New 11v11 Floodlit 3G FTP (2)
- Refurbish Changing Pavilion (1)
NFFS outcome score
Existing facilities: 21 full size pitch equivalents with changing provision.
Current users: currently used by 21 teams from a range of different clubs. This site is also used by organisations such as Free2Talk, which uses sports such as football within their programmes and work with a wide range of young people with varying challenges. Northampton Leisure Trust also run Street Football at this site.
Rationale: a well used, central site that sits within an area of high deprivation. This site already has a range of football activity taking place from competitive to informal participation. The addition of a dual 3G FTP would contribute to addressing demand currently not being met due to the inaccessibility of current school based 3G FTPs.
Potential use by the Weetabix youth league.
Parking and access would also need to be considered as part of this project.
