Moredon Sporting Hub nearing completion

By Barrie Hudson - 22 March 2024


An update on the creation of the new multi-sport Moredon Sporting Hub has been issued by Swindon Borough Council.

Over the coming weeks, the finishing touches will be made to the new pavilion and it will be handed over to Central Swindon North Parish Council for fit out.

Work will also be completed on the cycle track which is currently being tarmacked.

The whole scheme is on track to be completed by its Spring deadline and will also be on budget. A grand opening will take place early in the Summer to take advantage of the better weather.

Cllr Jim Grant, Cabinet Member for Communities and Joint Working, said: “I’m very pleased to see that this amazing project is almost complete.

“It’s on track and on budget which is a great achievement for the project team and I can’t wait to see the facility fully open.

“While construction is set to finish in the coming weeks, the parish will still have to fit out the pavilion and then it will all systems go for planning the big launch early in the summer.”

Even though construction is still underway, the new all-weather pitch is open and local football teams have been using the facilities by booking through the parish council.

Built by the borough council, and funded by the Premier League, The FA, the Government’s Football Foundation, Sport England, British Cycling and Central North Swindon Parish Council, the hub will also offer sport leisure for all ages and will be aimed at those new to the sports available at the site.

It will also be open to those who may have stopped playing but are keen to return to sport and physical activity, as well as those wishing to continue their activity in a better environment.

Alongside the football and cycling, users of the hub will also be able to play cricket and croquet as well as enjoy the café inside the new pavilion.
