First tenants move in
4 January 2010
SportPark welcomed its first residents this month with the arrival of Charlie Bethell and his team from GB Wheelchair Basketball.
It seems appropriate that one of the very first NGBs to publicly commit to the concept of SportPark should be the first to arrive through its doors. The move went well and the team were quickly up and running in their new home with the GBWBA office looking good.
Hard on Wheelchair Basketball’s heels are the Youth Sport Trust. With about 70 staff based at SportPark Jo Simpson and Helen Shuttleworth led the YST team to its new home and did a fantastic job.
They are occupying the second floor across two pavilions and have created a very modern contemporary feel to the space which is perfectly in tune with the buildings aspirations.
It's a high quality environment that’s both functional and funky.
Next in will be Volleyball England followed by English Federation for Disability Sport (East Midlands) and Leicestershire and Rutland County Sports Partnership.
