  2. Fitness Gym (with showers, toilets and changing rooms)
  3. Grass pitch

Polysport is a valuable part of our community which has been running for nearly 20 years. The project was started and has been maintained through fundraising and the support of our community. We have kept the membership fees low, but are making a small increase this year. Running costs each year include insurance (£1600), electricity, upkeep and maintenance of the Astroturf pitch and the gym. Income for Polysport has been reduced since the football team stopped using the facilities and regular activities such as tennis are less well attended.

We would also love to increase what we can offer at Polysport and are looking for ideas e.g. 5-a-side football, netball, basketball. The changing rooms are not currently used by a team so could have a new purpose to make best use of the space we have. Ideas for alternative uses are welcome. Please email any ideas or use the post box. If you would consider getting involved, it would be great to have some new committee members or volunteers to help develop the facility.

Annual membership fees run for a calendar year from 1st Jan 2019 and allow unlimited play for the year, use of changing facilities, fitness equipment and access to coaching sessions which may involve an additional charge.
