Battersea Park Sports Pitch Gets An Upgrade

New state-of-the-art artificial turf is now ready for a full range of sport

Sports fans can now enjoy upgraded facilities at the Battersea Park Millennium Arena following a £100k sports pitch replacement

The area is one of the borough’s premier sports facilities with an eight lane running track catering for a full range of track and field disciplines, plus a fitness centre, 19 floodlit tennis courts and two multi-purpose all-weather pitches.

Another pitch was upgraded two years ago, and the most recent work means the site now has two state-of-the-art artificial pitches suitable for hockey, football and tennis. The Millenium Arena is managed on behalf of the council by Enable Leisure and Culture.

The council’s spokesman for community services and open spaces, Cllr Steffi Sutters, said, “These Millennium Arena pitches are heavily used by tennis players in the summer and five-a-side in the winter and are a vital facility for local schools.

“This court was looking rather tired, but now it has a specialist sports surface able to cope with the high level of demand. It will be available for all the community to use all year round for years to come.”
